It's time for another Grungy Monday...only it's Tuesday. Here is my entry into Studio L3's really fun and fantastic Grungy Monday Challenge. I love doing this challenge because it lets me get my "Tim" style on and play with all of his wonderful stamp, dies, inks and Ideaology stuff. The possibilities are endless!!
So, here is my tag using Tim's technique from The Twelve Tags of Christmas 2007, Day 8 for the background. I used a Terra Cotta Paint Dabber and then a combination of Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and a touch of Black Soot to finish the background.
Then I stamped the vintage camera "Photographic Studio" image from Tim's Captured Moments Stamp Set. I slit the top of the camera and made a ribbon from Tim's Filmstrip Ribbon coming from the top of the camera and winding its way down the side of the tag.
I used Tim's Mini Baroque die cut on a piece of chipboard and cream cardstock. I stamped a portion of the vintage photo image (with Walnut Stain) from Tim's Photo Studio Stamp Set. I distressed the background with Vintage Photo and a bit of Walnut Stain and just a hint of Dried Marmalade to pull in the orange from the background. I popped the image into place using pop dots.
Finally, I added some Tattered Flowers cut from basic cream cardstock and Kraft Glassine Papers. I heat embossed a script with white embossing powder on the Kraft Glassine flowers and went over the image with Vintage Photo. I then stamped a checkerboard pattern on the cream cardstock by multi inking the stamp with Dried Marmalade and Walnut Stain. I then inked the edges of the flowers with the browns and a touch of Black Soot.
I will be at SCRAPBOOK GENERATION in Springfield, MO this evening doing free demonstrations on EMBOSSING 101 from 6 to 8pm. If you're in the area, come on by and learn all about embossing powders, techniques and then have fun playing and experimenting!
I hope you are having a wonderfully creative GRUNGY day!
Take time to PLAY... it's SOUL FOOD!
