While I was at the Pickleberry shop I just had to pick up some grungepaper. I thought I'd try some out on a birthday card so I ran some through the cuttlebug in the textile folder and inked with faded jeans distress ink. It's hardy stuff! I'm looking forward to trying out some more techniques with it.

This weekend I had a great time at the alcohol ink workshop at Pickleberry Papercrafts. We learnt lots of different techniques taught by Jennie which we made into a sample tag book. Here are some of my favourites. I love the effect of the metal embossed in the cuttlebug embossing folder and then inked and my favourite was the double stamping technique. We used the text stamp as the background and over that stamped the image which allows the background to show through. We also got to ink and decorate a tin. I chose to ink mine in bright raspberry and watermelon with a splash of metallic silver. The text, butterflies and lace are all stamped in black archival ink over the top and all come from The Artistic Stamper The new lace stamps are really gorgeous and one just happened to fall into my shopping basket along with the new sequin waste stamp.
