Linda's got a great new challenge on Grungy Monday this week being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.  We've been asked not to share t!m's techniques, so if you want to play, you'll have to go to his site and order yourself one (or BOTH!) of his fantastic books.

I've been using t!m and Dyan's idea and using tags to mop up the excess ink on my Kraft Sheet, so this tag has all sorts of colors layered on it! I used t!m's Artful Dwellings die to cut my stamps. I kinda like how they didn't stamp *perfectly* because it makes the houses look like the paint is peeling off. Houses are stamped using Shabby Shutters, Broken China and Rusty Hinge. I did the sentiment on my printer then doodled around each of the words. Found a key to open the door to all three houses in my stash and a gear and clock hand.
