~* Industrial Grunge Christmas Tag (Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 20) - 2nd Post *~


Hi Everyone!

When I saw the challenge for this week at Studio L3's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 20 - Industrial Grunge, I was so intrigued! I always love to try out new techniques...I actually finally just got my Compendium of Curiosities...I know ;p'...

I used a chipboard piece that I cut using Tim Holtz's tag die. I used his snowflake mask and my Smooch Spritzes to create the shimmery background.

I had a lot of fun with the Industrial Grunge technique. I used it on the two Christmas trees and two stars. I had to improvise since I did not have some of the tools... I added my Industrial Grunge pieces and voila.

Hope you like it! Have a great Friday and weekend!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
