CCC week 23 - Double the fun...Distressing

Week 23 took me to one of my favorite techniques. To check it out - go to page 40 in Tim Holtz's book, Compendium of Curiosities. I can't give you the details here - that would spoil all the fun. I used a Cuttlebug music embossing folder, all the blue distress inks I had in my drawer, Symphony tissue tape, and one of my favorite all-purpose saying stamps. The art going up on Linda's Studio L3 is simply amazing - do yourself a real favor and zip on over for a look-see. You will NOT be disappointed. Then, if you are up to it - join the challenge and starting having fun with the rest of us.

Happy Thanksgiving to all

CCC Week 22 - Alcohol Ink Splatter

It is week 22, over at the incredible Linda's Studio L3. Hop on over to check out the scoop on all the fun we are having. This week was a blast. I have to tell you - splatter, shimmer, AND fun. This has got to be my favorite technique of Tim Holtz, Compendium of Curiosities, so far. I used every color of green Alcohol Ink I could find to help with my 'forest'. At first I thought I really blew it with the metallic AI, but when I got my forest stamped, I realized the silver looks a bit like a planned full moon - don't ya think? Hope you are enjoying the challenges as much as I, and Thank you for checking out my blog this week. Enjoy everyone.

CCC Week 21 - Perfect Distress

Week 21, Thanksgiving on the horizon, and Christmas will be here before you know it. However - here in the desert we are still having beautiful weather and I thought I'd stamp some flowers as a reminder of why I love living here! Perfect Distress was the theme this week. Kind of an odd name for something so messy, hard to photograph, and what I found to be anything but perfect! I did love the technique and used Peeled Paint distress ink as well as green and blue patina powders. To get the real details on the technique - Buy Tim's book. To learn all about the amazing Linda and her challenge, hop on over to Studio L3 to see what the buzz is all about. What are you waiting for? Join in all the fun.
