Studio L3 CCC #13 / Grungepaper

It's the 13th challenge over at Studio L3 and we are getting grundgy. Bubba really tried to stay awake for the finished project but couldn't.
Ok. so to make these flowers...... yea right... your not going to get the details to this technique from me. Nope my lips are sealed... So what are you waiting for??? Go out and get this book !!! Then you can play with the rest of us . I also threw in the "chipped enamel" technique from last week.
What I will tell you though is I used papers from Tim's "Lost and Found" collection and vintaged them up a bit with Distressed Stickles, in Concord Grape, Rock Candy, Peeled Paint, Broken China & Faded Jeans. Then I used Mr. T's flower die cut to cut some flowers from mesh metal to give a bit of texture pazazz. I made the velvet leaves using vintage flower press molds. As always, so much fun to participate in this challenge. Thank you Linda !

Spectacular grunge flowers, Toni! I love the colors and the variety of pattern and textures on the individual layers. The mesh metal is just awesome, and the velvet leaves are the perfect accent!

The background card is lovely as well. I love the stitched, leather-y tag and the sweet key stamp. Really, everything about your card is wonderful!

And Bubba is ADORABLE!!!
