Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #35

Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #35

This is the last of the CCC and we are sure going to miss them. I know that Linda has more fun stuff up her sleeve, but it can't be the same...or can it?

Anyhoo, this is a card I made for the CCC#35....Design Details for Studio L3, presided over by the Awesome Linda!!! These challenges have come straight from the mighty Tim Holtz new book, A Compendium of Curiosities (which you can get here) and I must say these have been fun. I never did take part in a challenge prior to these and I am SO glad I did!!!! I am also going to enter this one at All Things Tim and at Simon Says Stamp and Show (which I didn't know until just now when I went to see what their challenge was this week - metal, works for me)

So, here we have the Back of my front lol (I almost always do a 'front' that is a quarter inch smaller than the card, that way I can have items which would otherwise show on the inside of the card, like brads and stitching.) I just wanted you to see how kewl it looks, nothing like the front, but I think it's neat.

Then here is the overall finished card

And then there are a couple of the design elements....I am almost ashamed to say that pretty much, the DI in Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint are about all the Tim stuff I used! Oh wait!!! I used alcohol inks on the letters!!!! Whew, I feel better now! lol

Here we have a bingo piece from a very old childs game.
This is showing the details of the letters, which started out bright shiney silver and i applied various shades of alcohol inks to obtain that look.
Here you can see the stitching which is done with a holiday thread with real metal in it...
This is a piece of ribbon from my stash, started out pink, but then it got a dose of Antique Photo and a spritz of water
Here you can see one of my 'smashed' brads
a few more smashed brads

and that's it, my last CCC card. sad I think, but now I'm looking forward to what else Linda has in store for us. See you next week!!!!
