Compendium of Curiosities - Challenge No. 7 - Tinted Vision Fragments


This week's challenge set by Linda on her blog Studio L3 was to use a product I unfortunately don't have (yet!) - Fragments.  The technique to be used was detailed on page 55 of Tim Holtz' book Compendium of Curiosities and also used alcohol inks (which I do have - yay!!)

As I didn't want to miss out on the challenge I used the technique on another Ranger product - Frosted Memory Glass (with a Memory Frame).

As the glass is frosted it has an even more vintage look about it.


I used three colours of alcohol inks - Caramel, Rust and Latte.

I attached the frame to an ATC with the same images and aged the background with some Distress Ink.



The rubber stamp text is from PaperArtsy (Clocks 3 - C3) and is stamped with Mahogany Distress Ink.

There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs every week and if you are a Tim fan, Linda has some fabulous news about even more prizes to share which you can read all about on her blog!

Thanks for looking!

This is lovely and works just as well with the memory glass (- I'm just waiting for the week I don't have the right ingredients and I could have a tantrum!) Thanks for your visit and comment, Esther xx

Oh Sherry this is wonderful, I love it when an image is used twice in a project, and when it is done right like you've done it the result is stunning!
Fabulous :-)
