Let's Hear it for CC2C! Yeay!

Howdy there Peeps

The Lovely Linda has launched the CC2C (Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge) as of last Friday and I am very pleased to be able to join in this time round.  By the time I discovered the original CCC it had been going some time and so I didn't join in.  Then Linda organised the Grungy Monday so I was able to join in those which I thoroughly enjoyed and now I am pleased to be in at the start of CC2C.  And this week Simon Says Stamp are sponsoring the Challenge.  Woo Hoo!

I am not allowed to tell you what the technique is but I can tell you that it is to be found on Page 66 (lovely number!) and it involves home made stamps! 

So here it is.....



I have used a plethora of inky products including Distress Inks (Crushed Olive, Brushed Corduroy, Antique Linen, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Forest Moss), reinkers (cannot remember what colours as they were mixes I made for the Creative Chemistry 101 Class and included Perfect Pearls!), Pin, Embossing ink, embossing powder, distressing tool, sentiment stamp by Darkroom Door, nature stamps by Hero Arts.

I hope you can see the shimmer on this tag as it sure looks better in real life.

If you have the new Compendium of Curiosities, why not join in on the challenge?  It would be lovely to see you.

Loving this tag! Just gorgeous! that bow is adorable. Which is the handmade stamp? The butterfly?
I am really thinking about getting this book. Its just that there are so many things I want and I can't buy everything. Looking forward to seeing more from the book!

What a stunning tag, Sam. I love all the texture you've created and it certainly shimmers through my screen!!
I didn't succumb to Vol 2 although I have the first one so look forward to seeing all your creations from it.
Have a great weekend.
