Grungy Monday #11...

Posted by Picasa
Well I finally got time to join in the challenge this week. For the
details on this go and visit Linda's blog. The technique we are
using this week can be found on Tim Holtz's blog, it is from
January 2008.

I had no problems with the first part of this technique but then it
got tricky, anything that involves an iron is always bad news for
me! I followed the instructions but had an issue with the newsprint
paper sticking to my stamped image. I managed to scrape off
most of the paper and actually don't think you can see it, well I hope not anyway!
I do not have a lot of quote stamps so have to keep taking turns
with the few I have, I also used some of the newer tissue
tape at the top. I love the tissue tape except for the fact that this
new batch has no sticky stuff on it and I had to glue it down with
a tape runner. Anyway my tag is done and I can get ready now
for our family vacation next week.

Love the tag, and the quote. For someone who is limited in quote stamps, you do have a lovely collection of all the right things to say! xo
