Grungy Monday #11 Faux Batik

Faux batik is fun. It's one of those techniques that I forget about, but I always like in the end. Even though it involves ironing. Besides Tim Holtz' techniques I used many of his delightful products, along with victorian velvet, milled lavender and walnut DI's. Since I was ironing anyway, I also used the crumple, ink the wrinkles method that I learned directly from Tim years ago when I got to take a class from him. Soar over to Linda's Studio L3 and All Things Tim to check out all of the beautiful pieces.

Grungy Monday #10 Distress Ink

I made this beauty using distress inks combined with Distress embossing, in my attempt to play along with this weeks Grungy challenge over at Studio L3. I used Master Holtz' Sizzix gears, Generations stamps, Concord Grape, Shabby Shutters and Forest Moss inks and Walnut embossing powder along with a technique from his Compendium. Enjoy my attempt and check out the other great DI projects over at Linda's blog.
