A Grungy Kind of Love...

...The Grungy Monday Challenge, hosted by the luverly Linda Ledbetter, this week has the theme LOVE. If you haven't seen the challenge before, do head on over HERE... it is a brill challenge, focussing on techniques from Tim Holtz and... it gets better because this week Simon Says Stamp are sponsoring the challenge! Cool huh? Speaking of Simon Says Stamp.. this week on the Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge the theme is Anything Goes... so... I am entering this tag into that too :O))


The tag is a simple quicky one... I have had the new Mini Tattered Florals Movers & Shapers for a month now and apart from making one rose, I haven't done anything else with it... so I was itching to have a play... and being as the theme is love, I used some papers from the Shabby Vintage paper stack to cover the tag and to make the roses.




The tag paper is the grey one from the stack and I edged it with Aged Mahogany DI... and then sanded the edges... which is what I did with the roses too... forgot to say that lol I used some of the diamond patterned paper, cutting into it and then popping this across the bottom of the tag and then colouring some Trim with Victorian Velvet Stain and I added a few little brads to the middles of the flowers. I bobbed a piece of Film Strip under the roses to make a little banner... I like the extra texture that this adds to the tag.




Super speedy post from me today... I have some stuff to list on eBay and it isn't listing itself... thanks for looking... hope you having a grand day ... TTFN!

Coo, this is very pretty and delicately pink, Hels - I was going to say not like you but that sounds very rude which is not what I meant so I won't say it... ooops better shut up! I love it!
I got the mini rose die at Stevenage (missed you!) but haven't used it yet. Have a great weekend, did I see you're off to Stitches?

Hels...your tag is so stunning! Girl, you are the QUEEN of making flowers!! Yours are the prettiest I think I've ever seen. I love the background color of your tag. And flowers are perfect on this tag! I love the spots of black that you've added to the background. Makes the pink even that much more luscious! I also love the way you've twisted the film strip ribbon and added the pins. BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for sharing your talent with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show! <3 Candy
