CCC #13 and #14
Well, I'm late for challenge #13 so I've combined it with challenge #14. Last week was quite busy and the weekend was very busy... I was partially done with my #13 but realized I just wasn't going to get it done on time... then Monday evening I'm checking for the new challenge and was thrilled to see that the tag I'd started already included the #14 technique already... Amazing!!! and then I told myself it would be just fine if I had only one tag for both challenges, LOLOL... actually I argued just a little at first but things have been crazy and I gave in to the one tag for 2 weeks idea :-))
Distress inks used are mustard seed, wild honey, barn door, and dusty concord. Music paper glued to grungepaper before cutting the tattered florals. After the flowers were inked I spritzed them with gold perfect pearls (mixed with water in a mini mister bottle). The stamped flourishes (Tim Holtz) are colored in with a red Glaze pen. The flowers are wired together, an Ideology accoutrement in the center and the ends of the wires twirled. Tiny attacher staples around the edges and I colored the tops with a purple Sharpie except for the 2 holding the lace, I colored those with a red Sharpie. I used my finger to rub Gold Paint Dabber on the silver butterfly charms and also added a little purple Sharpie near the edges.
As always, see Linda's fabulous blog for all the details about the Compendium of Curiosities challenge.
