Compendium of Curiosities, Week 14!

StudioL3 is still giving us these really hard challenges. You know, the ones where we have to CRAFT!!!! lol and we are on Week 14? WOW moving right along aren't we?

So here is my take on masking. I've done this before and I love the way it comes out.




I used two TH masks for this one, the small flourish and the crown, inked the tag with several different DI colors. Spritz it with my perfect pearls mix, stamped the sentiment and the




butterflies. Stamped words on the flower and attached it with a loopy brad (hammered), which is also holding the blessings charm. Added a photo corner to the bottom (hammered). Used his tissue tape to make the 'ribbon' at the top, and finished it with some glossy accents on the butterflies. Did I miss anything? lol {yes as a matter of fact I did, I brushed some scattered straw stickles onto the flower petals.}

Thanks Linda for making this so much fun.
