Grungy Monday.....

Morning peeps hope you are all well, firstly  abig thank you for your inspirational comments they make crafting so worthwhile and inspire me to continue......Todays tag is for Grungy Monday over at Lindas, the challenge this week is called 'Distress Ink-o-rama', if you click here you will be taken to Tim Holtz for some tutorials, I thought I'd get mine posted before Sunday this week as I'm ussually entering at the last minute, there are some really great entries again this week, I'm having trouble with the colour fading on my tags .......I think it may be the tag as they seem quite shiny and the colour of the distress inks seem to fade to very pale, I never seem to be able to get the intense colours that others seem to, so here is my pale coloured tag, I did use Bundled sage, Old Paper, Dusty Concord and Tea Dye, I've used an embossing folder down part of the tag and at the bottom, the car stamp is from The Ewardian plate by Elusive Images, the clock I embossed in Tea Dye and then added rock candy stickles to the face for bling.......the clock face not mine, although.........nooooo!! The sentiment is from Spellbinders, and the image of the man is from Crafty Individuals, I melted some wax in the bottle cap with my heat gun, and then melted some more over the image, added a dusting of Gold Perfect Pearls to finish.

This is beautiful, Daniele! I love those soft colors-- they really give a pretty vintage feel to the piece, and the design is just great! LOVE that bottle cap with the photo inside.

This is probably a silly question, but have you re-inked your stamp pads lately? I only ask because I often forget to do it and then spend a couple of weeks wondering why my colors look faded.

LuLu said...

Great vintage styled tag and love how you created it too. Many thanks for joining in with Polka doodls Challenge this week.
