Compendium - 9 - Distress Crackle

This week - week 9 - how time flies - the Compendium Challange by Linda at Studio L3 is page 42, Distress Crackle.  That's all I can tell you about the challenge, as you need to have the book to see the technique.

I am continuing in my tag theme (like several others I intend to "do" something with them when we get to the end!)
I've used wild honey and rusty hinge inks on the tag, threw some drops of water on the tag as raindrops and brolly man on grungepaper for the "challenge" focus.

Few bits and pieces of idea-ology to finish.

Got to go and post my Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge piece too now - been a busy girl tonight!!
