Challenge #5 | DT Reveal

It’s Friday, and I’d like to share Holly’s layout completed for Amanda’s grungeboard challenge!


Supply list:  Stampin’ Up! and My Mind’s Eye patterned paper; Tim Holtz grungeboard and ink applicator tool; Stampin’ Up! and VersaColor ink; Sharpie marker; American Crafts and Adorn It alpha stickers; My Mind’s Eye, Me And My Big Ideas and Heidi Swap chipboard embellishments; American Crafts badge buttons; Recollections washi tape; Stampin’ Up! border punch and ribbon.

About her technique, Holly says:

I added additional dimension to the grungeboard pieces using ink and marker. To begin, I inked the entire piece of chipboard with the darker of two teal inks. Next, to make the raised design stand out even more, I accented some of the swirls by going over them with a Sharpie marker that was a shade darker than the ink. Finally, I used a foam applicator to apply ink in a lighter shade over some areas of the grungeboard for a more muted colour. It’s easier to ink your grungeboard before you adhere it to your page, since it is flexible by design and you can flex it to get ink right up to the edges or corners!

Here’s a close-up peek at her grungeboard technique:

  1. Holly, just love your use of grungeboard here! Highlighting the embossing with a marker really provided punch. The best thing about the layout though is the photo of Smokey caught mesmerized by Vanessa’s journaling. :)


I'd love to hear what you think about this!
