Watercolouring in a curious way..

I love the technique on page 40 of Tim's Compendium of Curiosities III so when I saw challenge 20 on Linda Ledbetter's blog - Studio L3 I knew I had all of the required supplies (I don't always!)
The rules mean that I am not allowed to show you the technique used but if you haven't yet got your copy you can get one HERE signed by the man himself!!
The prize is a $25 voucher to spend at The Funkie Junkie Boutique owned by Linda Coughlin and as well as that there is a chance to get another prize donated by Tim himself - all the details are on Linda's blog.

Here is my tag

Thanks for looking, Chris

That's a beautiful tag, Chris - so delicate and subtle in its colouring, and I love the frayed fabric through the wordband - altogether gorgeous!

Lovely work, Chris. The organic feel of this piece is brilliant. You've done a great job with Tim's watercolor technique and the Pear Legend is a perfect subject for it. Thanks for sharing it on CC3C!
