Grungy Monday 24 - Perfect Distress

I Know - I missed one. Life has been getting in the way recently and I managed to miss a Studiol3 challenge - I'm disappointed as I've done all the others but hey ho... here's the next creation inspired by the Tim Holtz  Perfect Distress technique:

It's a terrible photo but it's late and I'll be out all day tomorrow and didn't want to miss another week - I'm in the middle of working at a Weekend Craft Retreat from the Stamp Pad and it will be another early morning tomorrow so it will have to do. I've used the new Limited Edition Distress Inks on my tag - Seedless Preserves to colour the tag, Ripe Persimmon to colour the pumpkin, tissue tape and Kraft Resist pieces and Gathered Twigs to stamp with and ink the edges. I've used heirloom gold Perfect Pearls over the stamping and inked the grungeboard bats with Black Soot Distress Stain. Must dash, my bed is calling me - hope there aren't too many mistakes in here - I can barely keep my eyes open! Enjoy the rest of your weekend. JulieD X


  1. Great spooky tag, the kraft resist looks fab!

  2. I love it. I couldn't get a good shot either so don't panic. It is super anyway.

  3. Sounds like you have some wonderful things going on in your life, Julie, and I'm glad you were able to fit in the challenge! Don't feel bad about missing last week-- you can always go back and do the technique just for the enjoyment of it when you have more time!

    As for this week's challenge, you did a fabulous job on the Perfect Distress! The vintage imagery is awesome, and every little detail is excellent! I love what you created!
