Grungy Monday - A Whole Lotta Tim Holtz

Good Evening Peeps

I hope you are all having a fabulous and Spooktacular Hallowe'en Weekend!  Don't forget we have an extra hour tonight.  In the case of most crafters I expect most will use it to have an extra crafting hour.  Unfortunately for me I will be tucked up in bed as I am a little under the weather with a chest infection!!  Yuk!!

To give me a little R&R I spent an hour in my Craft Room today so that I could take part in the Grungy Monday Challenge.  The lovely LINDA sent us HERE where we watched the Master of Distress Tim Holtz showing us a fabulous technique with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls.

Here is mine....


I have to admit, this is actually the second attempt.  The first attempt got sent to File 13 (aka bin) because I tried to stamp the design with different colours but it didn't look good so never mind.  I am afraid that this photo does not show the brilliance of the Perfect Pearls but I can assure you that in real life they are awesome!
Happy Stamping and have a Great Weekend.

Hettie

Awesome in the photo too Sam! I love the sentiment as well - one day, one day I'll try joining in Grungy Monday! I have the ingredients (mostly) but not the bravery :)) Have a great day and hope that chest infection soon improves. Di xx

Happy Hallowe'en, Hettie! I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well, and I hope you're 100% better right away!

Your Perfect Distress tag is sensational! Beautiful colors-- it looks like an agate!-- and the embellishments are sweet and just right. I'm so glad you joined the GM24 challenge and look forward to seeing you next week!
