Finally, some Christmas!!

Weeks ago, I took a Tim Holtz inspired class at Archivers.  I LOVED it.  I told hubby I want the Valentine's one for a Christmas gift!!  I learned things I didn't know and ALOT that I did (which was good 'cause the class was 4 hours long as it was.  If I was dumber, I would have NEVER gotten thru!!!)

Ok, so this tag introduced me to Grungepaper.  I've used (and loved) grungeboard but this was my first time HEARING of grungepaper.  It's similar in texture (and smell!) but much thinner.  We die cut the flower out of the paper, texturized it (for the record, grungeBOARD can be texturized too!) and inked it with fire brick red distressing ink.  We stamped the reindeer in fire brick & then heat embossed it (I forget that distress inks can be embossed!!).  Then we cut & added the letters, distressed & inked the paper (this is where I learned how to use the ink tool that I've had for MONTHS & never could figure out what to do with it!!)  Easy peasy!!

All paper is Bo Bunny.  All stamps & inks are Tim Holtz/Ranger etc.
