I have wanted to make a grunge bag since for ages but thought I would start with something a little smaller... I have used the Tag and Bookplate die as the template, I've folded grungepaper in half and ran through die cut machine to create a tag top at each end, then sewn up the sides to form a pocket.
I used the solid flower from Wendy's Botanical art, stamped directly onto grungepaper and covered with glossy accents. When the accents were dry I went over with the polka dots, stamped using ranger paint dabber, which resisted the distress inks.
I have lined the inside of my case with felt to protect the contents...
Yes my ipod, now I can wear it around my neck and save the screen getting scratches.
I have created a loop to hold my ear phones too.
So, the back has had the same resist treatment as the front but using the leaves from nature's art. The sentiment is also from nature's art stamped using archival black. The strap is the polka dots ribbon from Webster's pages holiday trims. I have made a channel for the ribbon so it can be changed or if I didn't want a strap one day I can used the loop on the side, stamped with the star from Bitty Grunge set.
For access to the bits on my ipod I've used sizzix corners to create ornate holes to feed cables through.
Hope it inspires and why not pop round the rest of the team to see what they do with polka dots!!!
