Well, it’s late Friday night and I have completed my project for the Grungy Monday Challenge, once again Ms. Ledbetter at L3 has dug deep into the bag of tricks and pulled out a challenge that was originally posted in September of 2008 by Tim Holtz. The tutorial for this week’s challenge can be seen by clicking this link. Click here
I have to say, I was not feeling this challenge at all. I don’t have Adirondack Inks, I don’t have sentiment stamps and the last time I dabbled in watercolors was back in ’81 in the required college art class with the Dean of the department, who did not mark lower than 3.0 as long you tried.
So this challenge really stumped me. I had nothing. I messed around with some stamps. Tried different inks and paper combinations and finally achieved an image that started to talk to me. (more like a whisper and pictured below)
Anyway once things got rolling I inked the background and repeated the imaged on a ATC. Sewed the ATC to the card (a first) and found the love quote online by none other than Edgar Allen Poe.
All in all, I am very happy with the way this tag turned out and glad that I did not take a pass on this week’s challenge.
Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.
