Pootles Stampin’ Up! UK Grungy Metal Gridwork. And Flowers?
Well this week definitely turned into a kind of floral week. Not deliberate, but as I said earlier in the week, I’m reaching for my floral products more and more.
But this time, I decided to add in a sort of ‘underground’ feel with the Off the Grid stamp. How cool is that? I will confess, that like the Gorgeous Grunge stamp (of course, also used here), it wasn’t one that I went for immediately the catalogue came out. It must have taken me 3 or 4 months before making the purchase.
And I’m very pleased I took the plunge!
It’s not the easiest to work with at first glance, but it does add some texture, and like my Twisted Grid card back at Christmas, it gives a real textured feel to the card.
But I didn’t want a totally masculine card. I wanted the Underground feel, but with a flick of the feminine involved. So some punched flowers using the Pansy Punch and the DSP stacks (coastal cabana, whisper white, smoky slate, basic grey) with a cool Basics Metal Button in each was what I ended up with.
And again, as I said the other day, I very rarely trash a project; when I go for it, I go for it and hope it turns out.
I like this card. I’m not sure I love it. I think the buttons being at wrong angles is what’s aching my brain on this…
I’d love to hear your thoughts too.
I hope you enjoyed this project, please do use the hostess code to support Pootles! (hostess code shown in the top right of my blog for the current one!)
