Grungy Monday 1 : Play Time!

And here we go with Linda's new challenge over on Studio L3 - Grungy Monday.  I was sad to miss the last couple of weeks of the Compendium of Curiorisites Challenge due to being on holiday, but great to start a whole new set of challenges.  Click on the Studio L3 link to find out more!

The challenge is still based on the great Tim Holtz techniques, but might be anything from a video on his website, techniques from Compendium of Curiosities ................. you get my gist.  So Grungy Monday No. 1 is:

12 Tags of Christmas 2008 Tag No. 10

Click the link  above to see this stunning tag.  The challenge is about being inspired by the technique, so I did the tutorial and here is my take on the tag.

I must admit I don't have much in the way of Distress Reinkers so my background was blended and then misted with a Perfect Pearls spray.  And I'm glad at last to have used the lovely stamp from Crafty Individuals. 

I couldn't resist adding in the "Play" ticket as it was so much fun making this tag and also taking part in all these wonderful challenges.

Thanks again to Linda for starting yet another challenge for us all.

Hello, dear Jennie! It's so great to see you at Grungy Monday. You did a spectacular job on this challenge, too. The perfect example of "using what you've got" to create something brilliant. I love the layers of interesting paper and imagery, and the soft colors are lovely.

Yay! Can't wait to see more GM art from you!
