ALTHEA - DO NOT LOOK!!!!!
This is for Studio L3 The Compendium of Curiosities techniques from Tim Holtz Book, All Things Tim and Simon Says Stamp & Show.
So, please open your Compendium of Curiosities to page 34, where you'll find Mr. Holtz's Scribble Stain Distress instructions!
I'm not too sure about this technique...it looks so easy and then it isn't, lol, but I tried my best and am not really too unhappy with how it turned out. This also works with Simon Says Stamp and Show as it is most definitly remenicent of yesteryear.
I used Faded Jeans, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress inks and an assortment of stamps from Tim's collection as well as one - the woman with the dogs, from Viva Las Vegasstamps. I made the little lace flower embellishment and attatched it with a Hot Off The Press brad. This is my SIL birthday card for next week, so don't tell her - OK?
Again let me thank the wonderful people who make these fun challenges available. Linda at StudioL3, Gloria at All Thngs Tim and the great folks at Simon Says Stamp & Show. And of course, the King of Grunge Himself, Tim Holts! All links are available at the bottom of this post.
