Today I wanted to create something just for fun and decided to break open a few new products and some trusty old ones too. It's also been a while since I participated in a challenge so today I am indulging myself and playing just for me and joining in with the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 22, and the challenge this time around is to use Tim's Dimensional Cutting Pad, page 62 of Volume lll. The Curiosity Crew have created fabulous pieces to inspire you along your journey too.The Funkie Junkie Boutique is sponsoring this weeks challenge and there is also a fantastic prize courtesy of Tim and Mario too. I would also like to enter this piece into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is anything goes.Simon Says Stamp are offering a fabulous prize as always, thank you.
Eileen Hull's Cube/Block die, combined with Tim Holtz products and Wendy Vecchi's Archival Embossing Powders, I am in love with these! I began by adding Cracked Pistachio and Gathered Twigs Distress Paint to a non-stick craft sheet and spritzing with water and then mopping up the paint with my card and then drying with a heat tool.
Candy some time ago and this seemed the perfect project for it! Thanks Candy. I added a touch of clear Tar Gel to the dome (a new addiction, thanks Lesley), which you can just make out here, the clear runs down the dome, love these and they add a touch more texture to the design. I also added Remnant Rubs Words to the dome along with some rusty wire. I added a mini butterfly to the inside of the dome, die cut using the mini butterfly movers and shapers die, coloured with Potting Soil Archival Ink and sprinked with Tree Branch embossing powder. I also included a second salvaged doll.
Art With Heart but this fits perfectly and I thought it was the perfect way to end the challenge and there are still a couple of days left to enter!
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you enjoy this project as much as I did creating it. x x x
