Grungy Monday 22!

Sponsored by:
Welcome, blog friends! It’s been way too long since we grunged our Monday, and I’m so happy to be back with a brand new challenge for you! My week-long cruise with Tim, Mario, a bunch of my net friends– and my lovely mom!– left me inspired and inky, and I can’t wait to dive back in. I hope you’re ready, too! How ’bout we get seasonal with…
A Holtz-ian Halloween!
Please click here for instructions and links to the products I used. 

The rules for this challenge are super simple: Create something Halloween-related using a one or more of your favorite Tim Holtz products! How fun is that? Let your creative self have a field day!

I used the new, limited-edition Seasonal Distress Inks for this card, and absolutely fell in love with the colors! Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserves and Gathered Twigs = WOWZA! If you missed out on the first production of these beautiful inks, fear not– Ranger is making one more batch of them this year, and you can order a set from Simon Says Stamp right now, while their supply lasts!

There’s also a chance I might give a set away. You just never know. 😉

Speaking of Simon Says Stamp, they’ve graciously offered to sponsor this week’s challenge, and will award a $25 shopping spree to one of the GM22 participants! To be eligible to win, create your own Holtz-ian Halloween piece and post it on your blog or online photo album, and please be sure to tell us which of Tim’s products you used. Don’t forget to include a link to Tim’s website ( in your post or photo description. The winner of the shopping spree will be chosen by the lovely ladies at SSS and posted on their blog soon after this challenge ends.

During the cruise, I had the delightful experience of finally meeting the lovely Gloria, list mom at the All Things Tim discussion group and organizer extraordinaire! Gloria has a photo album especially for Grungy Monday at the group homepage, and you’re invited to share your artwork with this awesome group of artists!

There you go, my fabulous, Grungy friends! I can’t wait to see your Tim Holtz-themed Halloween art, and hope you have a wonderful week!


P.S. Congratulations to Sandy Nolan, who won the Tim Holtz prize package from our last challenge. Sandy did a beautiful job on the “Transparent Illusions” theme:
