Compendium of Curiosities ~ week 8 ~ inking grunge challenge

It's time for a new challenge over at Studio L3. Linda has another brilliant new challenge to swing the old mojo into action. :)

If anyone saw my post earlier today... these are the flower petals that featured on my desk. I am really quite happy with the result. I was worried the flowers might be too dark...

I can't give you any details... only to say we are going back to basics & working from page 39 of our Compendium of Curiosities, where you'll find Tim's tutorial for Inked Grunge!

Here is my Grungepaper flower.... inked, sprayed & stamped!

This was sooooo much fun! I think I say this every week but it's so true!

Thank You Linda.xx


I added my finished flower to a tag......
