3D Grunge Letter A




Good Morning, How's your week end Going? I am enjoying the warmth I can tell you. I have made a special piece, called 'I Love Craft'. I have had these paper mache 3D letters for a while and I have finally decided to decorate them. This is the first one and I have gone for the grunge look.



I am also using this for a challenge over at Linda's, She is doing a Tim Holtz Challenge again and this week it's on page 44 Of the CCs, Chipped Enamel.  GSC challenge is 3D so I figure this covers it ;0) SSS&S is Layers and there are lots of layer's of paper glue Distress powder etc ;0) Play Date Cafe is a colour challenge and the colours are on the DP paper (although I admit they are not really main colours but I have missed playing). And finally, at The Shabby Tea Room it's Old meets new. I have used an old letter & image, that I've had for ages with some new design papers. 



There are quite a few details. I have used lots of lovely things and I look forward to making my next letter. I think every thing is pretty self explanatory Apart from the bottle cap. I filled this with an image I stamped & inked put some seed beads in, then filled with Glossy accents when dry I also put alcohol inks all over the back (not that you can see that but when I made t I didn't know what I would use if for lol. The metal 'inspire' is a button covered with paint then wiped off. Grunge paper using a TH Die Cut some shaped board and plenty of inks, both distress and alcohol and some really lovely DPs. I hope you have a a good look and please go have a nosey at the DT teams efforts for the challenges I have entered there really good. Love Dawn xx

Items Used:- Design Papers (DPs) My Minds Eye & Tim Holtz.  Stamps, Paper Artsy. Board, Maya Road. Grunge Paper, ornate frame, alcohol Inks, Distress Inks, Grunge board and Distress Powder, Tim Holtz. Acrylic Paint Dabber, Ranger.
