Time Out Guest Designer - Mid Challenge Reminder

Hello Everyone!
Всем привет!
The Grunge Style with Optional Twist of Embossing challenge is going on at TIME OUT. There is still time to join in. On my FIRST CARD I used the coloured embossing pastes and Splatters stencil from Tim Holtz. For the reminder I made more grungy card in more earthy colours attributable to Grunge Style:
Birthday Card with Painted Flowers from Altenew by Sweet Kobylkin
В блоге TIME OUT продолжается конкурс для открыток в стиле гранж с эмбоссингом (по возможности). Еще есть время, чтобы присоединиться. В работе над ПЕРВОЙ ОТКРЫТКОЙ я использовала окрашенную пасту для эмбосинга и трафарет от Tim Holtz. Для напоминания о конкурсе я сделала несколько более "поношенную" открытку в теплых немного землистых оттенках характерных для этого стиля.
Firstly, I made my own mask with oval opening and stamped handwritten script for the background in distress inks. Having removed the mask, I slightly watered the background with a clean bush to get distress inks running. When it dried, I stamped the Painted Flowers from Altenew and coloured them with Distress Stains. I did not care how accurate it turned out, my aim was to achieve the grunge look. Finally, I die cut the banner and stamped the sentiment and assembled the card.

Сначала я вырезала маску с овалом, через которую сделала оттиск дистрессами фоновой печати. Убрав маску, прошлась мокрой кистью по оттиску, чтобы буквы слегка расплылись. Когда вода высохла, напечатала цветы Painted Flowers от Altenew и небрежно раскрасила их с помощью Distress Stains. Меня не волновало точное попадание краски на оттиск, ведь цель - сделать открытку в стиле гранж. После этого вырезала баннер, напечала надпись и собрала открытку.

I hope you take some time out to play with us. HERE is all the information and the link up for Time Out #31.
