Convention Make and Takes - Using "The Crime Scene" stamp set

Donna Griffith, from Demonstrator Training at Stampin' Up, presented the "Gorgeous Grunge" stamp set at convention.  She said that her initial reaction to the stamp set was that it looked like a crime scene - tire tracks, splatters, police tape... This make and take used the "Gorgeous Grunge: (aka: "The Crime Scene") set and the "Hello, Lovely" set.  

The "tire tracks" are in Crisp Canteloupe, the splatters are in Summer Starfruit and Coastal Cabana (stamped off)  and Old Olive.  I made my own "Washi Tape" and decorated my arrow  using the "police tape" stamp.  The original make and take recommended the Epic Day washi tape.

The colored twine was a neat trick, we took plain white baker's twine, pressed it between a stampin' sponge and a Bermuda Bay ink pad, and pulled it through.
