Turn to page 39, in your Compendium of Curiosities, and start Inking Grunge! Challenge #8, posted on Linda's blog, http://www.studiol3.blogspot.com/ is in full swing. I loved how this turned out, and I love inking grunge. It is messy though. I ran my tag through the Big Shot, using Tim's wood grain folder. The bird is left over from the Shabby Chic challenge. When I get done with all these challenges, I think I will put all my tags on a ring, and keep for future reference.

I love how it turned out as well *smiles*. I don't have a die cutting machine yet. Oooooh but I've got my money put up for The Vagabond! Can hardly wait.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leaving such a nice comment on my Grunge necklace.

Lori, I love how it turned out, too! What a wonderful design! Your inked grunge is perfect, and the little bird is so cute, perched on the keyhole! Great embossing on the background, too!

It's a great idea to make your own "technique book" from these projects! Won't that be a cool keepsake?!
