A new challenge over at, today, 
and this is my go on   GRUNGY  !!

If you like to take part ,you know there is a 20 Pound voucher  to win and use in the online shop 

I had fun creating this  grungy beach panel, using one of That`s Crafty white Greyboards surfaces.
They are great to work with ,as they keep stable, even when using lots of water and inks.

Also used some lovely butterfly embellishments, and the Dinky fossil 
added with Golden Coarse Pumice Gel- colored with brown paint .

Also used Tyvek to create "stones" on the beach, and added
little shells, netting,and a piece od real seaweed

It was wonderful playing with all these materials ,to 
create a grungy look .

Hugs and love Dorthe

Oh Dorthe this piece flows beautifully, it has such a natural feel to it and so pleasing to the eye. I love your addition of Tyvek and the netting, another tactile stunner that I would love to run my fingers across.

This is gorgeous, dear Dorthe! I love all the wonderful nautical elements and the grungy touch is certainly along my alley. It was a great idea to create stones with Tyvek. They look fantastic!
