The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

A grungey idea-ology day
Whilst watching the golf run away from the Brits again, I have been making another tag. (Yes, I know, but I've got lots now!)
Used my fave wild honey & rusty hinge DI inks with a bit of aged mahogany round the edge. Had a large grunge flower in my stash for ages which was coloured mustard seed, that didn't really go so I added rusty hinge to it, stamped another one for the middle, used a type charm, then tore off a leaf whilst inking the leaf grunge...stapled it back together ... made a grunge rose (badly in truth) - its barn door, but I' ve added some distress stickles in spiced marmalade. It's still drying, but I've never learnt patience...
I've used one of Tim's compendium techniques that I haven't tried before, on the foliage pieces - distress embossed them.
