It's already Grungy Monday Number 15, and I am still hopelessly behind, but thought I'd just dive right in with this weeks challenge, full details of which may be found over at the lovely Linda's blog Studio L3. Here you can see fabulous examples made by Linda and the two Guest Designers for this week, Barbara and Rinda.
The technique this week is from one of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas 2007, and full instructions can be found over at his blog
It's all about making a rusty effect this week.
I am one of those people who don't read instructions right through to the end before I start something (anything from Ikea always has not enough of something, or stuff left over at the end when I think my new bookshelf is done only to find it's actually the thing that holds it all together that I still have left). I truly wish I had read the instructions to the end, because I had a lot of embossing powder flying around in a very messy way as I made my tag.
Now I need to have another go at cleaning up the dreaded embossing powder, because although I thought it was all gone it seems to keep appearing all over my desk as if by magic.
