New Challenge at TIME OUT!

Hi friends!
We have a new challenge for you at TIME OUT! It's

Grunge with the optional twist of Embossing

You can use any kind of embossing that you want.

What does 'Grunge' mean for us papercrafters??

Grunge is characterized by distressed, worn-out elements and the use of subtle
or earthy colours. Think torn edges, textured backgrounds, 'dirty' appearance, splatters, stains, even hand-drawn lines. That said, grunge doesn't always mean
"dirty" or subdued colours. A card can have subtle grunge elements in light or soft ink 
and yet still look clean and simple. Just think of grunge as the
opposite of "polished". 

We are sponsored by STAMPlorations:

There's two 10 $ coupons on offer. 

This time our Guest Designer is Ksenija. I hope you'll check out her project and the cards of our regular DT members from the challenge blog

In my card I've used stamps by STAMPlorations:



My card consists of simple stamping, a strip of designer paper and some twine. Hope you like and see you at  TIME OUT!
