Oh yay......the sort out is finally over and all but two boxes of stuff have been found places in my newly laid out room. The two boxes have been shoved under the stairs and heaven only knows when they will see the light of day again.
Anyway while I was sorting out I found a piece of white card that I had sprayed with webbing spray and never done anything with and Saturday night I had the urge to do some really grungy stamping and the two cards are the result.
The green card is the webbing background washed with Adirondack inks and then overstamped with a small border stamp in each corner using Versamark which was then brushed with Cosmic Shimmer powders.
The main image was stamped in Versamark onto glossy card, dried and then sponged with inks. I then roughly inked the stamp with black StazOn and stamped over the image again, shifting the image slightly and not pressing fully to leave areas unstamped.
The clasps holding the picture on are tag tabs which have been brushed with Cosmic Shimmer powders and attached with paper fasteners.
The front of the card blank has been stamped in black StazOn and then a piece torn from the side has been inked and attached to the inside edge with DST.
Stamps by Paper Artsy.

The blue card has been sponged with Distress inks in Antique Linen and Blue Jeans then spritzed with water and dried. I over stamped using a flourish stamp from one of the Basic Grey sets.
The dragonfly is a Woodware Chippy which I have punched holes into with my Crop-adile. It had an ink wash and then was stamped and embossed in silver and brushed with Cosmic Shimmer powder. I'm chuffed to bits with the antennae as me and wire don't normally get on too well and I end up throwing my efforts away but I don't think this turned out too bad.

Jay of Indigo Inklings has very kindly given me another 'You Make My Day' award. Thank you so much Jay.
I will get around to passing this award on but my blog hopping time is severely limited at the moment as I have taken on another part time job and am now out of the house five days a week. By the time I get in and have had tea and bathed or showered it is quite late and then days off are spent catching up on jobs I've not got done. I'm not complaining although I will e glad when I get myself into a routine.

Well I had best be off and do another couple of things before I turn in for the night.
Thanks for dropping by.
