Grungy Monday #27

We just love Grungy Monday and for some of us, it can fall on any day of the week!  This was actually finished yesterday, but by the time my stickles dried, it was kind of dark!  So here is the scoop!  Linda has brought us to Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas, 2007, Day 6 and of course we can do whatever our little hearts desire, as long as we use the same techniques!  This really is prettier in person as you can't see the shimmer or sparkle very well.

I cut my snowflake masks from Tim's Winder Wonder die, along with the Snowman.  Stormy Sky reinker and Perfect Pearls Pewter were used for my misting mix.  The On The Edge Snowflake border and Snowman were cut from white chipboard and then painted with Delta's Pearl Gleams, a quick spray of the PP mix.  The snowflake stamps (Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky) are from Mr. Tim.  Added a coat of Rock Candy Crackle to the Snowflake border and then another coat of paint.  We finished off with some Ice Stickles for the Snowman Hat and tops of the Snowflake border.  Distressed paper edges with Faded Jeans.  The "Joy" word once cut out of the Snowman was given an extra painting of the PP mix and Delta's Pearl Gleams paint. 

Have a wonderful rest of the week and thanks a bunch for stopping by!
