Grungy Monday #7

Here it is, already Friday and I am just getting my Grungy Monday piece done. Where does the time go! I had a good time putting this one together. The technique is really simple and fun following Tim's instructions on his video. I love the challenges that Linda puts put there for us every week at Studio L3 blog. So much fun! After I made the backgrounds, I stamped Mona on one and tore around her. I tore up the flap from opne of the boxes I just got from an online order from SSSS and peeled back the paper to expose the corrugated part. Sprayed it with Ranger's Expresso mist and then over the top of that, sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls mist. Yummy sparkle in real life. doubt the camera picked up on that. Gotta get it in the mail today though as it has also become listmom, Gloria's birthday card. LOL. Since i used the box, I am also entering this over at the Inspiration emporium blog where the challenge is to use packaging.

Mona looks great with those colors. That is such a great idea in repurposing the corrugated paper and makes for a neat background. Now I know I need to get some of those colors. You are very inspirational. Thank you.
