Grungy Monday No 2

I made this hanging for the Grungy Monday No 2 challenge over at Studio L3. The challenge was to use Studio Multi Medium as a resist. You can see the technique here at Ranger
I started of with a 5"x5" piece of mountboard and I covered it with a page from a book. I didn't have any foam to make a stamp so I used a grungeboard cotton reel and button die cut from the sewing room Sizzix Alterations die, I used the die cuts later as embellishments. I coloured the hanging with various Distress inks, added some material and lace at the bottom, the die cut dress form from the Alterations die down one side and some tape measure ribbon down the other side, then added other bits and bobs. I don't know who makes the word stamp that I used on the dress form, but the other stamped images are by Crafty Secrets.
The Distress inks that I used are dusty concord, shabby shutters, dried marigold, mustard seed, milled lavender and rusty hinge.
I'm also entering this in the Simon Says  stamp and show anything but a card challenge.
