Compendium Challenge - week 8

One of my favourites this week over at Studio L3 - page 39 of THE book - inking grunge.

Under the rules of the challenge, I can't tell you the exact method,you'll need the book.
I also, like several of the early entries - used the tattered florals die and a mixture of distress inks - and made  a tag.


On the tag I used wild honey and scattered straw., mostly Tim stamps but also the vine by Wendy.





This is the finished tag

Helen, it's absolutely gorgeous! I think the Tattered Florals die is one of the best dies ever created by anyone, and you've done right by it with your beautifully-inked pieces!

I love the warm colors you chose and the stamps (especially Birds on a Wire-- I love that stamp!)As always, you did a gorgeous job.
