Welcome Grungy Monday!!


Yahoo!! With the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge finished, Linda at Studio L3 has started Grungy Monday's! Celebrating the techniques of Tim Holtz!

So, week #1: the 10th tag from Tim's "12 Tags of Christmas-2008" This is the first of these tags I have attempted--and I have to say; I have a whole new respect for all of you that have followed Tim and gotten them done-even if not daily, but by the end of December! This one didn't look as involved as some others-but it was a two-night affair! (To see the work process-visit my previous WOYWW post! LOL!)


I cut a mask of the Elegant Flourishes die (and what a mess that step was-Eclipse Masking Paper not so good w/detailed dies I guess), and used the wild honey re-inker for my mist. (the top flower was hit with the same mist mixture-funny how that was so yellow, and the tag so nice and orangey!) I edged with Barn Door DI. The butterfly (Penny Black) was hit with copper pp's (and yes Tracey--that was one cool step!) The letters are from Hampton Art, and after stamping with Rusty Hinge DI, I dusted them with copper p's-not that you can see the shimmer here. And I KNOW! I have a stamp somewhere with an english poem about the butterfly that flutters by---(and wheren't they originally called flutterbys?) but I can't find it.


So now, hop over to Linda's to see the details, and check out everyone else's Grungy Monday work-you still have time to dive right in! Have a great weekend all--and if your in the North East--buckle down for our 16 inch plus of snow coming in on the Nor'easter storm coming in for April Fools! (yea, no fools there-bummer!)
