CCC #8 - Inking Grunge


The current challenge for Compendium of Curiosities is found on page 39 of the book - Inking Grunge.  The details for this challenge are found on Linda's blog.  All stamps used on my tag are Tim Holtz.  Tim Holtz dies used are caged bird, tattered florals, and elegant flourishes... all cut from grunge and inked with Distress Inks.  Stamping over the distress inks is Archival Ink coffee and cobalt - except for the flowery flourish on the background, that was distress ink brushed corduroy.  The "create" piece is Ten Seconds Studio metal dijon, a TSS mold, and wheel for the edges.  Ideology hitch, jump rings, and token.  Black Glaze pen for the dots.
