Compendium of Curiosities

Well another week and its another challenge over at Lindas place....this week its grunge flowers instructions are on page 65, but I'm sworn to secrecy as to how you do I did use Italian print to cover them first so that it tied in with my theme.....Venice, I'm in the process of making a mini album but what takes a couple of days for most people takes me well so far over 6 months, granted I don't work on it that much usually when a challenge is for a tag that I can fit in with it. The square images are from Crafty Individuals and have been stamped in sepia and gold and tea dye embossing powder added to parts of the images. The background was glimmer misted over a regal mask from Tattered Angels. The lace is from my shopping expedition in Holland....oh well once I've used my trims up I have another excuse to go back. The stamps I used for the corneers are from Viva.....amazing set of stamps for just £3.50 from Bubbly Funk.
