Yes, I finished early (well, for me anyway, ha!). This is for the CCC#8 sponsored by Linda at StudioL3. This week's technique is inking Grunge. If you follow/read my blog you already know all about this continuing series of challenges. If not, go on over to StudioL3 and check it out---you'll be glad you did!
Also, I am entering this in Sunday Stampers Challenge and The Artistic Stamper (a new challenge blog): Something Old, Something New. The map is old (as well as the recycled cardboard). The Inked Grungeboard is new.
This particular piece is for the cover of a mini album that I am making for a friend that just moved. Inside I will have a picture of each room of the house they just moved from---for memory sake! Will post once I complete the project!
For the numbers I glued them down on cardboard before layering the map on top to create depth. I inked w/distress ink over the top to make them 'pop'.
