Gooooodly Morning to all you lovely Compendium-ers! Today sees the start of a
brand new Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge. To see all the details
on how to join in with the challenge, CLICK HERE. Also, if you pop across to Linda's blog, you will see all gorgeous creations that my talented teamies on the Curiosity Crew have made... well worth taking a cuppa and a packet of Digestives :O) The challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique this time... so you will have a chance of winning a very generous Gift
Certificate to spend there. As ever, Tim & Mario have very kindly
donated goodies for an extra prize... which will be awarded to the
"Curiosity Crew's Choice"... so you have two chances of winning fabby
prizes! If you haven't got your Compendium book just yet, you can order
a signed copy directly from the man himself... HERE. And... Linda has also done a FAQ page for you.. HERE it is... all the info you will need is listed there.
This week we are turning to Page 53 of the book and playing with Colored Crackle . Now, as usual with the Compendium Challenge neither I nor the Curiosity Crew will be posting the technique
instructions and participants must not do so either. We all want to
encourage people to buy Tim's awesome book; giving away the instructions
wouldn’t be fair to him. Linda will have no choice but to un-link any
entries that don’t follow this rule.
My entry this week is another tag to add to my collection. As ever, I won't be blabbing about the technique but I can tell you the colours I used on the snowman... which were Milled Lavendar, Broken China and Stormy Sky Distress Paints.
The tag itself was coloured with the same Distress Paints, smooshed and spritzed to get a nice washy effect and then overstamped with a script stamp and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink - I have, as usual, covered most of the background but if you look closely, it is there! Also appearing is my fave little harlequin stamp (well, I loves it so muchly) I added some frosty bits using Glossy Accents and Rock Candy Distress Glitter, I love the sparkles that shimmer with this glitter! The wordy bit is one of Tim's new thinlet dies - cut from Distress Core-dinations cardstock and adorned with a mini Idea-ology star.
I added another bit of sparkle using the snowflake from the Winter Wonder die I used for the snowman and frosted this with Pumice Stone Distress Glitter and popped a Gumdrop into the middle of it. Finishing touches are the tinsel and pom pom trims and fancy bow which started out as a cream ribbon and I dyed it with Distress Stain Sprays (which I am also in lurves with!)
That's all for now - don't forget, you will have two weeks to enter the challenge... and a bat at the chance of grabbing the Crew's Choice prize which is a mahooosive haul of stash donated personally by Tim & Mario... so if you are joining in, remember to comment on all the Crew's blogs and you will be in with a chance of winning that too *believe me, this is one gigantic pile of goodies*! I will just say a big thank you to every one of you who has taken part in the challenge so far, it has been great to visit your blogs and see your wonderful interpretations of the challenge themes! Thanks for looking, have an inky inspirational day! TTFN
