Compendium vol 2 - challenge 6

Ideas seem to have deserted me this weekend, and there was so much I wanted to do... Anyhow, the latest challenge hosted by Linda from the Compendium of Curiosities volume 2, is Tissue Wrap Collage - page 38
I can't tell you the details, check out the book (available at all good craftshops but also from Tim here 

My paint dabbers are very dried up - and so are my baby wipes - and my tissue wrap didn't wrinkle enough... but apart from that I like this technique!!

The heart I used is the free cover stamp from Craft Stamper magazine a while ago and I love this heart...

This week's challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie's Boutique

Hmmm...funny that, all my dabbers have dried up too, and my crackle paints!!!!

But you've got to make the best of a bad job haven't you and that certainly shows here, it looks fabulous. I actually love the way it's turned out with the touch of colour rather than a bold colour, looks very distressed and grungy, just the way I like it!!!

Hahaha! I too get to my desk and find that nothing is working - so chuffed it's not just me. For a gal with no ideas this is pretty incredible! You are a star missus!

Very pretty tag Helen :) I dread to think how dry my inks and stuff are. Probably got tumbleweed blowing through there.

That is LOVELY!! It sounds like we had a similar weekend, crafting wise, but I think we did ok in the end. :))

Very cutsie Helen. I like that stamp too! Tell you a secret - I only have two dabbers - black and white! Shhh! Don't tell anyone! Hee Hee!

Helen, it's absolutely gorgeous! I love the composition and the happy colors, and I think you achieved great wrinkle action! It's beauteous!

Do you store your Dabbers upside down? It really does help keep them from turning to concrete!
