Grungy Monday #18

For Grungy Monday 18 Linda at Studio L3 had us go to Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas...{day 8} 2009!

Here is my creation!

The bird is from the "Nature" grunge pack - I used Black Soot Distress Ink then covered it with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder!  This is the coolest embossing powder ever, it changes colors depending on how much you heat it!  (I heated the center a bit more than the edges)  On the branch I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink with Vintage Photo Distress Powder.  See below for the other products used.

Have a fabulous week and be sure to check the StudioL3 blog for Challenge 19 after Monday, August 8!
