I can't believe a whole week has gone by since I last got inky fingers, but due to being called out five times in three nights plus working normal hours during the day, I have been in my own little twilight zone for the past week. I missed the first Grungy Monday (Sob!!! Sob!!!) but what wonderful art work can be seen over at the lovely Linda's Studio L3. This fab challenge is inspired by the work and products of the King of all things Grunge, the wonderful Tim Holtz . This weeks challenge involves a field trip to Ranger Ink to view one of Tims demo's, which shows a great way to use Distress Inks with Multi Medium.
Anyway, enough waffle, here is a tag that I am entering in this Grungy Monday No 2, Simon Says Stamp and Show Anything Except a Card, The Artistic Stamper monthly challenge, which is Layers, and this weeks Sunday Stamper, the theme of which is Gold.
The young lady peeping through the keyhole is off to Ms Francine's Prep School for the Arts, but in her dreams will be appearing at Covent Garden before too long(watch out Renee Fleming!).
My songstress has aspirations to sing like the bird at the top of the tag.
I've used Distress Inks in Faded Jeans and Vintage Photo for my background, tissue tape to cover my bird, an Ideology keyhole and a flower from a box of unidentifiable stash. The flourish is cut from Grunge paper, and inked with Vintage Photo, and lightly brushed with Inka Gold.
