Compendium of Curiosities III -Stamps and Framelets

Two weeks just f-l-e-w by! We are still playing in the book by Tim Holtz  and our hostess is the fabulous Linda Ledbetter, And our sponsor is Inspiration Emporium who is supplying a winner with a $50 gift card!

This week our challenge is on page 63. It's Tim's fabulous Stamps and Framelets set. I decided to get started on my Christmas decorations. I used one of Tim's burlap panels as my starting point. I distressed the edges with some Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I added some Festive Berries Distress Glitter to Multi Medium and applied it thru Tim's new Festive stencil. There's also a bit of shimmer from Perfect Pearls. My ribbon was dyed with Iced Spruce.

12 tags of 2010-August

It's time once again for Tim's 12 tags of 2014. You can find his sample tag here.

I wanted to play with Dina's All The Gals stamp set, so that was my starting point. I used a few of the words from the stamp set as well. I used the film strip to highlight one of the words. 

My fingers are inky and I am happy!

Compendium of Curiosities III-Faded Layers

It's time once again for the Compendium of Curiosities III, hostessed by the wonderful Linda Ledbetter on her blog. You can find all the details here. As always, we are working out of the book of the same name by Tim Holtz . And this week our sponsor is The Funkie Junkie and they are providing a $25 gift certificate to one lucky player.

This challenge is on page 58 if you are following along.

I started by making my tag according to Tim's directions in the book. I LOVE his Bigz Butterfly die, so I decided to use it again for this project. I also added some greenery and one of Tim's bows.
