Can't believe it's nearly weekend .... again!!! These four day weeks don't half fly by.
I was determined this week to get something done for the new Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge which got under way last week.
Now I'm new to this challenge ..... a CC Challenge virgin you could say! But, I love everything Tim Holtz and I've got the books so, when I spotted that the fun was about to start using the third book I just had to join in ... well it would be rude not to wouldn't it!
The challenge is run by the very talented Linda Ledbetter, and .... every two weeks there'll be a new theme based on one of the fabulous techniques covered in the Compendium of Curiosities 3.
There's also the Curiosity Crew who will be providing lots of inspiration for each challenge. And there's fabulous prizes up for grabs too ....... The first of the challenges is sponsored by .....
with a mahoosive 50 Dollars Gift Certificate .... WOW!
What is the first challenge then? .... well it's all about .....
There's not a long list of rules for taking part in the challenge, but one thing they do ask is that you don't post details of the technique on your blog ....... You'll have to get your own copy of the book to see all that ..... it's on page 43.
Here's my finished results though .....
The beautiful face is from the Stampers Anonymous Classics #5 set (SCF005)
And the butterflies are done using one of my most used stamps, an IndigoBlu design which was actually a freebie from the Craft Stamper magazine .... ages ago.
I also used a small butterfly punch, and one of the Movers and Shapers dies from the Alterations range.
The die cut and punched ones were all cut from a piece of paint marbled cardstock, and then I overstamped them using one of my favourite script stamps ..... from the Tim Holtz Letters to Santa (CMS053)
The words I added on a hinged section on the bottom of the tag, one of the sayings from Stuff to Say (CMS110) ..... another of my well used, and loved stamp sets!
To finish off I added the black bow to the ladies neck and some coloured seam binding to hang the tag by.
Hope you like it.
Challenge 2 will begin on Saturday .... I wonder what technique it will be this week!
Thanks for popping by today ..... I'm trying to catch up with everything before the weekend so you might just hear from me again later.
Cheerio for now
