Have you ever used it? Do you like it? Is it worth it? I'm debating buying some cuz it looks just awesome but I don't want it to be something that just ends up sitting in my stash never getting used.

If you do like it, how have you used it? Any tips or advice?

TIA!

You should look in Scrapperlicious´s gallery she uses it all the time! I have used it a couple of times, it´s not acid free so you´ll have to paint it with acrylic paint or glossy accents or something similar if you use it with photos. I love the look if it!

Here´s a card where I´ve inked the grungeboard with Black soot, distress ink.

There are a few I have done with Grungeboard!

I love it, but some people don't like it. It helps if you love to work with inks.

On the first one, the butterfly is Grungepaper that I cut with my Cricut, then I adhered paper to it, inked it, then covered it with diamond dust.

On the others, the Grungeboard pieces are all inked with Distress inks and-or Smooch inks and sprays or Glimmer Mist.

HTH!

love grungeboard ... it's more flexible than chipboard and I love the texture. I ink it, mist it, stickle it, paint it, chalk it, and anything else I can think of.

The swirl is grungeboard that I painted and misted.

LOVE it and use it whenever I can! The pre-cut items you're looking to buy are awesome because you can do anything you want with them. It's a great starting point.

BUT, it's also purty durn cool to get the basic sheets; then cut them up with a die cutter to make any shapes your heart desires. Use the cut images as masks, paint or ink for embellishment, rip them apart to use parts, instead of the whole.... Good dimension and I prefer it to chipboard for it's flexibility.

I LOVE Grunge Board!! It's wonderful because unlike chip board you can ink it until your hearts desire and it won't flake or break. You can bend it and it won't break either!! The hinges are wonderful and can actually be used as real working hinges!
