grungy Monday.......

Yep I know it, Tuesday but thats the name of the challenge blog over at Lindas place, the challenge is to follow the deets from Mr Grunge himself .......click here to see what I'm rambling on about. I've never made my own stamp before and I didn't have any funky foam so I used cut n' dry foam and the tattered floral die.....now its double sided, one side for the matte multi medium and the other for stamping well I'd say it was more sponging but you get my drift.





So for this weeks challenge of 'Distress ink and Multi Medium' I used Victorian velvet, Bundled sage, Tea Dye and Aged Mahogany.....I think I need to challenge myself to use different colours, oh well maybe next week. Mind you the colours I have in my home are reds and golds.....which brings me onto the challenge at Try it on Tuesday as they want you to create something inspired from your home (border of wallpaper and dado rail), their sponser this week is One Stop Crafts who have donated a £10 spend.....
The challenge at Simon Says stamp and show is anything but a card. Our Creative Corner want to see handmade flowers.

My son went for his interview at Rare today, their studios are in part of a converted warehouse in Digbeth in Birmingham from the outside of the building it looked quite derelict but when you went through two rather large blue doors the reception  was awesome with Renaissance art work in arches all around the room which were back lit, there were huge sofas in an ochre coloured velvet as well as lots of lit candles....I would have been happy just sat there all day. the building also houses a cafe and other art studios as well as a courtyard garden in the centre of the building......who would have though something so lovely was behind brick walls......fingers crossed that he gets a position.
