COMPENDIUM OF CURIOSITIES 6 - MULTI MEDIUM COLLAGE


Hi,

For the first time ever since I entered into Linda's challenges I actually had the product....wow, so you can imagine how pleased I was, although had used it in a different way, so again a new way for me......ooh love these challenges. The technique can be found on Page 66 of T Holtz, Compendium of Curiosities (I am really loving this book), for some great creations from very talented crafters using this technique please visit Linda's blog Studio L3

My collage is called 'You're Invited', a little bit quirky but great fun to do.

I used a T Holtz embossing folder and used metal magic and enamel embossing powders on it, plus T Holtz Distressing Inks.

The Stamps used: Joanna Sheen, Inkadinkado and Crafty Individuals, which I clear embossed.
I hope you like it and it brings a small smile to your face.

Thank you for all your good wishes re my little problem, but now have the correct tablets and also booked in for an X Ray, so I will be fit for anything soon............wicked........... Annette x
