Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 29 : Weathered Wood Grunge
I am really loving these challenges - so many techniques I have not attempted before. However .............. I am not sure that my weathered grunge is as it should be!
With no wood embossing folder I used a rather busy Tim Holtz Sissix folder and although I used acrylic dabber paint (Aqua) my DI Walnut Stain Ink didn't stay on it very well. If you want to know about the technique just go to page 50 of the Compendium of Curiosities where there is also a rather swish picture of what it should like!
Do also click the link below to Linda's blog and see the other wonderful entries - so much inspiration.

And thank you to Alison (Craftytrog) for the great tip on heating acrylic ribbon! I've got LOADS after doing wedding invitations last year and it shrivels and twists beautifully.
