I used the Rebel Teal as the background card stock. I distressed the edges & inked with Distress Ink in the following colors: Black Soot, Fired Brick, & Broken China.
The kit included lettering are Thickers Sprinkles. The small font was the alphabet sticker from BasicGrey's Granola pack that were originally creme color. I painted them black with Ranger alcohol ink! It did the trick!
I distressed the photo edges with the Broken China & Fired Brick inks & matted on black card stock. I added a couple 7 Gypsies rub ons to the photo. Magic Mesh was placed under the photo. It was white, but I made it gold by using a metallic rub that can be purchased at a craft store. Ric rac was cut & adhered around pic.
I knew I did not want any flourishes with this layout, so I decided to use my Sizzix circle die & interconnect the links! I used black card stock & American Crafts Cherry. The Cherry was inked lightly with the broken china ink. I dotted the Cherry link with Black Diamond Stickles! I was happy with the effect the circles gave!
Flowers can be Grungy too!!!! I made the flowers using various punches & dies. The base layer & middle layer were made from cardboard & inked with the Broken China ink. The other layers were made from papers used in layout. The small flowers are made from 2 sizes Retro punch. I attached all flowers with a brad. I wanted to bring some white from the wedding gown into the layout so I painted the brad flower centers white with Ranger Liquid Pearls. A few pieces of ric rac were placed around edges as a filler!
I had a blast with this kit! Thanks so much for the blog visit my friends! So nice of you to stop by!
