A Bit of Resistance

It's great to have been on holiday, but it's really nice to be at home and on a very wet and windy midsummer day I have the perfect excuse to stay in and play with ink and paint. I've used some of my favorite Artistic Outpost stamps to make this tag, and the technique is one which can be found over at Tim Holtz's fabulous blog, which is always full of lovely stuff to look at. 


It seems like ages since I've joined in with Grungy Monday, and I can't believe that we are already on number 12, but as it's only Tuesday today, maybe I can catch up with a few of the challenges I've missed during the next week.  Go and have a look at the beautiful design team pieces by Alison, Linda, and Linda over at Studio L3.



This week Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Metal, so it's two for one with this tag, though why do I always feel like I should really make two completely different things? 
Anyway, I must now go out in the rain and rescue my Sweet Peas, which have not only got seriously beaten up by the rain, but some of the canes have now pulled out of the ground in the stormy weather.
