#CC3C - Faded Layers

I just completed my entry for Challenge #8! There's still time to play along, check out Linda Ledbetter's blog for all the details. The sponsor for this challenge is The Funkie Junkie Boutique, one lucky player will be randomly selected to receive a $25 shopping spree.

The faded layers technique is on page 58 of Tim's book, A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3. This is a new technique for me. I started by experimenting with a variety of colors on numerous pieces of cardstock. Once I decided what I was going to create I used Tim's technique on the background. I also used some of the other pieces of colored cardstock for the sea horse, seashell and greenery. Thanks for stopping by!
