I got this package of Tim Holtz Grunge Board at Tuesday Morning for about $0.50. Yes, they were having a super clearance with an extra 50% off of all clearance items. Ok, so I purchased this not knowing how to use it and it sat unused for some weeks. Then finally when I decided to make a configuration box, I started to watch a lot of tutorials on how to use this grunge board.

I wanted to make a project with a Steampunk or grunge look, and I loved the results of painting, distressing and inking these letters. Plus, what is better than being able to personalize something with a name or words with special meanings?

The following is a list of supplies I used:
1. Tim Holtz grunge board kit
2. Adhesive, my preferred is gel medium to prevent shininess or surfaces that resist ink or paint
3. Black acrylic paint
4. 220 grit sand paper
5. Tim Holtz Distress Ink or Marker in medium shade; I used brushed corduroy

This is a video tutorial of how to use these Tim Holtz Grunge Board letters:
