Bank Holiday Challenges

I love Bank Holiday Mondays!! That lovely feeling on a Sunday night when you know you haven’t got to get up in the morning, and waking up in the morning and remembering it’s a day off…and then knowing that you’ll only have to work four days..and then having loads more time to craft!! AND – I especially like it because it means I can enter Linda’s Grungy Monday Challenge over at Studio L3 actually on the day. This week Linda wants us to use Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas, 2007, Day 10. And so, my card -
I have used this technique before and loved it…then forgotten about it and this is why I love the Grungy Monday challenge as it takes us back. I used it on the bottom panel of the card with Judikins Italian Script Stamp, then stamped again on some cream card which I’d coloured with Antique Linen Distress stains for the top half.
The flower I made myself (am going to put together  tutorial I think so won’t go into it now). As well as SD532342Studio L3, I’m going to enter this over at Simon Says Stamp and Show where they want us to use our favourate stamps. This is my all time fav background stamp so hope that counts. I’ve used ingredients from one of the Recipe Bingo lines over at The Stamp Man – Embossing Powder (in the Tim Technique), Ribbon and homemade background paper so am entering there too.  Finally I’m entering into the Sentiment challenge at Stamp Something.
Right off to make the dinner…thanks for visiting..and don’t forget the Craft-Room Challenge launches tomorrow!!  Esther xx
