Grungy Monday 5 : A New Dimension

.


Linda over at Studio L3 has chosen for this week's Grungy Monday Challenge ..... a "cool dimensional art technique" from Tim's May 2008 Technique Challenge.  You can find the link to the technique here.  Do click the link for Linda's blog as she and her design team have created some incredible pieces and I am amazed how everyone has interpreted this technique so differently, so do check out the challenge submissions too.

I have just got these wonderful new stamps designed by Sue Jenneys at the Artstic Stamper - DANCE!  So I had to have a play with them.  However, I didn't have any of the foam used in the technique video so found a very thick piece of heavy card and used that instead.  It was a bit fiddly making sure everything was in the right place! 


Thank you Linda for another wonderful challenge.  And thank heavens you gave us two weeks for this challenge.  Hectic is not the word for my life over the last two weeks - "mental" would probably be more appropriate!  A Craft Fair, setting up the Shetland Guild of Spinners & Weavers summer exhibition of vintage knitted lace and ganseys, spinning demonstrations, digging over a new vegetable plot, pricking out 300 seedlings ..... I just long for next week which I hope will be more peaceful and time for some more crafting.

Your tag is lovely. The beautiful blues and greens blend so well. The dancer is perfect with the saying.

This is wonderful. Love that you used a quote in the dimensional part instead of an object! How clever is that? :) The rose is lovely too. I really like this, I might have to "lift" this for my daughter. May I?
