C. of C.- week 26


Week 26 for the on going Compendium of Curiosities challenge over at Studio L3 Linda has brought us to page 45 of Tim Holtz book and the art of producing Rusted Grunge.

I loved trying this technique. My base card is embossed then highlighted with tea dye and vintage photo distress inks. The stamp is from TH Purely Random collection, just right I thought for graffiti on the wall.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look.
