CCC29 Weathered Grunge

Well, after a few fits and starts I came up with something for Weathered Grunge, the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge from the lovely Linda at Studio L3. It's the book plate with the saying inside (in case you hadn't guessed) also tried Tim's technique of inking up the texture plate before running it through. Kinda like that!!!!


  1. This is wonderful Rachelle. I love the colors you have used and your weathered wood grunge looks terrific. I must have missed your colored fragments so I will tell you now -they are wonderful. Every time I see that cabinet I get very envious. What a fun project and great reminder of your Compendium Journey. Cheers!

  2. Great weathered piece! Love the fibers you used!

  3. What a gorgeous card, Rachelle! You have captured early spring perfectly, and the weathered wood technique looks great on the sentiment plaque! The fibers you used to attach it are perfect, too. I love that trick of inking up the Texture Fade, and it worked so beautifully here! In fact, the entire design is wonderful. Great job!

  4. Rachelle, this is awesome! Love that tree texture fade! and the fibers look great!

  5. Great piece earthy looking!
