Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #1
Over on Studio L3's blog a series of challenges has begun. Every Monday Linda will post the page and name of a technique that is found in Tim Holtz's newest book Compendium of Curiosities and she invites anyone who would like to work their way through these techniques to give that weeks challenge a try and share their results. This first challenge is Water Stamping and I made a tag. Distress inks used for the background are forest moss and broken china. Water stamping done with a stamp from the Fancy Flourish set. The words (also Fancy Flourish set) are stamped with Archival Ink jet black. The flowers at the top are cut using Tim's tattered floral die out of the plastic packaging that his texture fades embossing folders come in. Color was added using alcohol inks. They were embossed using the Damask folder. Gold mixitive was gently rubbed over the top of the embossing using my finger. The bottom of the tag is cut using the ornate on-the-edge die and then I added a piece of tag behind the cut area that was colored with both distress inks and adirondack ink so that the color would match the flower. A gold butterfly charm with the edges of the wings alcohol inked. Gold sticky-back pearls added to the center of the flower and along the bottom.
