Challenge Entry: Grungy Monday 08

I've skipped a couple Grungy Mondays, but I thought I'd give Grungy Monday 08's technique a try.  The biggest challenge I had was sorting through my stamp collection to find a suitable image.  I finally landed on an "oldie but goodie", Stampin' Up!'s Terrific Tulips.  The set is a layer set which was fun to play with using Tim's watercolor technique.  I'm pretty happy with the results!

You can view Tim's tutorial HERE.

: SU! card stock ‘Rose Red’, ‘Naturals White’; watercolor paper
Stamps: SU! ‘Terrific Tulips’, ‘Friend to Friend’, ‘Checkerboard’
Inks: Distress Ink ‘Barn Red’, ‘Tattered Rose’, ‘Crushed Olive’, ‘Stormy Sky’, ‘Broken China’; StazOn ‘Jet Black’; Versamark
Embellishments: PTI rustic button twine; button
Tools: Mini Mister; water pen


  1. Very pretty. One of my favorite 'first' sets ever. Perfect for this technique.

  2. You should be happy... your card is beautiful! Love teh way you stamped over the flower and splattered around it. Very nice!

  3. I'm so glad you're back! You've been missed at Grungy Monday, Vicki, and it's great to see you rockin' the Tim Holtz techniques again! The stamp you chose is just right for this technique, and the card you created is truly beautiful. I love those happy, summer orange tones!
