A Compendium of Curiosities - Challenge No. 4 - Faded Layers



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.
This week's challenge was to follow the technique
on page 43 and create something making 'Faded Layers'.
Here's what I used to make mine

I followed the technique to make the tag.
For the background card, I just wiped some Distress Ink
onto the craft sheet, spritzed with water
and swiped the card over it a few times -
then used a mask and inked over that. 
 I made it into a card.


I never like making cards, so by following Linda's
challenges I can mount whatever I make onto
a card - result!

Thanks for looking :)

The background is my favorite element in this tag/card. You came up with such a great effect by using a simple method. Great!
