my play with Grungeboard
well I got my little stash of Grungeboard today (thanks to Nat at Scraptivate for sending it so quickly). It smells like a new basket ball, it has a sort of rubbery smell that goes with it's rubbery feel, it comes out cleanly and is very resiliant. I stamped on it, heated it, scrunched it up, stained it...all in all I had fun with it. It is terrific value also.
Well enough of my rambling, here are a couple of things I made:
I made a simple sign for the boy's bedroom door, the hangy heart thingy might end up on the front of a book yet, and the canvas (5x7)is my fave, I have added two photos of her so you can see the difference when she is laid down and upright....her wings, crown and the flourish are all grungeboard, the wings have fusible film on them and I was very impressed with how well it took it, instead of gold embossing I simply highlight the pattern with gold rub n' buff, swiped them with gel medium and super heated the film as per usual. (I painted them green first with a green starburst stain), I love that the heat caused the film to curl the wings a little.
Now go buy Grungeboard and have fun!!!
