CCC #17


This weeks Compendium of Curiosities Challenge is the technique found on page 64 of the book.  To get all the details of this challenge stroll on over to Linda's blog

Some details from my tag.  The blue/green piece is another piece I had done when working on the Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge technique... it was just lying there in my work area so I decided to use it.  The girl image is from Tim's Lost and Found paper stack.  Be confident find your wings and fly rubber stamp is a Studio 490... all other stamps are Tim Holtz.  All die cuts are Tim Holtz.  Die cut leaves were painted with distress crackle, rubbed with brushed corduroy after the crackle was dry, extra wiped off, gold paint dabber added lightly and brown dots made with a Sharpie.  Gold paint dabber used on all edges and also for some stamping.  Black Glaze pen for black dots.  Shabby Shutters distress Stickles used on the rosette flower and on the ribbon at the top.  Ideology pieces for embellishments except the butterfly and it is from a Petals A Plenty set.

This is GORGEOUS, Wanda! I love the teal-toned strip across the center-- what a great and unique way to decorate a tag! All the colors are lovely, and the little charm is SO CUTE! (That little girl reminds me of Nelly Oleson from "Little House on the Prairie!") The rosette is fabulous (isn't that die fun?) and I love the little butterfly charm, demonstrating how to fly.

Great, wonderful work of art, my dear!
