CCC #33 (and #32)


You probably guessed by my title that I again got behind on this challenge... only 1 week - not so bad, lol.  Pop on over to Linda's blog for all the details about this challenge series base on Tim Holtz's book Compendium of Curiosities.  A MUST HAVE book!!  Challenge #33 is altered metal alcohol inks and found on page 56.  I used that technique on the heart and the staples (used my autographed tiny attacher that I won on Linda's blog - thanks, Tim & Linda).  Challenge #32 is inking and stamping masks on page 59 and I used that technique for the background.  Distress inks used - crushed olive, broken china, wild honey, victorian velvet, shabby shutters, faded jeans, rusty hinge.  Alcohol inks - watermelon, sail boat blue.

Wanda, you combined the two challenge themes perfectly-- this is an utterly gorgeous tag! Your masking is perfect, and the altered metal heart is a lovely way to embellish it. Great background stamping, too, and the colors are so pretty and spring-y. Wonderful work!

I was scrolling down the thumbnails of the entries and yours shouted at me - this tag is wonderful!
I was only thinking the other day, Tim should do coloured staples - derrr you've cracked it.
