SimonSaysStamp and Show your... Grunge

 Welcome... hope you had a wonderful weekend it's Monday morning which means.... A wonderful exciting

My grunge is all about the grungepaper, LOVE this stuff!!! it folds, bends, takes inks and paint, it does shrink slightly with heating! 
 
I have been eager to try Tim's Rusted Enamel from His Compendium of Curiosities book since forever! Once I had cut the pieces from grunge paper I stamped the fabulous flourishes then I went straight in with the technique before adhering the star together! I thought this could look good on a boy's bedroom wall which then led me to making these vintage inspired booties! 

 
Also from grungepaper, I cut the pieces, inked them with distress inks, I ran the soles through with a texture fades folder to add texture and finished off the ribbon ends with Tim's tissue tape for the aglet(whatever they're called).
 Supplies: Paper: Grunge paper;
Stamps: Tim Holtz: Fabulous flourishes;
Ink: Ranger ~ Distress inks; distress embossing;
Dies: Sizzix ~ 3D star; Texture fades;
Other: Clear embossing powder; Tissue Tape; Checked ribbon; 3D foam;

 Thank you so much for stopping by I hope you feel inspired and check out the rest of the teams stunning grunge projects!!!

How can one person be so talented! these are truly stunning....the star looks like metal...I had to look twice at it when I read it was grungepaper

Kim, your Simon Says projects blow me away every week. You are amazingly talented! The booties are very cute, but I'm just in love with that star. That's a fabulous technique - it looks so authentically rusty. Now I want to make it as a gift for someone I know who would love it. Where did you get the star pattern?
