Grungy Monday 09


I missed out on Grungy Monday 08; I'll try to get it made in a few days.
On this tag I followed Tim Holtz technique but changed the dabber colors. If you would like to try out this technique click here: http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/12/its-day-10---an.html
Join Linda over on Studio L3 with the details if you would like to share your card on your blog.
This was my first time to use this technique and these stamps from Tim's Wild West CMS-109.
Ink and dabber paint from Ranger.

Grungy Monday


 Linda from Studio L3 has posted one of Tim Holtz  technique "Distress Color Ink Blocking" as our Grungy Monday challenge. Here is the technique over on Ranger website: http://www.rangerink.com/videos/videos_timColorBlock.htm
For my challenge I used a variety of Distress Inks over my tag using a foam applicator. Over that I inked one of Tim Holtz "Papillon" images using Ranger Clear Resist and a Perfect Pearls; Blue Smoke. I inked the butterflies with black ink. Fibers from my stash was added to tag.
The tag has lots of sheen that is not seen in the photo.
Have a nice day!

Grungy Monday 06, Imagine

Linda from Studio L3 has all the details on her blog for this weeks Grungy Monday challenge from Tim's 12 tags of Christmas 2007, Day 8. I used the paint dabbers I had on hand for the background of this tag.
The supplies I used on this tag: Tim's cage, bird and tag dies, paint dabbers, alcohol inks, idea-olody parts, distress inks, foam with applicator and mini stapler.
I discovered by accident the beautiful colors on this cage. It's a combination of alcohol inks and dabber paints.

Non Tim's Supplies:
Viva Gold paint was used on the Philsolopy tag, fibers, beads and supplies on the bird cage.
