This is my first Grungy Monday 39 Challenge from Studio L3. Every Monday a new challenge is presented based on a Tim Holtz technique. This past week's challenge was based on Tim's 2009 Christmas Tags plaid background technique.
Here is my first attempt of making a plaid background. It was so much fun to do, I see myself doing it again.
I learned how to ink my felt with the alcohol inks and then glide them over the glossy card stock. Then I stamped my "scratchy" background stamp, bicycle, and the verse.
I stamped and inked the clock and ticket. The clock is attached with a brad, while the ticket is stapled on with Tim's stapler. Then finished off with some silver beads on the side that I sanded the finish off of the top.
Simon Says Stamp is the sponsor of the challenge. They are a great company! I have found them to be awesome with their Tim Holtz inventory and I can always find what I'm looking for to do his projects.
Thanks for looking. It's not great, but it was fun to learn!
