Live the Life Tag

I finally got a chance to work on this week's Grungy Monday challenge which was Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas, 2007, Day 2. My tag worked well with Hel's challenge of diamonds at the Ink on my Fingers Sunday Challenge. For my background I used a grungy diamond background from my stamp stash. I added the paint grungily (if that's a word) because I didn't want rows of diamonds. Broken china, peeled paint, and dusty concord are the background colors with stormy sky around the edges. Don't you love the hot air balloon from Tim's new stamps. The ghost shapes are kind of hidden, but they are there -- fleur de lis. This was a fun technique and I'm really happy with the results.
