Grungy Monday #13 The Journey


Linda from Studio L3 selected this week's video; http://www.rangerink.com/videos/videos_tim_alcoholinks.htm  for Grungy Monday #13.
For my GM-13 card I used two of Tim's stamps, his clock die, his distress ink, Ranger's archival black ink and Ranger's Alcohol inks.
The inside of the clock was alcohol inked and stamped with bird image.
The clock die was cut with a piece of heavy duty file folder. The file folder was so dense that I had to run the clock die through the Vagabond machine four times. Isn't the color on the clock gorgeous. You might not can tell but the die cut has a marble finish. All I did was add a little bit of distress ink to the edges using brushed corduroy. The clock hands were distress with the brushed corduroy as well.
I used 3-D Zots to apply the clock to the base of card. Finished card: 4 5/8" x 6"
My daughter has an antique shop in Arkansas City, KS; she deals in antiques and vintage. From a recent auction she gave me a bundle of heavy duty file folders to use with my die cuts.
 I'm a happy camper with all these new things to play with.

Button Tag

A border of ribbon was applied around the dusty concord distress stain tag. To further distress; I used Tim's mini sander.
Stamped image was inked on glossy cardstock with archival sepia ink and watercolor with watercolor crayons, adhere to black matte and then applied to tag.
The word perfection was inked to my new die cut and distress edges using (wild honey) distress ink.
The cuttlebug butterfly was cut with grungeboard and stained with distress wild honey distress stain. Bling was added to the body of the butterfly. Buttons were added to the base of the tag and on mini-rosette flower die cut. Fibers added to finish.

Grungy Monday 10


Here is my Grungy Monday 10 using Tim Holtz distress ink; this was a fun tag to make using many of his new dies along with stamp from my stash. A while back I shared a tag using a time card, here is another tag using a time card; although this one is solid with no holes. I love using these cards with my tag die and stamping supplies. I used a total of 7 dies with this tag.
The distress inks used on tag were Forest Moss, Wild Honey and Blue Sapphire. Archival Black on stamped images.
The bird was inked with black archival using a fun foam stamp made from Tim's die.
The mini rosette was made with gold envelope and then added a B from the new typeset die.
The little word tag on top is from a new die tiny tabs and tag
The twigs from his new on the edge
 The tag die from Tim's tag and bookplates die.
And to make it stand I added the easel. I love my easel die; it's perfect for displaying tags.

Have aa nice day!!
