Grungy Monday #1...



Oh Studio L3 how I have missed you!! it has only been a few weeks
but having a new challenge to look forward to every Monday was
just so much fun.
In case you have no idea what I am talking about you need to head
over to Linda's blog to see what is going on. Linda has decided she
missed us all so much she wanted to start another challenge. Linda
contacted Tim Holtz and we are now doing challenges based on his
techniques and products. Not sure if there is a time limit on this
new challenge but I am happy that we have a new one to work on.

So this challenge is based on the techniques used in one of the
12 Tags of Christmas for 2008. I did do all of the techniques
required but changed some of the embellishments used to what
I thought went with my main part, a fabulous stamp from
Graphic 45 that I had been trying to get for ages. Finally found
it on www.etsy.com. I am really happy with the way this turned
out and cannot wait to see what everyone else is doing.
