Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 8


Hi everyone, hope you're having a good weekend. I'm just scraping in on lovely Linda's Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities challenge number 8 where this week it's page 39 'Inking grunge'. I chose to use grunge paper and made a necklace using the TH tattered florals die, Ranger distress inks: Broken China, spiced marmalade, worn lipstick, walnut stain, a Viva swirl stamp, Cocoa archival ink,  some brown linen thread, Viva pearl pen on the knots and a spray of pearl glimmer mist. Have a lovely Sunday.

Oooooooooh!! NOW I'm inspired!!!! Chris this is amazing!!! I have tons of grungepaper that I bought because I was afraid I was missing out on something! I've never used it because a) I don't like the smell of it, and b) I've never thought it was anything special. Now that I've seen this I am REALLY inspired and I think I am going to have to go and have a play! FABULOUS!!!!! Hugs xx

Wow, Chris, this is FABULOUS! What a cool fashion statement, and an absolutely wonderful work of art!

The inked grunge flowers are gorgeous, and even prettier with the pearl glimmer, and I love how you strung them together. I bet you'll get a TON of compliments when you wear this!

Amazing work Chris, am in awe especially as when I tried to die-cut grunge paper it didn't want to know! Is there no end to your talent? Thanks for your lovely comments.
