I'm following the challenges being set by the lovely Linda
on her blog Studio L3 working from Tim Holtz' new book
A Compendium of Curiosities Volume II.
I must own up to missing the second challenge as I
didn't have two of the products used - I know I could
have improvised, but opted out
(sorry again Terry - lol!!)
To my utter dismay for this third challenge again I didn't have
the main ingredient - Picket Fence Distress Stain.
I wasn't going to let that stop me this week though!
I chose the lightest shade of Distress Stain I had - being
Spun Sugar - and using the technique on page 46
of Tim's Holtz' book created my own 'Marble Stains' effect
as shown on the tag in the photo above.
I don't think I really achieved the marble look,
but it's quite a nice background nevertheless.
I made it into an Artist's Trading Card
The figure is moulded in air dry clay
modelled on my own fair figure - well, it could have been!
It's actually from Krafty Lady Art Moulds.
I stamped the word 'Belle' and edged the card
with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
This week's challenge is sponsored by
who are generously offering a $25 gift certificate
to one lucky participant.
You've got to be in it to win it -
now where have I heard that before!
