Grungy Monday--week5

'A New Dimension'   is the challenge set by Linda over at StudioL3   this week. There are some fabulous pieces by the DT .
We can get all the information on how to do this  here,  at   The May Technque Challenge over on Tim Holtz 's inspirational blog. 
Once again I had to improvise as my foam pieces have gone walk about. Not to be detered,  I cut up an old computer mouse mat that was still lurking in the 'might come in useful'  cupboard.  The leaf is a broken broach, from a charity shop, coloured with red pepper alcohol ink. The heart is a Tim Holtz die, coloured with distress inks and metalic paint for the crown and wings.The papers I have had a while, I used a script stamp in places, but it has faded into the background.
Thankyou for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.

  7. It's fabulous Yvonne! Now why didn't I think of using an old mouse mat (I have several too). I did have some funky foam but that's a bit floppy so resorted to the rigid mountboard. Love how your piece has turned out - truly altered art!

  14. Oh this is such a pretty card. The heart seems to guard the leaf that is imbedded in the little box.
