FCD May Mayhem blog hop


Hello to all you blog hoppers,

This month we have some very grungy art for you in our Firecracker Designs By Pamela May Mayhem BLOG HOP.
The word grunge is believed to be a back-formation from the US slang adjective grungy, which originated in about 1965 as a slang term for "dirty" or "filthy".
It's basically the kind of stuff Tim Holtz creates: rough edges, sanding, crumpling, tea/walnut stains, aged, etc.




For my card I used a combination of digital and rubber stamps ( rubber: Sally Says, Chicory and dots distress and the digital "give my heart wings"). Now I guess you are interrested in how I made this grungy background. it is done with alcohol ink and there is a tutorial HERE that you can print.

As usual the blog hop candy winner will be chosen from a mystery blog hostess that we don’t even know who it will be until the hop is over…so that’s why you’ll want to leave a comment on EVERY blog, so you don’t miss out!
**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Mon, at 8:00 PM (EST).**

Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to CAT's blog for more inspiration and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started! Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!

Attention all digital design artists! FCD is looking to start our very first Digi Design Team!! If you are interested in applying please read this blog post for details! Hurry! Applications must be in by May 25th! Midnight EST! (DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 25)
