CCC#8, Sunday Stampers Challenge and Artistic Stamper

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'.

Very original piece! Love this! I used a map yesterday and loved how you used yours! I think we all have a great supply of old mapS!

Linda Ledbetter said...

Deanna, this is darling! What a great idea for a new homeowner-- they'll treasure that album always. Your inked grunge looks wonderful, and I love how you spelled out the address on the little sign posts on the old map.

This is so clever!
