CC3 Challenge # 32

WOW ... I can't believe it we are almost done ... I've been here 32 times ... so amazing. As I read over Linda's post , I reflected on the challenges ... I went back and looked at All of my projects ... I could not believe I've COMPLETED 31 projects  ( 32 now ) !

So for the 32nd time , I'd like to invite you to visit the charming Linda Ledbetter over at Studio L3
http://lindaledbetter.com/2015/07/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-32.html ; now if you have not been there yet, be sure to check out her guidelines so that you get an understanding of what CC3 is all about  http://lindaledbetter.com/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-faq and our guidelines.
 Our journey is through the pages of Tim Holtz's  Compendium of Curiosities Volume III.

We have had two amazing sponsors on this Journey . Our sponsor this time around is The Funkie Junkie http://www.thefunkiejunkie.com/ with a fabulous $25 shopping spree  for the chosen winner.
Now to add even more fun to our Journey Linda Ledbetter's friends aka The Curiosity Crew has jumpstarted us once again with there amazing projects. So if you are stuck and don't know what to do ... or if you are like me and the creativity fairy went on vacation ... visit them for some inspiration :) While you are there show them some love and it will qualify you for the Curiosity Crew's Choice Award.

Tim and Mario have equipped Linda with some awesome goodies to award to some lucky winner !

Now to be a winner you'll need your own copy of Tim Holtz's book A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III . Don't have one ?? Visit my charming friend at  Tim Holtz.com http://timholtz.com/ he'll even autography it for you . Pssst ... he's doing sneak peaks right now ... CHECK THEM OUT !!!

Okay so you read the guidelines ... you know NONE of us are going to give you detail instructions ! Open your book to page 59  FROSTED FILM ... yep that's our CC3 Challenge # 32 ...

OMG ... I was just about all finished and the thought occurred to me ... it looks so much like some other tag  I've  done .. oh no !!! WHEW... I checked ... just similar ...





For my tag I was twisted, abandoned and fossilized, and layered with burlap, doilies and wildflowers !!!  LOL ... translation  ... I used  twisted citron, abandoned coral and fossilized amber distressing inks on my background and  I used burlap, doily and wildflower layering stencils.
I used the distress marker spritzer with black soot and back stitching to add interest. Check out the crazy rick rack ribbon from Tim's natural, black /cream trimmings ... goes just fine with my whimsical frosted film flowers don't you think ?! As you can see it was all about fun !

Other Tim Holtz product used  tattered florals die , mini butterfly die, spring greenery decorative strip die ;  hashtags stamp set, watercolor stamp set  and  clear stamps phrases 2 . Embellishments included a muse token and ribbon, and flower brads and min safety pin from my stash.

 I'm feeling a little looney and silly after intense work on wedding decorations/plans hope you enjoyed your visit ! Don't forget to visit the Curiosity Crews blogs and show them some love... remember they can't hear you ooos and aahs... See you next time !

  2. Sweet tag, lady! Those frosted flowers are so delicate and pretty. I love the pin on your butterfly. The stitching around the border is actually genius, it completely frames and defines the entire piece. LOVE!!! Thanks for being a faithful CC3Cer. ;-)

  3. Rea...this is such a lovely tag! Those frosted flowers are amazing. They remind me of a fine porcelain or a fragile frosted glass flower! Beautiful background and the stitching just pulls everything together so perfectly! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
