Bloggers Challenge and Grungy Monday - Again!

Playing Linda's Grungy Monday on Friday with Lisa's Bloggers Challenge.  For GM14 we are using a dabber resist/Perfect Pearls technique from March 2008, which can be found here compliments of Mr. Tim Holtz!  Lisa, who also happens to be one our Grungy Monday inspiring guest designers, has us on a Floral Frenzy for this weeks Bloggers Challenge!  Now I started working on a couple of tags yesterday, but we had a couple of "house estimate" type distractions, so tag #2 will post later or tomorrow.  The story continues! 

All stamps are from Artistic Outpost the Flapper Fashions plate and will be entered in their July Referral Contest! Who does not like a chance at free stamps??
For this weeks GM14 technique I used the floral border, which was dabbered in snow cap paint.  I love the lacy effect this created.  I used it for part of the sentiment frame and on the tag top.  All edges were distressed and then shaded with Rusty Hinge.  BTW, I always shade/highlight black.  It really does show!  The store bought flowers where also shaded with RH as to tie it all in. Her hat has a little glitter pen color, just because!  The shimmer from the Perfect Pearls is so pretty and I wish you could see it, but I know you know what I mean!

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.  Wow, I have 198 followers and want to thank each of you for that!  Sometimes when I go to thank someone for leaving a lovely comment, I find there is no link.  Any suggestions??

Reinkers:  Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Tye Die
Perfect Pearls:  Pink Gumball, Biscotti, Perfect Gold

Great tag Terry and I love the "softness" of it - the colours contribute to this - it's peaceful to look at - I love it!

How fabulous. This is the stamp set I have my eyes on (along with The Great Gatsby). I was a Flapper in Paris in a previous life so this tag must be about me LOL.

Terry, your Grungy Monday/Floral Frenzy piece is magnificent! I love how you used the GM14 technique to create the border for your artwork. That's so clever, and it looks like antique brocade. It's gorgeous! You have, without a doubt, put on the Ritz!!!

I hope you're doing fantastically well and enjoying the long-awaited summer!
