CC2 Challenge #8

Hello all! Today I'm here to post my entry for this week's Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge (I think I got it done on time this time! =P) . This challenge is run by the always fabulous Linda Ledbetter at the Studio L3 blog, and is based on the techniques of Tim Holtz. You can buy his book here. (And get it autographed too!) This week we're doing the technique on page 62 of the book. And here's my entry:

For the background I used a Sticky-Back Canvas ATC and stuck it to an ATC Art Part to make it sturdy. It was painted, inked and stamped before adding my embellishments. I painted the heart and the lace border with gold paint dabber. The heart is attached paint side down which gives it an interesting look. Then I just cut a banner with the Tattered Banners die, did some stamping and stuck it down. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I also sprayed the background with Biscotti Perfect Pearls mist, so it's really quite sparkly in real life. =) 

I'm writing this quite late so I'm going to keep it short. I think I will also enter this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge for this week, which is all about texture. I think I have quite a bit between my canvas and my painting.

I hope you have some time to create this week! Thanks so much for looking! =)

  3. Hey there Mary! Just dropping by to say a big thank you for the comment you left on my blog. So very kind of you to stop by and say hello. However... your blog comment got deleted by mistake! I'm so sorry, it wasn't deliberate but I really appreciate every comment and just wanted to let you know that it did get to me, just not to the blog :-(

    I had a bit of a scan through the first few pages of your blog and I have to say that I love the cards you've made here and the layouts for LOAD! Congrats on finishing a half LOAD! This card here is really lovely.

    Do drop by and say hello again, it's always lovely to see new readers and I promise the next comment won't get messed up by me! Sorry again!



Thank you to everyone who takes the time to comment. I really appreciate your kind words and encouragement! =)
