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 Inspiration Emporium 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 38 of the book and playing with Cabinet Cards. As ever 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.
For my entry I chose a seasonal Found Relative card to pop into my Cabinet Card... let's call them Jimmy and Muriel... they are muchly in lurves and this photo was taken on their first holiday together when they visited Minneapolis for a romantic weekend... hey, I went to Minneapolis once! I was there for about three hours whilst I changed planes on me way to CHA last year... wow... I am a gad-about aren't I? All I remember is that is was thick of snow and freeeeezing cold!
Anyways... Jimmy and Muriel decided to remember their
I got a little carried away with the embellishmentising as usual - the top left signifies... "when you wish upon a star..." and the two is them together... awwww... see, you didn't know I was a soppy old romantic did ya? Of course, I had to have my harlequin stamp somewhere so that is stamped using Black Archival on the card itself. The rest of the goodies are Tim's Remnant Rubs, Idea-ology and Ephemera packs. I used Distress Spray Stains to make my taggy background... Antique Linen and Broken China with a spritz of Tarnished Brass and then a spot of stencilling using Tim's hearts stencil...
That's all for now - don't forget, you have two whole 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
