Tissue Technique Tag - 2nd Post of the day!

Just in case you missed my last post I am copying this in from my earlier post today...


Firstly, apologies for not posting much lately - too much going on in my little  world to craft with a clear head and I've been quite ill. Apologies for not visiting/commenting to you all as regularly as usual too - I've been a bit of a lurker!

Half way through making this, I decided I had made a complete mess of it! But, as ever,  I persevered and I'm happy that I did as it ended up with a gorgeous faded vintage effect that I wasn't expecting - it's much prettier than the photo makes it look!

I used the smallest of the die cut grunge flowers for my chipboard shapes and stamped Tim Holtz letters on them. My big flower is made from a thickish Muslin dip dyed in Vintage Photo Distress Ink before die cutting and decorated with Perfect Pearls and Stickles. I used a Tim Holtz fastener to keep it together.

I am entering this for the technique challenge over at Studio L3 Thanks for the challenge Linda. Do check out Tim Holtz's website as well - just in case you've never visited - it's AWESOME! Tim
