Grungy Monday at Studio L3

This week's Grungy Monday Challenge at Linda Ledbetter's Studio L 3 blog  is using Tim Holtz Perfect Distress Technique. There are already 32 entries posted, if you want to see them click here and it will take you straight to Linda's Grungy Monday 24 post. I enjoy seeing what everyone is working on. There are so many different ways you can use this technique.

Here's a quick run through of how I made my tag. The background has Broken China, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire with just a touch of Dusty Concord. I inked up the pine tree stamp from the Reindeer Flight stamp set with shabby shutters and antique linen and spritzed the stamp with water before stamping to get a water color effect. I tried to keep the colors light so the reindeer would show up better. Once th tag was dry, I stamped the reindeer in rusty hinge and then used Perfect Bronze. After heat setting spritzed a little water and then heat set.  Then I inked the snowflakes from Min Holidays CMS066 with distress embossing and applied Perfect Pearl. I only lightly misted the snowflake with water. Next I did just a little blending around the edges in spots with Broken China, Peeled Paint, Antique Linen and a little Walnut Stain. I also used a little Meadow alcohol ink with White mixative on the Believe metal tag, and a December calendar from the roll of tissue tape and a little ribbon. Love that tiny attacher which i used to attach the ribbon. I really enjoyed this technique and since all the supplies are out think I'll play a little more. Thanks for stopping by.

Ruby, this is absolutely gorgeous! This technique is so wonderful for holiday-themed art, and you've used it magnificently on the reindeer. It just glows! You chose your colors so wisely and did a great job with the GM challenge!
