This week the challenge at Grungy Monday is to explore your favorite new technique from the 12 Tags of Christmas 2011. I chose the background technique from tag 1 and the candle treatment from tag 9. (Simon Says Stamp is this week's sponsor.)
The background clocks texture fade fits right in to the Sunday challenge at Ink on my Fingers which is Time of Your Life. The vintage look meets the January challenge at Artistic Stamper which is vintage. The Random Redhead Challenge at Gingersnap Creations is Candelabras. Chandeliers and Candles.
