Tilda & Co Challenge ~28~ Grunge
Challenge 28 Tilda & Co - Distressed Tilda
Make her Distressed looking, a little rough around the edges, a bit of grungy!
So stay clear of these cute pastel colours if you can help it and get down and dirty with tilda!
I had great fun making this card! I went to work on this with a sanding block, I took an emery board to the Tilda image, smudged ink and chalk all over, I even pinched a toy car, inked up the wheels and ran that over the paper. Luckily I had a torn paper flower in my jar so I inked that too. The brads received ink, some of Hubby's paint and a good go with the sanding block as well. The button I actually bought looking like that lol. I crumpled some Rusty Pickle paper after adding the Tattered Angel sentiment and fixed this with silicone to keep it's shape. There are some glossy accents but these don't really show in the photo.
The effect I was trying to achieve was something that resembled a once pretty card that had been left somewhere dank and filthy then forgotten about for years.
Strangely enough most of my friends would probably rather receive this card than many of the cards I normally make.
