The current challenge set by Linda on her blog Studio:L3 is to create something using the technique in Tim Holtz' book Compendium of Curiosities, page 33 he calls 'wrinkle free distress' which without going into detail is basically playing about with Distress Inks and a Craft Mat.
Here's a couple of work in progress photos which show the colours of Distress Ink I used for my two large tags.
I went for a Paris theme and the two rubber stamps I used were The Eiffel Tower (554J) by Auntie Amy and Paris Socialite (80436) by Stamps Happen
I also used an unmounted butterfly/Paris postage stamp from Crafty Individuals (got a bit carried away with stamping that on the purple one!)
They're not exactly Paris chic, more Paris grunge but that's quite fitting I suppose for the King of Grunge our craft lord and master Tim Holtz!
If you hop on over to Linda's blog you'll find links to lots of other examples of this technique as well as details of some fantastic prize giveaways!
Thanks for looking .... or should that be
'Merci pour le regard'
(thanks Yahoo translator - lol)
