Compendium of Curiosities 3 – Challenge 4
The CC3 Challenge no 4 is to use the technique from page
48 49- layering Stencil Monoprint Texture paste
I am really enjoying this challenge, each fortnight a technique from the book is randomly selected and you have to make a piece of artwork using that technique. The main rule being that you have to work from you own copy of the book (no sharing) and you cannot blog about how the technique is done. If you want to know more or take part yourself here is the link to Linda Ledbetters blog where you will find all the rules and information including details of some great prizes up for grabs from Tim & Mario and from challenge sponsors Inspiration Emporium and The Funkie Junkie Boutique
I seem to have a lot of friends with babies due around August time (I don’t know what was happening in November but there was certainly plenty of fireworks lol) and needed to get cracking with a few new baby cards which is probably why this card turned out the way it did.
I had a couple of practice attempts with the technique and noticed that the colours I was using would work really well for a “baby girl” card.
Have also just discovered Tim’s new Sizzix shadowpress debossing folders and I never tire of making roses using the Tattered floral die.
The die cut words are from Tonic’s sentiments range. and if I had had more time I would have grunged them a bit, they look a bit too shiney and flat, but a part from that I am really pleased with it. Love this technique .
One down seven to go !!!
Ooops , I don’t believe I have just done this. luckily I realised something didn’t look right as i was scrolling down the other entries to get to the linky. Yes, I have just made my card using the wrong technique. Challenge no 4 is page 49 NOT 48. I won’t repeat the names I have just called myself lol.
But what is it they say – one learns from ones mistakes , well hopefully I wont do that again. Good job I am needing a few cards .
CC£ Challenge no 4 attempt 2
Lets try a card for a boy this time.
I have 4 of Tim’s layering stencils so I tried the technique out on all of them to see which ones would work best for my card and ended up using three of them.
The rulers worked really well for my bow (sizzix bigz die)
The Teddy stamp, isn’t he gorgeous, is from Indigoblu and crowned with one of my plaster of paris embellishments blinged with Treasure Gold.The words again are from Tonic.
Well at least I am now prepared for any early arrivals
