So here we are Challenge #33...only one more to go after this one.
We do have some exciting things in the works...and I know we are all looking forward to sharing more fun and creative adventures with all of you!
As always, lets take a moment and thank our very generous sponsors.
Inspiration Emporium has donated a very generous $50 gift certificate to be awarded to a lucky someone along with the stash of goodies Tim and Mario donated!
Those guys are so very generous.
Make sure when you play along that you follow the rules, they are really easy peasy.
Read about them here.
Today's challenge is Altered Surfaces on page 45 in the third volume of
Compendium of Curiosities.
I have been absolutely in love with blues lately. Can't seem to get enough of them, wink.
I used Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Broken China Distress Ink
along with some Picket Fence Distress Paint.
To create the background I put some of all the colors of Distress Ink onto a non stick craft sheet.
Spritzed it with water, stamped a clear block into the puddles to pick up color.
Then over and over again stamped that on to a tag. Once the color was the way I wanted it I smeared some Picket Fence Paint onto my craft sheet, spritzed it with water and did the same technique with the acrylic block. Dry with a heating tool, once it's dry I blended on Salty Ocean with a blending tool to just even it out a bit.
Really fun technique...hope you might give it a try!
It creates so much texture in the background.
I took some of Tim's arrows and the number three (hehehe)
and used the technique you will find on page 45...this is one of my faves.
Love the vintage worn feel you get.
So that about covers it I think.
If you haven't already make sure and check out what the rest of the Curiosity Crew created.
It is so fun to see what everyone is up too...I LOVE being able to hop from blog to blog and soak up all that lovely inspiration!
Also I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much for all your sweet and kind comments.
You, ALL of you have made this journey so fun, special and inspirational!
Sometimes I am just sitting with my mouth hanging open at what you all come up with!
Hope you have a great weekend!
Big hugs...until next time.
