CC2 Challenge # 17

Compendium of Curiosities II
Challenge # 17 Creative Core'dinations

Yay ... I'm participating in Challenge # 17 on Linda's blog Studio L3 www.studioL3.com from Tim Holtz's Book Compendium of Curiosities Volume II. Linda's friends over at Simon Says Stamp www.simonsaysstamp.com are sponsoring this weeks challenge and some lucky participant ( hope it's me) will receive a $25 gift certificate to shop at their store... how cool is that!
On to my project ... following the instructions on p. 61 of Tim's book ( you know if you don't have it you need to get one... it's soooo cool ), I created this card. It was so much fun. Working with core'dinations is amazing!
I had fun pulling out some of my other Tim "goodies" and tools that I had not used for a bit.

I used my Tim texture hammer, antique mini fasteners, joyful muse token and flowers and ribbon from "lavish".  I used that pretty green from the Kraft-Core  Nostalgic Collection (Core'dinations). I used frayed burlap distressing ink for the card and Victorian velvet distressing ink to colorize my ribbon and flowers. To support my "use what I have campaign" , I used my bird and stick pin  from Brenda Walton Flora and Fauna Collection / ephemera pack and decorative pins ( K&Company) . Did you notice the pin has bling? ... my signature you know !
Sorry you did not see it in the first photo ( I forgot the pin ... did not notice until it was submitted) oh well ! I 'm glad I made the decision to play along. I've already started another card... told you it was fun. See you next time!


  1. Your card is a beauty! Love the colors and all of the details.
