Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #24

Hello and welcome! I'm back with a tag using the Remnant Rub Resist technique by the one and only Tim Holtz. I can't go into detail about the technique, rules are rules. Turn to page 51 of Tim's latest book. Don't have it? You can get a copy from Tim here. I can tell you though that I used lots of distress stain! To get the skinny on this challenge check out Linda Ledbetter's blog post. The Funkie Junkie Boutique, love this store, is back to sponsor challenge #24 with a $25 shopping spree for one luck entry. Thanks for stopping by!

B is for . . .

The challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week is to use this letter as inspiration or share what B stands for in your crafting. Check out the Monday Challenge Blog for all the details.

For my project B is for birthdays! I started by coloring a piece of manila cardstock with distress spray stain. I stamped one of the birds from Bird Crazy and "happy birthday" from Handwritten Sentiments on the manila cardstock. Next I stamped the bird again on watercolor paper, colored him with distress inks and cut out. For the balloon I used a punch, kraft-core cardstock, sandpaper, distress ink and string. I then adhered the bird and balloon to the manila cardstock. To finish I attached it all to a A2 card created from kraft-core cardstock. I gotta say, that bird makes me smile. This stamp set is definitely one of my favorites from Tim's latest release. Thanks for stopping by!
