Delayed Reaction Copycat!!

As much as i love this grungeboard purse project... it was not my own idea.. i saw a fab one created by Linda some weeks ago and just knew i wanted to give it a try.
I coloured my grungeboard with vintage photo distress inks, then stamped the fab artistic stamper houndstooth pattern over the entire piece, folded it to resemble a purse, and then punched the holes down either side with my BIA, i threaded together with string, which i also lightly coloured with ink.
I attached a clasp from my collection with eyelets to close, and embellished with some Tim Holtz idea-ology bits, i also made a grungepaper flower using the flower power stamp set and dotty background stamp also from AS,
The back i kept simple by adding a closed stamped zip.
Quite a simple but fun project to create.. why not give it a try yourself.. would make a nice little gift for someone perhaps!
