Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #19

Well, it's time to post the next installment in the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over at Linda's blog - Studio L3

This is one of the 'funner' ones I've done so far...Extreme Masking, page 61 of Tim's book Compendium of Curiosities (which you can get at Tim's website AND you can purchase an autographed copy). Linda says that you may omit step 5 if you would like, but I think that is a really kewl effect, so I did it!

This week I really only ended up with one halfway decent picture, so I hope it's good enough.



I didn't use a whole lot of different stuff on this one. Peeled paint, faded jeans and fired brick DIs. Two of the masks are Tims and the third I die cut using his die. Spritzed after drying with pearls spray (I made it) then did the optional step with a music stamp I've had forever. The bos tie on the bird is from a stick pin I disassembled for my halloween costume this week and then I used the tiny attacher to put those word thingys on there. I think that's it....oops, no, I used some coordinating stickles for the eye and accents. thanks for looking!

Love how you used the birdie for your masking! The scarf is a perfect little embellishment.

Yes the scarf is a lovely addition. I like how your colors blended. I am sure it looks even cooler in real life with the pearly shimmer. The whole card is wonderful.

Yelowflower, this is spectacular! Wow, those colors are vibrant and beautiful, and your extreme masking couldn't be more perfect! What a cool and unique Christmas card. The little bird looks so dapper with his crown and bow.

I'm so glad you had fun with the technique!
