CC3 Challenge # 16

Is it just me ... or are you feeling it too ... time is flying by ... it's December already !!
How was your Thanksgiving? Hope you had a Blessed one. Well time to get in gear for Christmas... are you getting in the spirit ? Well if not maybe a peak at what Linda and the Curiosity Crew has in store might help you! I tell you those ladies are so talented... and the versatility is amazing ( something for everybody).
Speaking of everybody... did you join in the fun yet? Okay we are at Challenge # 16... come on you can do it... visit Linda Ledbetter 
http://lindaledbetter.com/2014/11/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-16.html ., she's got complete easy to follow guidelines ; a link to the amazing Tim Holtz so you can purchase his book  A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III ... don't forget you can get it autographed too . Now if you have yours already but you want some company on this amazing journey gift a copy to one of your friends; invite them to join you. Tell them Tim and Mario have goodies ... should you be the Curiosity Crew's Choice Award Recipient ... if that does not get them tell them our sponsors this week are  The Funkie Junkie  Boutique  http://www.thefunkiejunkie.com/  , they could win a $25 shopping spree. Now they will probably tell you they wouldn't know what to create or where to start ... not a problem ... tell them while they are at Linda's site they can see projects  done by the Curiosity Crew ... it's fabulous inspiration ! All they have to do is visit each one's blog; show them some love ( so easy to do... cause they will want to tell them how awesome their projects are) and then they'll be eligible for prizes. Can't get any easier than that !
Okay ... so while you brush up on your recruitment skills I'll share my project...
This week is Challenge # 16  Layering Stencil Embossing found on p.50
OMG... this is so amazing... I don't want to get in trouble ... let me just say the technique is so easy and the results are amazing ...



The above photo is of my other  new Tim toys, I used Christmas framelit, , labels thinlit ,  and handwritten Christmas Stamps .




I used  the Holiday Knit and the Speckles  stencils and some of my other new Tim toys . I'm showing you the above photo so you can see my background. I used worn lipstick, fired brick and barn door distressing inks. I just love this color palette.


This photo is showing the other elements of my tag. I had so much fun using the stencils with texture paste and foil sheets ... way cool !!! You'll have to look close at the finished tag to see the details ... OMG ... with the help of Tim toys I worked some magic !

Well I've probably told you to much ( hope not ... I couldn't help it) ... but I do hope you enjoyed it.
Have I  convinced you yet ?? Come on join us...
Alright ... don't forget to visit the Curiosity Crews blogs, let them know you enjoy their work ! I'm going back to play...

Oh, Thank you again Linda and Curiosity Crew for choosing me for  the Curiosity Crew's Choice Award for Challenge # 15 . I am HONORED !!!

  1. I just love this one, Rea! I love predominantly red on Christmas things set against the greenery of the season. Your technique is beautifully done with the Holiday Knit stencil (gotta have that!!) and with the poinsettias, just perfect. Congratulations on being the Curiosity Crew Choice on the last challenge. You're an artist, girl!!! <3

  2. Cheryl you are soooooo kind... Thank you for All your encouragement along the way ! Yes you need that stencil ... I didn't want it until I saw Tim use it on a little muslin bag ... too cute ! Funny ... as I start the tag ... that was not the total planned color palette but I fell in love with it so I didn't add the other colors!

  6. Hi Rea. Congrats on your recent win!!! :) This new tag is also very pretty. Tim's Holiday Knit is such a versatile and fun stencil. I love it done in the holiday red! The poinsettias and the "tis the season" sentiment really compliments your layered and stenciled background. Thanks so much for joining us at CC3C. <3 Candy
