Alright you ready ? Challenge #7 is found in Tim Holtz's A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III
p. 46 Painted Industrial !
I won't give you any detailed instructions but I will tell you the technique is so very cool!
OMG... fun, fun ,fun ! I had company for this Challenge ... I chose to use my Julie Nutting Doll Stamp "Priscilla" . One of my missions in doing the challenges is to use my "stash" and my tools that I have so nicely accumulated . Miss Priscilla was one of my UFO's (unfinished objects) ... she fit in so well with this challenge don't you think ? Steampunk anyone ?
I had gotten this cool textured paper from Michael's that I wanted to try for her outfit ; then I decided I needed to do something interesting for her stockings; so I used my Tim Burlap Stencil, a mini blending tool and distressing ink ( I believe I used salty ocean ... it was on my table... this was a spur of the moment decision ) . I added small floral brads to her boots and her hat ...
Now I needed to pull this together so I visited the Queendom stash and found a small photo from Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante, added some Tim Holtz embellishments, a little black netting and braid trim sand we "hooked" Priscilla up... she's good to go !
Thanks for visiting I do hope to see you again! I am still working on the Bluetooth issue... I seem to have found a temporary solution ( after spending 45 mins with a tech guy at ATT & T.
Bottomline... my phone is "old" their updates did not support my system ! Translation : gonna have to invest in another phone that will accommodate my desires ... hummm ...
Last time the temporary fix lasted a little under an hour... gotta go bluetooth some other stuff before it stops again ... see you next week. :)
