OMG It's Here....CCC3 1st Challenge

I cannot tell you how excited I am that the amazing, fabulously talented, Linda Ledbetter has once again volunteered to host a challenge featuring Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities 3rd book.  She has all the details on her blog- check it out!

This weeks challenge is to use the Marbled Paint technique - you can find all the information on the technique on page 43 of Tim's Book.  If you click HERE,  you can get your own autographed copy!  This very first challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium - they are also offering a gracious discount on your supplies...  Check them out!

Now onto my entry for the challenge:

I loved this technique.  I used 4 different colors of Distress Paint:  Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, and Peacock Feathers.  This was a 2nd generation attempt through the colors, so the result was a little muted.  Here is picture of the 1st attempt at the technique:

I embellished the tag with all things Tim Holtz:  TH paper, tissue tape, a ticket, chit chat stickers, some TH stamps, twine, crinkle ribbon, and ideology.  I also added one of my new favorite finds, flowers from Wild Orchid Flowers.

Thank you for checking out my tag....
