GM and SSSS


This weeks Grungy Monday Challenge is Texture Fades and Distress and the Simon Says Stamp and Show is a Lord Tim of Holtz Technique... so I'm entering both challenges with this ATC.  I started with a Ranger manila ATC blank, dipped it into a puddle of Distress Stains faded jeans and dusty concord that was sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist turquoise... dried, dipped, dried, dipped... etc. until I liked it.  Stamped the inside of the umbrella man atc texture fade with Tim's Reflection stamp that has all the numbers and embossed my atc piece.  Added Distress Ink chipped sapphire over the man and around the edges.  Stamped Tim's Live the Life with Archival Ink jet black.  I had the roses (Tim's trim colored with something Distress) laying on my work area and decided to add them along with an Ideology type charm attached with an Ideology charm clip.
