Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #25


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.

You are so right about it looking easy and then "NOT." It was still fun and I love how yours turned out! Beautiful job and I won't say a word to your SIL! She will love this!

Kathy Eddy said...

I have to agree. It is easy, but it's also easy to over-do it and have to try again. Less is more with this one, for sure. Yours turned out great though.

Yay to you!! Congrats on winning this weeks goodies! So true about the technique..my scribble was way heavy-handed at first. I love your color combo.

Congratulations on your win!! I am in agreement that less is the best for scribble stain distress. Great piece you made.

I love this piece, Yelowflower! The colors are so rich and beautiful, and the "Enjoy LIfe" theme is the perfect way to begin 2011! And I LOVE those images!!

Huge congratulations on your CCC win! I hope you have a BLAST shopping at Simon Says Stamp, and can't wait to hear what you get!

Happy new year, sweetie!
