Hello friends

Hope you are all good!
I can't believe its nearly the end of May!
How did that happen?
life has been a little hectic of late... hope to get back creating very soon.

I love to create grunge, Im always inspired by Tim, Seth Apter and Andy Skinner
(they totally rock the grunge!)

So here's my take on a grungy panel that I created using a black piece of card.
I started off creating the background with layers of Distress oxides....I just stamped using actual ink pads to layer the inks, drying in-between..
I then added layers of distress paints...
The bolts are from Tim's Industrial die by size 
the key is from my vintage collection 
I added some washers and painted them with rust paste 
To finish I added lots of drips of distress paints, a quote chip from Idea-ology and some grungy stars.

As always feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each and everyone.

Hope you enjoy the sunshine....its warming up nicely in the UK!
back soon!
