COMPENDIUM OF CURIOSITIES \ 13


Hi,

Its that time again for the lovely Linda's C/C. This week its page 65.

Now this may look like a card, but its not........its a Book Cover, which has had gesso, torn page, inked with various Tim Holtz distress inks and also used Black Paint dabber for a majority of the stamping. Moon Girl by Stampotique has been clear embossed. The other stamps used are Debbi Moore, Darcies and Kelly Panacci........and of course the Grunge Flower which I had to cut out, as the Tim Holtz dies are out of stock still.......the centre is a silver button which has had black paint dabber used on it then partly rubbed off.

I need to thank Wendy at the Stamp Attic for letting me know that Moon Girl was back in stock, as had been after this stamp for ages and ages.

Compendium of Curiosities - page 65
The Stampman - Distress
Sunday Stamper - All kinds of Everything
Paper Sundaes - Mixed Media
Pile it On - Layers
Creative Spirit - Open

Wow thats a lot of challenges........... Thank you for popping by and hope you like my Book Cover, Take care, Annette x

Ooh and it's lovely, Netty. Love the colours and can just imagine the contrasts the dabber has made - I love my black dabber. Lovely colours in the background, too - one of my favourite colour combos.
