Grunge....ish!

Good evening lovelies! Phew it's been a hot one here! Not complaining though!
Well today I received my fab new stamps from Visible Image! And I couldn't wait to play! You must check them out, Helen and Mark give the most amazing service! And their stamps are of a very high quality, I ordered Wednesday and received them today! http://www.visibleimage.co.uk/ so here's what I created! I used Harlequin background, Grunge polka dot background and Grunge flourish, all from Visible Image, and combined with a couple of Creative Expressions stamps: sentiment and cogs background, the script is an old wooden stamp I've had for years, so I masked the edges of 8x8 scalloped edge card base, stamped the script with antique linen DI then over stamped using the Harlequin background which I used wild honey DI second generation, as I wanted a more distressed effect for the background, then lightly inked with mustard seed DI, the topper I stamped in white brilliance ink the script then inked using, broken china, chipped sapphire, mustard seed crushed olive and wild honey DI, then over stamped very randomly without a block the grunge polka dots in broken china the harlequin in wild honey, the cogs in chipped sapphire, the sentiment and Grunge flourish are stamped in black, added a couple of bits of twine and viola! Hope you like it, I'm quite enjoying this technique at the mo xxx
