Art and crafting styles, Distress oxide ink, Gorgeous Grunge

Grungey bird card

I needed a simple just because card and decided to make a one layer card using this fabulous bird stamp I got as a magazine gift recently… I just adore it … plus I have been slightly Hunger Games obsessed recently and it makes me think of the Mockingjay symbol.


… I stamped it in versafine and heat embossed it with clear powder. Then I added the Gorgeous Grunge splashes and splodges behind the image using distress oxide ink. I love the vibrancy of the inks.

Next I took the black soot and seedless preserve oxides and watercoloured the bird.

This made the bird stand out more but also made the black less stark and gave the bird some texture.

Love how this came out and will definitely be doing something similar to this again with this stamp.

Happy crafting !
