CCC #18 - Dabber Resist

This week brings us to the halfway point of doing every technique in Tim Holtz's book, Compendium of Curiosities.  If you don't know what this is all about, head on over to Linda Ledbetter's blog, Studio L3, to get all the details.  Linda is an absolutely wonderful hostess!!! 

The Distress ink colors used on the background of my tag are stormy sky and crushed olive... wow, do these look fabulous together!!!  All stamps used are Tim Holtz images.  The bird/branch is stamped using a black paint dabber.   The bottom of the tag is cut with an On The Edge die.  There has been talk about the tissue tape flower the cruisers did in one of their classes and I just had to try one... pretty cool, but next time I'll start with a little larger circle.  The green piece under the tissue tape is a juice bottle lid.  If you haven't seen any of my plastic bottle cap flowers, take a peek at this post and this post.  This time, however, I've used a much larger cap than the ones from the water bottles.  The edges of the tag and the bottle cap flower are dabbed with the gold paint dabber.  Also used is Tim's Ideology film strip ribbon, memo pin, and accoutrement.  Some gold cording and green lace to finish things off.

Fabulous as always Wanda! I've just been making my entry for this week's challenge which isn't quite finished yet and it's a great technique even though I couldn't quite get the distress ink off my white as much as I'd like :D. Your bottle cap flower is wonderful too, it's a really great idea. :D

OH your quick. I love the bottle cap flower. i am still deciding on what I want to make for this challenge. It will be my first since I just got the book.

Oh Wanda. Those colors are fabby together. Love it. I saved a few covers and caps in various colors and cut them into flowers too. Haven't used them for anything but they are on my desk. Need to figure out how to get them flatter.

Wow, Wanda, this is just awesome! You did the dabber resist perfectly, and that flower is brilliant! I'm so glad you posted the link to the technique-- that's one to bookmark, for sure!

I love the colors you used, and little film strip is a great embellishment. "Creative" is definitely the word here-- it's a wonderful work of art!

Thank you so much for your kind words. :-)
