“Love Nest” An Adventure in Grunge

Vivian PictureHi friends!  Vivian here today to share with you Hampton Art fans some of my grunge love.  One of the many things I adore about Hampton Art is that they carry such a wide array of stamps to suit all crafting styles.  Even more amazing is that a stamp that you might initially categorize as a Clean and Simple stamp just might totally float a grungy crafter's boat. 

Today I have a video tutorial illustrating all the techniques that went into creating this grunge-inspired project.  We will use some fab Hampton Art woodblock stamps and mix the media to make this heavily textured "Valentine's" themed project.

It's a Sizzix Pop 'N Cut card, so there's also a little surprise inside that you'll only get to see if you watch the tutorial.

Ultimately, I loved how the qualities inherent in grunge ended up contrasting dramatically with my pure white focal image, my little "Love Nest."


More stills, a complete supply list, and a juicy HD video are ready for your viewing pleasure - make sure to adjust your viewing settings to HD on youtube!
