Poppies - Grungy Monday 07

 'I Love You' ATC

Grungy Monday on a Saturday morning... what fun!  Grungy Monday's 07 challenges us to use the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Colour Block technique.


'Illuminate' ATC

I have a very limited collection of Distress inkpads, so that helped me to quickly decide upon the colour palette I would be working with (and created a great desire to increase my inkpad collection)!  I enjoyed playing with this colour block technique, as it was a quick and easy way to create a unique background.  'I Love You' is pure distress ink colour, but I added a wash of coffee to the 'Illuminate' ATC.

All stamped images are Tim Holtz, the gorgeous collage images are from ARTchix Studio and words are from Collections.
