After what feels like a TON of fussy cutting flowers, I was ready to do something more masculine and grungy. This again is a baby photo of my mom but the significant thing about it is that this is the earliest photo of my grandfather that I have. He was 22 years old in 1926. At that time, he worked for Southern Tire Company. It's not a really clear photo and I wish he was looking up but it's so sweet.
LOTS of inks. I used a Kaisercraft Grunge Type cling stamp for the title and again used my Goodwill salvage truck tire to make the tire marks.
A while back, I had a local stamp store make a rubber Drip and Spatter stamp for me. Those with my toy tire and a Tim Holtz Crackle Stamp are pretty grungy. The type across the fence is also a grungy font, so intentionally worn and faded.
