Linda over at Studio L3 has asked us to turn to P 41 of the Compendium of Curiosities Boo II for this week's Challenge and this week the Challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique with a prize of a $25 shopping spree. Now who wouldn't like a chance to win that with all the new goodies that Mr Tim Holtz and Ranger have released in recent months?
I am sneaking in by a cat's whisker as time seems to have passed me by this week for some reason! As usual we are not able to share the technique in respect to Mr Holtz but you can, of course, buy the book and join in the last 10 challenges of Linda's.
So without further ado...
Not done a tag recently for my challenges, but I do rather like this one. I think it will lend itself to going on a card for someone, but someone I am giving to as the post will be horrendous!
I have used a few new goodies on this tag.
(1) the product which we used for the challenge itself.
(2) antiqued bronze distress stain - LOVE IT!
(3) the Poinsettia die - LOVE THAT TOO! I was lucky enough to have a little go of Helen's die at The Crop and fell in love with it instantly.
I wish you could see this up close as the shimmer from the bronze distress stain and the perfect pearls mist is gorgeous. The poinsettia itself is made from some book pages which were adhered onto thin chipboard for previous projects and were in my Snippets box, hence the different types. I can see a french novel and a dictionary page there.
Thanks for popping by and please feel free to leave me a comment. I love comments.
