CCC13 - Grungepaper flowers

Ooo I love flowers and especially the Tattered Florals, well that's this weeks challenge for the Compendium of Curiosities flowers made from grungepaper - so glad it's the paper and not the board it smells much nicer.

I've made another tag for my collection, we're only a third of the way though the book, so I'm going to have to pick my favourites to frame I think, otherwise I'll have no wall left.






I inked the tag with Tea Dye and Aged Mahogany, stamped Viva flourish in Aged Maghogany.

The image (a freebie from Magic Moonlight) was transferred with Claudine Hellmuth's multi medium, I saw a tip in Craft Stamper to use transparencies instead of paper and it worked brilliantly, grungeflowers covered with T.H Retro papers and inked.

I'm trying to take better photo's and love how a few people have used Tim's book as the background, it looks fab.

Thanks for looking and any comments you feel like leaving.

  7. Sarah, this rocks! I love your grungepaper flowers-- what a cool, retro look! (Guess that's why it's a "Retro" paperstack!)

    Your image transfer looks fabulous, too! I haven't tried this on a transparency, and now I can't wait to give it a shot. Thanks so much!!!
