Welcome back for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 14!!
What a journey this has turned in to!
Making friends, sharing art!, trying new things and being inspired by not only the Curiosity Crew but all of you who are joining in the fun and sharing your art with all of us!
This is one of the most amazing journeys I have ever been a part of!
If you don't have your Compendium of Curiosities Volume III yet, you still have time.
You can order it here.
Tim and Mario have also generously donated a ton of goodness to be given away as prizes.
Challenge 14 is being sponsored by The Funkie Junkie who has also donated a generous gift certificate! So fun...all you need to do is follow the rules here and you might just be a winner!
This weeks challenge is "Colored Crackle."
Out of respect for Tim we don not share the technique but you can find it on page 53 in vol. III.
I had never done this one before either...love it when I get to try something new! hehehe
I do really like the effect.
So here is my tag. I used one of the BIG tags from Ranger.
Love these tags...there is so much room to create with!!!
I embossed it with Wood Grain embossing folder to add more depth and dimension.
Then just started playing and adding fun little accents.
By now you all know how much I LOVE butterflies, wink...and I had to use them for this challenge.
After embossing and inking the large tag with Gathered Twigs I cut out some greenery and lattice.
The greenery was inked with Peeled Paint and Gathered Twigs, then I used my most favorite stamp in the world...Tim's Speckle Stamp with Mowed lawn to add texture to the leaves.
The lattice was inked with Gathered Twigs and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
Love that effect!
Butterflies were stamped and inked as well as a few other embellies and then it was time to put it all together.
Some Ideaology has to be added for the finishing touches...never looks done without it to me, wink.
And below a close up of the Colored Crackle Butterfly!
So what are you waiting for???
