Masking and Misting with Perfect Pearls

Linda's choice for Grungy Monday this week is an old tutorial of Tim Holtz's for his 12 Tags of Christmas in 2007.  It involves a Perfect Pearls Mist and some masking.

I created my mist from Vintage Gold PP and Faded Jeans Distress reinker. Additional inking involved Pine Needles DI.    Shelly Hickox challenged me to try out my new Tattered Pine Cone die, which was definitely a challenge for me.  I made two, but one looks more like a rose.  I embellished my pine cone with gold microbeads and spritzed some gold Glimmer Mist on the juniper sprays.

Gorgeous color! I might just have to copy you a bit and use that stamp - it looks so good. And, your pine cone looks very pine cone-y! I still need some practice on mine. :-)

Hello Evelyn
How are you? I was only thinking today that you had not posted lately.
The Pine Cone does look like a Challenge! Your Tag is beautiful, your distressing is always so well blended. The Pine Cone adds some tactile quality, and a contrast.

Ohhh Evelyn a feast for the eyes!
Those trees are so pretty, How do you like the pinecone die? I've heard it takes some getting used to. Like you said many say it comes out like a rose.
