CC3 Challenge # 24 (#2)

Hi everybody ... It's me again . I'm having way too much fun with CC3 Challenges ! Have you joined us yet ?
CC3  is all about exploring Compendium of Curiosities Vol. III , Tim Holtz's book. Our hostess on this Journey is Linda Ledbetter over at Studio  L3  http://lindaledbetter.com/2015/03/cc3c24.html. She has so nicely outlined the guidelines for these  challenges . She also has some amazing friends aka The Curiosity Crew who have done some awesome projects to inspire and encourage us along the way. If you stop by her site you will see their fabulous work and get a chance to visit their blogs and show them some love. Psst ... if you show them some love you can be eligible for some awesome prizes; goodies from Tim Holtz. AND we have fabulous sponsors too ! Our sponsor this week is The Funkie Junkie Boutique http://www.thefunkiejunkie.com/ if you are chosen winner you receive a $25 shopping spree at their online boutique ... how cool is that?!
Okay so this week our Challenge #24 is Remnant Rub Resist found on p. 51 You get a treat this week I've done a second project ( actually the 4th project ... but I'm only sharing two )!
 I love remnant rubs so I got carried away experimenting...
This was way too cute not to share... I present my Remnant Rub Egg on a Tattered Floral Base

The photos do not do it justice... but it was so cute I had to share.  The last three photos are close ups so you can actually see my work on the egg . The beginning photos are the finished project. I could not figure out what to do for a base so I used my tattered floral and my poinsettia dies to cut flowers and I curl and distressed the edges to form a cradle and I added a  grunge board butterfly and ribbon.
 It was so fun to experiment ! That cracked pistachio and picked raspberry and abandoned coral made a very pretty combination.
Okay don't forget to visit the Curiosity Crews blogs and show them some love. You know what those other CC3 ers   are amazing too ... it's an amazing creative community ... check them out !

Okay ... I'm gone for real now ... see you next time !


  1. Rea', I thought your tag was amazing but you have taken it up a notch with this little masterpiece. What a wonderful way to decorate the egg, I love that it sits in the flower and the butterfly on the top is just the icing on the cake!

    Forgot to say, congratulations on your $50 win on #23 too, you will have lots of fun spending that! Hugs, Anne xx

  2. Thank you Anne ! It was fun to do... had never tried resist on the egg and then I embossed it too ( I forgot that detail) ... great experiment! See what CC3 does to you ... you get brave ! :)
    Can't wait to shop ... was hoping they'd have those crazy birds... out of stock .. bummer ... still gonna have fun !

  3. Oh Rea', these eggs are so sweet! How special they would look as a centerpiece on your Easter lunch table. Mmmm..... may have to borrow this idea. You are one creative lady!! <3

  4. Hello again Rea!! I love your little eggs! So fragile looking. Great use of the Remnant Rubs on these little beauties. I love your idea and like Cheryl, I may have to "borrow" it with Easter coming so soon. :) Thanks for sharing these with everyone at CC3C. <3 Candy

  5. Hi Candy ! Thank you ... glad you like the idea... have fun with it ! :)

  6. Oh, you clever girl. This little egg is so sweet! I wish I could see it in person too. Fantastic idea!

  7. Thank you Annette ! So funny I completed the remnant resist part ... I was experimenting ... then I got stuck... didn't know what to do with the egg; tried to find egg holder at thrift store ... could not find one so I decided to see if it would stand up in the flower viola !

  8. GIrl...this is amazing and SO fun!!! Now...who would have thunk? You that's who! I love love love that you incorporated the technique onto the egg!!! Fabulous! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C!!!
