Grungy Ballerina

Hello! We have some fabulous hot pink inspiration from Becca Cruger here on the blog today…

Happy Sunday, friends! I’m popping in to share a card I just created for Visible Image. I was really really excited to get the Born to Perform set because I don’t have any stamps for dancing or performing arts and this set is super unique and artsy..

One of the techniques I like to use from time-to-time is to use my ink pad directly to press ink on to my paper. In this case, I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide.

Next, I spritzed the ink with water to let it bleed and soften the hard edges.

I stamped a series of words to create a graffiti-like effect in the background.

On the bottom layer of my card base, I added a little bit of stamped grunge with the Universal stamp set..

I added some hand-drawn stitching, washi tap and black gemstones, along with a stamped ballet dancer to finish off the design.

I hope you all like it!

Loving your grungy background Becca and our ballerina looks gorgeous in pink! Thank you ♡
