A little bit of winter in August with grunge flakes :)

I recently purchased a set of Tim Holtz's Grunge Flakes by Stampers Anonymous...LOVE them!!!!!!!!!!!! I used them with Versamark ink to make the bacground paper...i like the watermark effect :) The frame was actually a solid Unity stamp....I cut the bird image out of the center with an exacto knife and voila! I was left with a gorgeous frame....yummy! My heart flutters when I can use a stamp in more than one way :) Wouldn't you agree?

Love the grunge snowflakes and what an amazing way to repurpose this stamp! I am going to have to look at mine in a whole new way : )

So fun, Pryn! Love the how you used the stamp, and the grunge snowflakes! And I know what you mean about using your stamps in a different way - been challenging myself to do that lately. :)
BIG hugs!!! :)
