Grungy Monday Goes to London

So it's not Monday, but at least I managed to play along again this week - yeah me!  This week Linda is challenging us to use the Tim Holtz Blog Technique Challenge, from April 2008, let's just say I failed!  Maybe it was the small print on the BG stamp I used, who knows, but it's better to have tried and failed then to have never tried at all!  Here's my attempt....

Click to Enlarge
London stamps are from the Artistic Outpost Loverly London Plate, I did a little masking to collage the images, the background image used in the technique is from the Ephemeral Background Plate.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost
Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival, Distress Inks Walnut Stain, Scattered Straw, SU Ruby
Card Stock - Vanilla, Kraft, Black
Other - Graphic 45 Pattern Paper, Distress Tool, Ink Blending Tool, Craft Mat, Eclipse Tape, Espresso Dabber, Mister Bottle, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool

Thanks for stopping by!

Looking just fine from here and it all works together wonderfully to create a fabulous scene... vintage grunge at its best - and this chap is such a cool dude.

I looked hard and all I saw was cool. No failure anywhere. Love your colors and how you layer the card. Great job.
