Get Down and Dirty

Hello I am Princess Judy and I'll be hosting this week's A Muse Studio Challenge.  I confess that I am a clean stamper.  I don't like inky fingers, I don't like my desk blotter to be filled with stamp offs, dribbled ink. leaky markers or blobs of glue.  However, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy getting down and dirty from time to time.

For this challenge I ask that you use a technique that you find grungy and messy.  You could try sponging, direct to paper, sprays, distressed edges, tea dying, etc--whatever makes your paper crafting heart happy and your fingers and/or desk blotter messy.  I'm no Tim Holtz but here is what I've come up with to give you some inspiration.

I distressed almost all the edges, used Splash spray, crumpled and sanded paper, and dyed baker's cording on these cards.  That bottom card features some new A Muse products in the catalog that goes live this coming March 1st.  This is a new set, new dies, new patterned paper, and a new color.

Here are some grungy, messy, fussy, crumpled, wrinkles, sprayed, teased, dyed, etc. samples from my colleagues to help you come up with something to join in our challenge.  

The rules and regulations for joining our challenge can be found here.
