Grungy Monday 7 - Colour Blocking

This week on the Grungy Monday challenge on StudioL3, we were given the task of creating something using a colour blocking technique demoed by Tim Holtz using a blending tool and various shades of distress ink. I've created another tag:

I collected together my green shades of distress inks and with plenty of ink on the blending tool, made rectangles of colour on the tag. I felt it was a bit harsh with the clear lines between the shades so I did cheat a bit and did a quick blend over the whole tag when I'd finished with a pale shade!! The stamping is done using archival library green and coffee with stamps from the Visual Artistry set 'Flights of Fancy'. The bird, tall flowers and letters are die cut grungeboard. Just a short post today, I'm off to help on The Stamp Pad stall at the Local Produce Day at my daughters' school! Enjoy! JulieD


  1. Such a cool tag! I love it! x

  2. Wonderful design - such an array of colour, layers and textures - the wings look great! The softer feel works well for your tag...I blended mine too...
