Grungy Monday Entry


The first challenge at Grungy Monday is to used Tim Holtz's Tag 2008 12 Tags of Christmas, Tag 10, as inspiration. This was a tricky one for me as I like to freestyle rather than follow step by step instructions so I hope I on the right track with this tag.


I didn't have all the Tim Holtz elements so had to improvise! I used the TH flourish mask and various distress inks to create the background. I used a fairy stamp and a TH crown stamp embossed and coloured with Perfect Pearls. I used a pressed stud as did Tim for the flower fixing. The FLY letters were taken from one the Seasonal Stack.

Emma, I love your wonderful tag, and how sweet that you made a Sparkly Fairy! The background is luscious, and you did a great job taking Tim's technique and giving them your own special style. Thank you so much for being part of Grungy Monday 1! I hope to see you again next week.
