Grunge is not a style that I use, but I did have a lot of fun making this card. I randomly sponged three colors over the background stencil. I poured water into the palm of my hand, and then dipped my fingers from my other hand into the water and flicked it over my front panel. Because the sponging is such light colors, the splattering doesn't really show in the photo, but it's there. Once dry, I used my scissors to rough up the edges for a distressed look.
I die-cut the tattered leaf from white cardstock and roughed up the edges same as the front panel. I dropped some re-inker from each of the three colors onto my craft sheet, misted with water and then dropped the leaf into the diluted inks. Once dry, I added more sponging around the edges to give the leaf more color. A simple sentiment finishes the card.
I hope you'll join us for the fun challenge. There are lots of ways to "grunge" up your cards and the team is looking forward to seeing how you interpret this word. As always, the challenge runs for two weeks so there's lots of time to play along. Check out the rules and see the amazing cards from the rest of Design Team and from our Guest Designer Anita (in France) ... lots of inspiration there! :)
