Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 26

This week the challenge at Compendium of Curiosities was rusted grunge from p. 45 of Tim's book. There are so many of Tim's die cuts that would look good in rusted grunge. I went with the shield and combined it with stamps from the  Artistic Outpost My Knight stamp set. The background is done with  Wild Honey and Broken China distress inks mixed with copper Perfect Pearls spray and then embossed with a texture fade. Wow! what a look.

This is so beautiful, Barbara! I agree-- Tim's die cuts and the rusted grunge technique make for a perfect combination. You did a fabulous job with these, and I love the embossed background. The colors are amazing! Perfect Pearls Spray makes everything even prettier. Great sentiment, too!
