Grungy Monday 07

Today's post is sponsored by Tim Holt----
OK, it isn't.
I just wanted to see if you were awake.
No one sponsors my posts, just me and my cat. (who is licking my bowl clean of whipped cream as we speak)
ANYWAYS (as my mother used to say when she was not interested in my opinion)
See this?
Very GREEN, doncha think?
The background is based on a technique from the archives of Mr Tim Holtz called
Distress Ink Colour Blocking
and I'm here to tell you, a orangutan could do this technique (if s/he watched Tim's video), it's so easy.
(no slight meant to any orangutans in the crowd)
I'll bet now you want to watch the video, don't you?
Well, the link for said video may be found at Linda Ledbetter's Studio L3 in this week's GRUNGY MONDAY post.
And because it's so easy, you have plenty of time to whip something up and play along.
So get to it!
(and if someone can tell me how to spell orangutan, I'd be eternally grateful)
