Grungy Monday #3/SSS-show me some Distress

Combo time again.For Linda's Grungy Monday, we had to use some of Tim's colorwash sprays and for SSSS we had to Distress. Easy enough, I pulled out some of my sprays for this and decided to use Sailboat Blue and Orange Sunset and spray them through sequin waste. You won't believe the look I got is from those two colors! I overstamped with Ranger embossing ink and embossed with black detail powder.i used Tim's tattered flower die and the paper that they wad up in our orders to fill the boxes and made some flowers with brads holding them together. I then crumpled them up and sprayed with yellow and orange color washes and then Perfect Pearls mist over that for shimmer. Added one of these to it and glued some DewDrops on with glossy accents. I added tissue tape and then blended distress ink over that using walnut stain and then filmstrip tape over that. White seam binding for the ribbon that I colored myslef by smearing walnut stain distress ink onto my craft sheet and then spraying it with Butterscotch colorwash spray and crumpled the ribbon and dragged it through the puddle several times and let dry. Attached the filmstrip ribbon with Tim's tiny attacher.

Great tag - I love the filmstrip ribbon on here and the effect you get with the sequin waste - done it with a blending tool but not with a spray - must try it!

Ooh, what a cool design, Kathy! You have such a great eye for composition, and this just draws the eye right in. Using the Color Wash through sequin waste is a great idea-- this background is fabulous! I love the big flower and that darling, image, too.
