Grunge Board, Oh Yeah!!

Hi Hello and happy Saturday to you all:0)
I've gone all green and grungy with Grunge board today, it's Tim Holtz's  so it would be wouldn't it?
Actually no it's Clean and simple, bit of stamping and a bit of painting and bingo we have a card
 Tee, hee, can you guess what the fish are made from?
 
A bit sneaky really but they are the brackets from the Stripes Digits and Punctuation set! I thought they looked like angel fish:0)
It's grunge week at the Craft Barn, all this week there have been some really great projects with grunge paper, you might want to check it out!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I love to hear your comments so Thank You very much for leaving them :0)

The fish are coated in Cosmic shimmers, Golden mint and Tim Holtz distress ink , Broken China
Copic pens numbers G00, BG34 and YG41 to draw weeds.Back to top
Tim Holtz, Stripes digits and punctuation.
Tim Holtz, Bitty Grunge Stamps
Micro beads for the bubbles
Brilliance inks, jade and lime.

Ypu are so inventive Gay. The colours are beautiful. You managed to combine grunge with CAS! Have had grunge paper in my stash for a year now, without using it. Must get it out and have a play.
