Industrial or grunge at stamps and stencils

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are well. Its time for a new challenge at stamps and stencils and this time its all about industrial and grunge. Here's what Cec has to say...

 Industrial/Grungy Create a mixed media project with some stamping and/or stenciling that puts off a very industrial and grungy vibe - be sure to include lots of metal and texture.

I decided to make a male card using some of the recently released Tracey Easson stamps ... the ones with the boys on.... here's my card...

I think it will make a great card for a young neighbour later this month. Here's a few steps ....

I started with some texture paste through a stencil.....

Next I applied some gesso using a spatula to a card then added some distress oxides in carved pumpkin, vintage photo, black soot and hickory smoke. I wiped this back using a babywipe then moved on to decoration on top of the background i.e the stamping.

Once fussy cut I added them to the card....

Have a great day and try and join us at stamps and stencils if you can! Hugs Rachel x
