Hi Everybody! Are you ready? It's that time CC3 Challenge #3 is up! Linda Ledbetter over at http://lindaledbetter.com/2014/05/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-3.html and her fabulous Curiosity Crew has "jump started " us once again. Have you been over there yet? Seriously it would be well worth your visit.
Challenge #3 Faux Tea Roses ; comes from p. 65 of Tim Holtz's A Compendium of Curiosities Vol. III. You know the drill ... so get your book out !
I'm excited that Challenge #3 is sponsored by my friends ( yep ... they are my friends too) at Inspiration Emporium ( having trouble getting their link to come up right now). If you participate you have a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to their online store. I love having an opportunity to increase my Tim stash! Speaking of Tim stash ... the Curiosity Crew has a "choice" award too ... another great opportunity to score Tim stash 'cause Tim and Mario have equipped them with some cool Tim product ! So are you motivated to join us yet? Not yet! Alright ... go check out the Curiosity Crews work; it WILL inspire you.
I chose to do a tag. My weapons of choice were my spun sugar, squeezed lemonade and festive berries distress stains; tattered rose, festive berries and frayed burlap distress inks; latticework stencil, life quotes and botanical remnant rubs and that fabulous ( fabulous was also the word I chose) authentic shadow press set. One of the things I love about these challenges is that I get to play with so many of my Tim toys :) ! I used my Tim heart die and some other ideology findings!
Oh yes and the crinkle ribbon... I so love colorizing this ribbon. I also used my spritzer... fun fun !
I even pulled out some stickles.
I had some special help with my tag we had company the weekend so I taught them how to do the rose ( you know they wanted to do one).
I can't give you instructions but I can tell you I'm getting better at this ... yay me :) !
Well that's it for now. Go check out the work of my fellow Tim-ites ( is that a word? I don't know... but you know what I mean ... right?) . These are some creative people as well. I've seen some very cool projects... this is only #3... this journey is going to be amazing!
Oh let's see if Inspiration Emporium link will come up now ... http://www.inspirationemporium.com/... yay it worked this time ... so go visit them too ... okay?!
