I've finally found time to enter Linda's Grungy Monday challenge ... having gained an extra hour in my day today, due to being woken by a naughty cat at 5.30 (trust me ... he's not so cute when he's pulling the carpet outside my door!) and decided to use the time to make my tag.
The challenge this week was to use Tim Holtz's Distress Colour Ink Blocking technique.
I inked the background using the technique and then spritzed it with water and removed some of the ink to soften the effect. I stamped the music on the side with a Versamark ink pad and painted violet mica powder over it.
The birds and nest are from the Artful Flight CMS 069 set and the sentiment from Stuff to Say CMS110.
I sprayed the lace lightly with Dylusions inks and added a stitched heart button and fibres. Not a bad job just as the kids start to emerge for breakfast ... must diary another 5.30 slot!!
