In with the New ... Out with the Old

This round's theme for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge is 

"In with the new....Out with the Old"

The challenge is to create a card using something new and something old on your card.
I just got some of the January release stamps - Grunge is my thing so this release is right up my alley!  For this challenge, I got to use some of my new stamps and some old alcohol inks.  I stamped the Grunge Cross on a piece of Acetate using StazOn and then colored it with Alcohol Inks to create a stained glass look.  I layered the cross over the larger Grunge Cross from the Never Give Up set and added some bling!

Cardstock:  Truly Yours – white card base; The Paper Company – Charcoal Gray Cover
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs – Grunge Cross, Never Give Up
Inks, Stains and Paints:  Versafine – Onyx Black; StazOn – Jet Black, Adirondack Alcohol Inks – Butterscotch, Watermelon, Sail Boat Blue, Wild Plum
Accessories & Other Stuff:   Hero Arts Gems


Blessed to have been Honored with the SLC Award!
