CC3Challenge 16

Hello there! 
Can you believe we are on Challenge 16?
It is going so fast! But oh so fun, wink. 
The challenge this week is Layering Stencil-embossing. 
Who doesn't just love Tim's Stencils...they are fabulous.
The material is just right, not to flimsy but not to stiff either. 
And he has so many great designs to boot!
You can find the technique on Page 50 of Compendium Of Curiosities III and if you haven't gotten yours yet, you still can order from Tim himself (even signed) and Mario will get it shipped right out to you!  What could be better then that? 
So if you play along and follow the few rules for the challenge you may win some goods. 
Tim and Mario have also donated a plethora of fabulous prizes as well.  
Fabulous stuff I tell you, hehehe.  
AND...the Funky Junkie is donating a very nice gift certificate. 

So, I am back to the burlap panels...I tell you I cannot get enough of those babies. 
I think I need to stock up...not hoard, just stock up. 
I would hate to run out of them, wink. 
I decided to go festive.
With Thanksgiving right around the corner I thought it would be fun to have a little reminder to always be Thankful.  We are having Thanksgiving with our family that just moved here from Texas. 
I think this will be a nice little gift to bring and leave with them. 

I am not going to get into the details of the technique itself out of respect for Tim. 
Like I said you can find the technique itself on page 50.
 I will share that the leaves are cut from the Layered Leaf Die and embossed with the folder that comes with it.  I used the Distress Sprays to color them.  Just spray onto your craft sheet and swipe the leaf through...LOVE the coloration it gives...very vibrant.  
I also used some of Rangers new foil to accent a bit on the leaves.  
This was in Tim's tag this month and once I did it...well, I'm hooked...I want to foil everything! 

 Once all the die cuts were colored, they were arranged on the panel. 
Of course you have to have some Ideaology. 
It is a perfect way to finish anything off. 
I hope you enjoyed my "always be thankful" canvas. 
Make sure you visit each of the Curiosity Crew's blogs and leave a comment. 
(that's one of those little rules, wink)
You can go here to the fabulous Linda Ledbetter's blog and link to all the Crew and read up on the rules. 
Hopefully I will see you next time....have a great weekend and enjoy all the inspiration from the Curiosity Crew....we cannot wait to see what you share with us this time.  
You guys are rocking these challenges!!!

  2. Firstly, loved your politically correct name for hoarding, "stocking up".... LOL and secondly, what a beautiful Thanksgiving card for your family. Those leaves are the bell of the ball and you've certainly added the best embellishments, all atop a sensational background! You make burlap even more incredible!
    Thanks so much for the inspiration.

  19. Yvonne...this canvas is absolutely beautiful. I so love your rich, "earthy" colors that you've used on this. I love all of your "natural" elements that you've used, too...down to the honeycomb stenciling. I need some of that new foil stuff. I've not checked it out but I will NOW! Happy Thanksgiving my dear friend! <3 Candy

The sentiment is absolutely perfect! I love the leaves too and the other embellishments are so cleverly placed. The use of the monocle is really clever! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  23. Your powerful "Always be Thankful" grabbed me right away. The leaves are gorgeous and I think you should just give your self over to unbridled obsession and hoard those burlap babies. I mean, look what you do with them!! The honeycomb accent is a lovely foundation for this "sweet" piece. <3 <3 <3
