CCC26 Challenge : Rusted Grunge Technique


Here is my entry for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over on Studio L3.  Again not a technique I've done before, so I'm really enjoying these challenges.  This is my favourite background technique too - distress inks and spritzing!  And ... my favourite colours of Distress Inks - Faded Jeans and Brushed
 Corduroy.

I just love how you've used the bracket latch thingy... it looks just like a cool lamp post, and the perfect thing to rust

Lovely tag! The background is awesome! I don't use this technique either, only in the challenge. It is cool how it comes out looking though!

What a beautiful tag, Jennie! I love how you used the rusted grunge hinge piece-- it looks great and has such an elegant feel. The background is so, so pretty, too, and the lace and little tickets embellish it perfectly. Wonderful job!
