Hip Hop {Grunge Style}

Happy Hip Hop Peeps! I'm back with a quick one for you this week with a style combo....grunge and Clean & Simple. ???? Really! I think it goes quite well together and I was inspired by the oh so talented and SOOOOOOOOOOO sweet Wendy Vecchi herself! Ack! I had the pleasure of taking a class this weekend over at one of my local stores that Wendy was teaching. How much fun is that! Daisy {Eclectic Paperie} was there and {Bad} Sherry herself! Take a peek.....

Yeah, we are BFF's now. Honestly! ;) She is truly one of the most AMAZING gals you could ever have the pleasure of meeting and just so incredibly talented. I had so much fun learning new stuff during the class. And Sherry and Daisy! Love them both! I hate that I only see everyone at things like this. How fun it would be for all of us to live closer. In a perfect world.

Ok...on to today's hop. I'm trying to channel a bit of Wendy for todays post. It's actually sort of a Wendy/Jen combo. I pulled out my grunge paper, inks, Unity KOTM....and kraft card stock {of course}. Here's the result......


How many ways do I love this image! LOVE it! I used Ranger Inks to color {sponge} it in and did some popping up of different pieces. Add a bit of stitching, ribbon, and some distress stickles.....


How awesome are the distress stickles! I love the look on the wings.

That's it for me this week. Now it's time to head over to Natalie's blog....

Next Blog

Hope you enjoy! I will post you all soon! Have a good one!
