Grunge goes Pretty - CC2C Challenge 14

Hello Peeps

Tonight I am sharing with you my piece for the Compendium of Curiosities II Challenge.  The Lovely Linda asked us to turn to page 39 of Vol 2 of Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities book and follow the instructions which involve glassine and alcohol inks.  I cannot share the technique with you so you will have to purchase the book!  This week the Challenge is sponsored by the lovely people at The Funky Junkie Boutique! There is a prize of $25 worth of goodies!

Here you can see where I have used the glassine, mixing it with pretty papers to make a flower to go on a box.
Some beading too, as well as some pearls around the scalloped circle.  

And here is what is going inside the box, to give to my Quilting Group as a raffle prize for our Annual Summer Hope Lunch.  I have been making raffle prizes for a few years now and usually my raffle prize goes first.  Let us hope this prize goes down well with the Group.

Don't forget you have time to join in the Challenge as it doesn't close until Thursday.  

Thanks for looking and please leave me a comment so I know you have been. 

See you all soon.

Hi Samantha, I love your box and the flower is just gorgeous. I think it looks much better mixed with pretty paper, I did a plain one and did not enter as I was not happy with it - maybe next time! Thanks for stopping by my blog and your lovely comment. Anne x

I'd definitely pick it if I won the raffle! (Assuming the other prizes weren't, say, a million pound crafting voucher) It's really pretty - love the flower and beads.
