Grungy Monday #3 color wash, SSSand Show Distressing
Another week has gone by and I'm rushing to get my tag done for the Grungy Monday challenge over at StudioL3. This week Linda wants us to use the new Adirondack Color Wash another fabulous product by the master himself Tim Holtz here's the link to his blog http://timholtz.typepad.com. I sponged various colors of DI's all over the tag ,spritzed with water ,dried with heat tool and then stamped my image which a new Penny Black slapstick stamp that I purchased recently . The flower I made with a daisy punch and misted with homemade glimmer mist (vintage photo,heirloom gold and water).I colored the little flowers on the image with DI Victorian Velvet ,added some liquid pearls to the center and around the circle.I used Stream color wash to dye the gathered ribbon--well it's not actually ribbon it's some ribbon gauze that I found in my stash . It took the color wash perfectly.I also sprayed the butterfly with the color wash and then patted it with paper towel to give it a softer color. I think I'm going to like working with this product LOL. I distressed the edges with paper distresser and inked with walnut stain DI.
Thanks for looking .
