I've not blogged for a full week - after my promise to myself to try and do a bit every day - life just got in the way! Anyway, today I've done my first Grungy Monday challenge which is being run by Linda at Studio L3 (www.studioL3.com ) - as I only set my blog up two weeks ago, I've never been involved in one of these challenges before so I missed the Compendium of Curiosities challenge - I think I might do it on my own, just for fun!!
Here's my take on the challenge - it's based on Tag 10 from the 12 Tags of Christmas 2008 Challenge (www.timholtz.com ) and I've followed the format of Tim's original one fairly closely but lost the Christmas theme. I used Barndoor Reinker and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls to spritz over the mask then used a variety of other Distress Ink Pads which I've blended with the applicator (Wild Honey, Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo and Black Soot - I think that was all of them).
The letters are die cut grungeboard which I've embossed using the Brick Alterations embossing folder and coloured with Wild Honey and Black Soot. I've also coloured the Trinket Pin and the heart charm with Alcohol Inks.
I enjoyed that, think I'm gonna like this weekly challenge ...
