CC2C #4


This weeks Compendium of Curiosities Book 2 Challenge (see Tim's Blog) is page 43, Faded Layers... go to Linda's blog to get all the details on the challenge. 

I decided to work smaller this week and started with a #5 manilla tag instead of a #8.  Used a couple of Tim's Idea-ology mini masks and Distress Ink mustard seed, wild honey, and festive berries.  Stamped part of Wendy's Studio 490 wire mesh background stamp with Archival Ink russet.  Stamped the Dylusions vine image along the left with Archival Ink olive and colored them in with DI peeled paint.  "You are Amazing" is one of the new Quietfire Design images - it is stamped with Archival Ink jet black.  The rolled flower is freehand cut from a piece of Distress Coredinations paper, rolled up, glued and Distress Stickles rock candy added to the top edges.  Die cut some leaves from white cardstock, inked & sprayed, stamped with Wendy's number background stamp in olive.  Used a white pen for the highlights and dots and a black pen for the black doodles.

I love the saturated, summery colors, and the fact that you shared how you made the flower. I've been looking at dies for flowers like this, but I don't know which one is the best yet. Tried any of them?
