Yeay! Grungy Monday is Back - No. 22

Hello Peeps

I am soooo happy that the Lovely Linda at 3Ls is back with the Grungy Monday.  I cannot believe that I missed it! 

This week Linda chose the theme of Hallowe'en and told us we were to make something using any Tim Holtz products and techniques which we wanted to.  As I have recently bought the lovely Rosette die, I just had to incorporate it into the project.  So without further ado this is what I got inky with for Hallowe'en.....

I used a 7x5 canvas board which I sprayed with the colours I made on THIS project.  I really liked these colours and they show up so well on a white background and sparkle beautifully.  I cut out two rosettes using orange and purple co-ordinations papers and stamped them with my lovely TH Flourish stamp.  I made some Lotions labels using my Silhouette machine and also cut some TH Flourishes using another new die.  Punching some small circles I stamped some simple words and also cut some bats out with a Sizzix die.  I clear embossed the bats and the flourishes, stamped some images on the base before adhereing the bats, flourishes, labels, rosettes.  I punched some holes for the wires, twiddled some wire and added some funky fibres. 

I hope you like what I have done and if you wish to see the Master Tim Holtz at work, then click HERE to be whisked by magic to his blog. 

Please don't forget to leave me a comment.  Off to check on the Sloe Gin which I made today.  What a beautiful day it was to go out picking sloes.  I believe we are heading to colder weather as of tomorrow but at least I got to enjoy it with Hubby and Dobby on a lovely long walk.  I think I might just have a sip of last year's Sloe Gin whilst watching a little Downton Abbey.
