Grungy Monday!

Linda has us dabbling with Perfect Distress and you can watch Tim's video here.  Not only will you have fun playing with this amazing medium, but there is a little treat thing happening, thanks to the ever so sweet GM Mom!  Well you have to go see! 

I inked a tag background using shades of orange Distress Inks!  I then inked the Owl with Vintage Photo and proceeded with the green/brown Perfect Pearls, brown for the owl and green for the flourish/leaf part.  Not sure if you can see the two colors, but the owl is darker and more brown.  Gave a quick spray, the first time I was too heavy with the water and lost too much details.  Maybe it is suppose to be that way, but I did not care for it.  You can always add more water!  I had a piece of cocoa card stock, so decided to add the dripping trim (MS-punch), inked over that and added more Perfect Pearls.  I cut a second tag, and trimmed the first to fit.  Did a little embossing at the top and a little ticket, which I used Perfect Medium and then added the Perfect Pearls.  The feather was gifted to me, by my Fred! 
 Well hope you all are off to a Grungy start for this week!  Thank you for stopping by!

Fantastic tag Terry, love that grungy feel, it looks as if it's been taken out of one of those old books, stashed away in one of those old monastery libraries! WoW!

Terry, I've had this stamp forever and have never figured out quite how to use it. Now I see its full potential. This is such a cool tag! I love the antiqued look you created with the Perfect Distress, and that border is just perfect! Cool embossing, great embellishments-- perfection!!!
