Garden Tag

Studio L 3      GM06-Tech from 12 Tags of Christmas, 2007, Day 8
Theme Thursday     Thursday Challenge-Garden!

I am so happy Blogger is back up and I hope everyone's posts got restored. My husband and sons wanted me to learn to use computers and new gadgets, but now that I'm blogging and learning how to use all these neat gadgets they say they have created a techno monster. I have to be connected all the time. ;-)
Now, onto this tag. I think the exercise was to create something that looked like weathered wood, but when I got through dragging the aqua and lettuce sponge dabbers on my tag and they dried, then I started sponging distress inks it kind of whispered GARDEN to me. Maybe I had the Theme Thursday challenge rattling around in the old noodle. So, with Artful Things and Flights of Fancy stamp sets I went crazy stamping, then to finish it off I added some of my favorite fuzzy fibers.
I hope it turned out in the spirit of the technique. Tim Holtz is such a phenomenal innovator and teacher. I'm so glad I found Studio L3 because I have been really enjoying putting these techniques and supplies to use. 

Supplies: Manilla Tag, Paper: SU-Naturals Ivory card stock, Stamps: Stampers Anonymous-Flights of Fancy, Artful Things, Ink: Distress Inks-Weathered Wood, Tattered Rose, Frayed Burlap, Tea Dye, Victorian Velvet, Adirondack Paint Dabbers-Aqua, Lettuce, $ Store Fibers, SU dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
