Bags and Tags go Grungy on Monday!

Our lovely Grungy Monday leader, Linda, along with sidekicks, Barbara Washington and Rinda Ontiveros, have us using a technique from the 12 Tags of Christmas 2007, Day 7!  Gingersnap Creation's challenge GC107 is Bags and Tags, with shopping in mind!  Well we are off to the dressmaker!!  After all there was a time that I made most of my clothes, so this just seemed very appropriate.  Simon Says Stamp and Show some Stitching - Faux or Otherwise, and I had stitiched the little tag.  The Color of Summer wants us to use Brown and a Bold color, so I decided my bold would be "Pink" and based around the hand dyed lace that the wonderful Lynne of Adorn sent to me.


All stamps and die cuts are by the one and only Tim Holtz . I die cut shrink plastic using the dressmaker and stamped it using a variety of Tim's stamps.  For the tag I used a technique from the Technique Junkies called "Cuttlebug Highlights."  The dress form, spool and buttons, were stamped and shaded using Stazon.  All other inks and embossing powder are from the man!

Hope you all are having a fun and creative Monday, Grungy or not!  Oh I guess blogger is still not well for some of us.  My followers have disappeared from my page and of course commenting is still a pain.  Links are working for some people and it goes on!  Thank you for taking the time to visit!  Really do love that!

Your shrink plastic is awesome! I love your tag and all the elements. That was so sweet of Lynne. Were your ears burning today as Brenda and I were saying nice things about you. Funnily enough I was showing Brenda a shrink plastic mannequin cut from the Tim die and I actually thought I could use the shrunk one as a template on shrink plastic to make an even smaller one!! We really must fix up your play date here,
