Good morning and Happy Wednesday!  Smiley from Can you believe that it’s Wednesday already?  I know I can’t, but then again, I’m still chasing myself around the house! Smiley from

Today is the Rubbernecker Blog Challenge.  You can find more deets on the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog.  The challenge this week is to use Grunge Board or Chip Board.  I chose to work with Grunge Board and had a great time getting my fingers all inky!  Actually, this isn’t even a card, but a 5.5 x 5.5 panel that I’m hoping to find a frame for.  Better yet, it may become the focal point on another project.  Who knows where this will end up!  All of a sudden I can see a large canvas with many different project boards on it – .

Grunge Heart Panel

The heart was inked with Fired Brick and then highlighted with Aged Mahogany.  The keyhole and key were first painted with Scattered Straw Distress Crackle Paint and then when it was dry, inked with Peeled Paint.  To add more dimension to these pieces, they were lightly dabbed with a Gold Paint Dabber and then highlighted with Vintage Photo.

The background paper is a 5.5 x 5.5 piece of Very Vanilla that was distressed by adding layers of color and drying in between each layer with an iron.  There is a light spray of Vintage Photo/Pearl Pearlized Distress Mist that was diluted with more water and ironed to dry.  I wanted this background to look like an old piece of paper that had been folded and refolded for years.  The ribbon was melted with a candle lighter.  The final project is mounted on a 5.5 x 5.5 square of cardboard.
