A Compendium of Curiosities- Studio L3 challenge- or Page 44 :)




Here is something I have been dieing to do! : Submit to the "Tim book challenge" over at Studio L3. As soon as I saw this image over at Tiddlyinks- "Batty"- I HAD to have it! :) Not having much time to stamp these days I pulled out some new dp- (dont ya love the smell? okay..I am weird) and colored "Batty" up! She is on "My Minds's Eye"DP =Haunted-LOVE IT! The technique we are to try is on page 44 in Tim's book= chipped enamel. I got many gift cards for my birthday :) so the "metal" was part of the fun! I ONLY had 2 kinds of distress powders- "old paper " and "walnut stain"- so that is what I used. Mental note to self....GET MORE!! I colored with Copics on an old piece of craft paper- wasnt sure how that would work...and I used my MS mouse border punch. TFL!

Jane, welcome to the CCC! I am so happy you joined the party, and I hope you'll stick around and share more of your wonderful art with us!

You did a fabulous job with the chipped enamel challenge (and yes, now that you've started, you'll probably get hooked on Distress Powder and want them all)! That Batty image is DARLING, and I love the little rat border! Great choice on your DP, too, and I also love that "new paper" smell.

This is fabulous!

You're not weird, I love the smell of my real rubber stamps. Your card came out wonderful. You inspire me to try a new technique.

This is a great card..I love these stamps you use and Batty is the best! I agree that having more distress powder could only be a good thing...kinda addictive! :) Nan
