Grungy Monday 08



Good afternoon from England to all my bloggy visitors today. Phew what horrid weather we are having here in the NW all weekend it's been dreadful. But Grunge Monday at Linda's is always there to put a smile on the face :0) Yes it's another week of the challenge that so many of us have a go at. And we are using another of Tim Holtz techniques from 2008 so click to have a look.


Here is a close up, I have used some Stampin' Up! & Sweet & Sassy Stamps to create this little tag/topper? I haven't decided yet. But it did get me thinking that you can make up a few of these ready to pop on a card or even a journal page etc just nice little extra ready to glue in place if you haven't a lot of time but still completely hand made original just from you. Have a go and stop by this grate challenge blog to get all the details. Love Dawn xx

What a sweet and gorgeous card, Dawn! I love the dramatic look you got using the highly textured watercolor paper, and the color blending is amazing! Great stamp choices, and the colors are fabulous!

It's wonderful to see you, my dear, and I'm so glad you enjoyed the GM08 challenge. I hope the weather improves.
