Apply Mini Mask to front cover of 8-inch x 8-inch album.
Tap Ink Blending Tool on to Distress Ink™ Pad.
Using Ink tool, dab and swipe the ink over the mask being careful not to remove the mask. (Tip: you may want to hold the mask down with your finger when inking.)
Repeat inking the entire album cover, re-inking the Ink Blending Tool as needed.
With mask still in place, ink stamp with Jet Black Archival™ Ink.
Stamp over the mask on to the album cover.
Repeat above steps until the entire album cover is stamped. (Tip: re-ink the stamp for each image.)
Carefully remove the mask to reveal design, wipe clean and return to storage sheet.
Remove letters from Grungeboard™ Alpha pack and place on Non-Stick Craft Sheet™.
Paint largest ones with Distress Crackle Paint™ and allow to dry and crackle.
Remove excess Crackle Paint with your finger and ink with Distress Inks™ using Ink Blending Tool.
Paint smaller letters with Adirondack® Paint Dabber™ and let dry.
Remove elements from Grungeboard™ Elements Pack. Paint elements with Paint Dabber™ or Distress Ink ™ colors and let dry.
Scuff colored Grungeboard™ Elements with Sanding Grip to remove some of the color and expose the raw Grungeboard™ in areas.
Ink over sanded pieces with brown Distress Ink™ using Ink Blending Tool.
Apply Distress Stickles™ to your finger and rub over Grungeboard™ Elements. Let dry completely.
Insert mini brads through holes of Grungeboard™ and idea-ology™ embellishments.
Place on to Hammer Mat and tap with bump tip of Texture Hammer™ to dent brads.
Adhere all Grungeboard™ pieces to front cover of album using Glossy Accents™. (Tip: for Grungeboard™ hinge placement, position Design Ruler along the spine of the album. Using the centering edge of the ruler, position the hinges approximately 1-2 inches from each end of the album for perfect placement and adhere to the front and back covers of the album, not on the spine - remember Grungeboard™ is completely flexible.)
Attach all idea-ology™ embellishments with Glossy Accents™. Let dry.
Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.
To add a distressed look to your Grungeboard™ Alphas use Ranger Distress Crackle Paint™.
