Grungeboard Daisy

I LOVE Grungeboard and I look for different ways to use it. Recently at a Stamping Convention there was a booth (sorry I can’t remember the name/company) that had all of Tim Holtz’s products and they had a different way to use Grungeboard! You can actually form/mold grungeboard into a shape. Look at today’s card:

Grungeboard Daisy:

See how the petals and center of the flower is kinda bent like a petal… Here is the process that I used to achieve this effect:

Stamped image with Stazon and allow to dry
Cut image
Mist both sides with water and form by hand until you get the desired shape
Allow to dry
Sponged with ink
I think this card turned out Okay for my first try. One of the things with Grungeboard that I struggle with is that your ink color changes… I guess I just need to keeping playing with it :0) …

Have a fab day!
