Grungy Monday #39

We were challenged by Linda for this week's GM  (sponsored by Simon Says Stamp) to use Tim Holtz's technique to create plaid with alcohol inks. I used my results for the backgrounds on these quick cards. I'm not sure why they are so different in colour as they were made using the same inks but it is possible that in my "Where's the glossy paper hiding? ... Ah, found 2 pieces" moment that they weren't both the Ranger glossy paper I thought they were!
For the first card I also used yesterday's Sketch Saturday #199:
 Used: Ranger Alcohol inks (bottle, terracotta, denim, hazelnut, sunset orange, sailboat blue, citrus), Blending solution and Glossy paper; Stamps: Car: Tim Holtz; 'Wild Bouquet': Hero Arts and text: Compagnie des elfes;
other inks: Stazon (Jet black), Momento (Sweet Plum), Distress Ink (Black Soot); Cuttlebug embossing folder; Paper scraps: K&Co and GCD Studios; gems: Dovecraft and MME; flowers: Dovecraft.


  1. Beautiful! Love how you embellished part of the embossed strip up top. Funny what a difference the paper makes!
