Grungy Monday1

Yipee a new weekly challenge for us set by Linda over at Studio L3.  "Grungy Monday" indulges us with our love of Tim Holtz, the Master of all things grungy. We are directed to Tim's website http://www.timholtz.com/ to look at how Tag10 of the 2008, 12 tags of Christmas was made.  We are to follow these techniques to create out tag.
As I am currently  away in the caravan, with our sons keeping the home fires burning, the supplies I have with me are a bit limited. I aimed for a shabby chic look, the actual tag is a liitle darker than the photo.
The colours are antique linen, shabby shutters and vintage photo, a dark green embossing powder and gold mica powder. When my OH saw the mister come out I was ushered outside, as he knows well the mess I can create with this tiny item. so needless to say, as it was quite windy most of the spray went over me, but hey, whats  a few splodges and sparkles in the name of craft for.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I hope you will go over to Lindas to see the gorgeous examples.
