Grungy Monday 26 and Sunday Stampers

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by.....Today I managed to complete the Grungy Munday challenge 26 of Tims 12 tags of Christmas which can be found here:  http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/12/12-tags-of-christmasday-7.html and i am also entering this into Sunday Stamper. As Hels wanted something a little Christmassy i decided to try and follow all of the techniques used in Tim Holtz's demo and stuck with the Christmassy theme with different stamps. (only cause i never had the ones he used !!!) Anyway it was great making this tag...... I put to use some of the techniques that i learned with Linda Elbourne at her ranger master class which was fab.  I had a bit of a nightmare though with the stamping of the sentiment as i did'nt have a "Merry Christmas" stamp (can you believe that!! I have hundreds of Stamps but no Merry Christmas will need to rectify that me thinks.....) Any way i thought i would use a noel stamp by magnolia so stamped it up in distress emboss and then as i only had a red lustre embossing powder i used that ..............yes well the less said about that the better i think!!! Hence why you are seeing a nice bright noel stamped up in snowcap dabber on some of the glassine paper!!!  Apart from the galsine paper i think the tag turned out quite well.......what do you think ? Anyway enough of me rambling i am sure you want to see the tag .....well here it is......What do you think ........

Feel free to leave a comment i love to hear from you ..... thats all from me as i don't think i will have time to enter Simon Says Stamp and show this week ......oh well there is always next week......bye for now .....catch up with you soon. Mandy x
