Ornament of a House - Grungy Monday #14

Thanks for stopping by today!  I'm super excited to be the Guest Designer for this weeks Grungy Monday Challenge!  For this weeks challenge, Linda has us revisiting the March 2008 Technique by Tim Holtz.  Since Perfect Pearls Mists were not available when Tim showcased this technique, I thought I'd give it a go, as an alternative to creating my own.  My results with the pre-made Pearls Mist resulted in a much lighter color than I was looking for, so back to the drawing board I went. I created my mists sprays using Distress Ink Refills/Perfect Pearls in Marmalade/Copper PP, Worn Lipstick /Forever Red PP, Mustard Seed/Gold PP, and Peeled Paint/Interference Green.

 All images are from  Artistic Outpost, the birds can be found on the BlueBird Plate.  Originally I had another row of birds, but since I typically cut my tags down and create cards, I cut them off.  I should have cut the tag first, next time I'll remember!  The beautiful house/tree image and sentiment can be found on The Outpost Plate.


My fellow Guest Designer for this weeks challenge is France Papillon, be sure to stop by and see what she created! We'd love to have you play along, if you don't have all the supplies called for in the technique, try substituting similar products!

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost BlueBird, The Outpost
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Walnut Stain, Old Paper
Card Stock - Manilla Tag, Kiwi, Black
Other - Distress Ink Stains (Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade,  Mustard Seed), Perfect Pearls (Copper, Interference Green, Gold, Forever Red), Big Shot, Texture Fades Folder, Distress Tool, Mini Mister Bottles, Non Stick Craft Sheet, Ink Blending Tool, Dimensionals, Heat Tool, Adirondack Dabber, Memory Box Pattern Paper

Have a great day!

I absolutely love your card. It is simply stunning.
I have never thought of cutting the tag down to use on a front of a card. What a fantastic idea. I will now have to go home and check out how many i can do that for!!!
I can't wait to try this technique this week!!
