Andy Warhol Inspired Grunge

Happy Friday Peoples!!  This weeks Just For Fun® Color Challenge is brought to us by Rita:

I knew immediately that I wanted to use Music Men with these colors!! But, somewhere in my online cruising, I got the strange idea to do an Andy Warhol type layout.  I messed around with stamping the image on different colors of paper and stamping it on different distressed backgrounds.  After several failed attempts, I decided that I liked the way these two images came out side by side.

I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and did the wrinkle free distress technique. I used Distress Antique Linen and spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Old Lace and very lightly Tattered Leather.  For the first image, I flipped the stamp over and carefully applied my distress inks in Rusty Hinge and Broken China randomly along the image.  For the second image, I stamped it using Archival Jet Black ink and then sponged Rusty Hinge and Broken China randomly.  As luck would have it, I stamped the images straight and lined up!! What are the odds of that ever happening again?!! snort.  I then lightly sponged the outside edges and distressed using my distressing tool from SU.  I just bought K&Company's paper pack and found the perfect background paper.  I struggled with different embellishments but in the end decided to keep this CAS (clean and simple) with just the antique colored brads.  The card base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" .  Supplies:  Stamps: Music Men from Just for Fun.  Papers: Very Vanilla, K&Company.  Inks: Distress inks in Rusty Hinge, Broken China, Antique Linen.  Accessories:  distressing tool, brads, sponges.

Of course, you'll want to check out what all the other design team members did with these colors!!


We'd love to have you play along with us!  Just link your creation (using what ever stamps you'd like!!) to the Just For Fun Blog using Mr. Linky! 

Thanks for dropping by again today!  Remember to take time for some type of creativity in your day!!
