grungy monday 4

  well this weeks challenge from linda ledbetter at studio L3   is all about texture fades and distress.
 I must admit this is another of Tim's techniques that I have not tried, there are so many on the web site Tim holtz
checkout the video to see how Tim does it

I decided to make a tag this week as I have just brought Tim's no8 tag for the bigshot. i was feeling a bit pink today, so pink it was.
 I inked up  the music folder with victorian velvet and dusty concord, it looks a bit dark in the photo., it actually quite light, for a change.
 I used the following products; birdcage and bird mover and shapers, kanban bird stamp, cosmic shimmer burnt red lustre embossing powder and papermania paper flowers. Tim Holtz fairytale alphabet.


  1. Lovely tag! The bird and bird cage go wonderfully with the Music BG!

  2. Beautiful tag! Love your music background. I haven't used my little bird yet...Cheers..Donna

  3. Beautiful tag Janet... love those gorgeous colors together...
