GRUNGY MONDAY 26
The Challenge Linda at Studio L3 this week is to use Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas 2009, Day 7 as our inspiration. Go here to watch the video. I have made a Christmas card using Tim's techniques. Silly me chose to make my stencil with this bird and holly stamp from SU ( It took forever to cut out). The snowflake and greeting are also from SU. The music is from River City Rubber Works and the Scroll came from my winnings from Ali Manning. I have used Ranger TH distress inks - broken china, faded jeans and tumbled glass for the front piece and the background piece. I used SU punches for the snowflakes and tag. Card stock, watercolor pencils, stencil material and ribbon are from my stash. Originally I had coated the bird with Ranger Matte accents but when I was trimming the card front, part of the wing pulled off on the cutter. To save the card I stamped and colored the bird with faded jeans, cut it out and mounted on top of the injured one. I also had to make a new tag because I couldn't find the first one. Seems to be how my day is going.
I am still avoiding the computer but will visit when I can. Have a great day! Thank you for looking!
