Tissue wrapped for compendium of curiosities challenge, technique 10

Well by the skin of my teeth again, but at least I have been poorly so have an excuse for my lateness!!! When I was feeling really poorly....I kept thinking I cannot miss a week...but just couldn't muster any get up and go..it had Got up and GONE!!!!! But I made it..
also thanks to those lovely people who missed me!!!
The challenge is hosted by the fab Linda and is all about the techniques from the crafty master Tim himself as detailed in compendium of curiosities vol two, this week sponsored by the lovely Linda @ http://www.zibbet.com/TheFunkieJunkie with $25 prize!
so enough , here is mine:

I decided to stick to browns as I love them!! I must admit not sure if I won the tissue fight when making this flower!!! Note to self...need more practise!!

The tag background was made using lots of Tim's fab techniques and a few squirts of perfect pearls and inkiness.I added some ribbon and idea-ology to complete . I mean every tag needs some idea-ology?!
Make sure you hop across and see all the fab entries,all the details for the flowers are in Tims book , page 37
