The Lovely Linda over at Studio L3 has asked us this week to turn to page 44 of the Compendium of Curiosities book II, follow the instructions and put the technique to use. Well, as Christmas is lurking ever closer this technique was crying out for me to play with some recently acquired stamps to let them play!
Here is the first one using Pine Needles, Pumice Stone and Walnut Stain DIs on cream cardstock. I then used some Christmas paper and punched a strip using my EK Success 2in1 punch adding some stickles to add a touch of sparkle. punched a label to add a sentiment on edging with Fired Brick DI.
And for the second stamp I used Coffee Archival ink, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain DIs on white cardstock. For the background papers I used some glassine and alcohol inks and then layered this onto some more Christmas Bo Bunny card and wrapped some fibres tying them in a bow. Both stamps are Inkadinkado.
Loved the look of this technique and can see some more Christmas cards coming up using this technique. Thanks Linda!
There is still time if you wish to join in with this technique. You just need to ensure you have Mr Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities II book and play along. Don't forget to pop along to Tim Holtz's website for more ideas and how tos.
