Grungy Monday No 9

This week the challenge is to use T!m's 2007 Day 10 Christmas tag technique for that shabby chic look.
It's a big bonus to be on holiday today so I can join in again :)

Mine has turned out much darker than I'd like mainly because I only have 4 colours of dabber....ideally I would have liked to add a touch of pinkness to the background but I had to make do with sitting the word fragments on a bit of pink card instead!!! LOL
To try to give it a bit of a lift I added some gold dabber in places and added the T!m word photograph in white dabber.
To see how it's done by the real pro follow the link above to T!m's blog.
Thanks for the inspiration T! are a diamond ;)
Thanks for looking and happy stamping!

P.S. I always apologise when using this stamp as I know clowns freak so many of you!
What can I say........I love this stamp! HOL

  4. Fantastic tag Sioux! Not sure about the scary clowns tho! lol! xx

  5. It's a wonderful tag! Kind of fun seeing the clowns on it.

  6. This is gorgeous- love the clowns! I only have one dabber so I am going to be very limited! Came here to see no.8 so wasnt expecting to see no.9 already! Well done!!

  7. So much for limitations - you did a great job on the technique. Fun stamps too.

  8. this is fab! Love the texture of your project! Hugs Juls

  10. Oh my! This is terrific! Clowns don't freak me out, but they are sometimes strange. I think this stamp is perfect for the tag and the technique.

  11. Love your tag although the clowns are a bit spooky!! Sorry!!
