recently I stopped by Linda Ledbetter blog, there's a great challenge going on there based on Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities 3 book. And of course when we talking Tim Holtz and Compendium of Curiosities I just can't be not inspired ...
as the challenge rules state, I can't share with you the technique, but I guess I can say that I was in the mood for some recycling, so as a base I used craft paper bag the rest are some Tim's supplies (stencil, paint, stamps, die, ) and embossing powder. I actually was a bit amazed with the result, it turned out much better than I anticipated. Also I noticed that the embossing powder reacted with the craft paper creating contour around the paint, it looks like very fine shadow effect,so awesome... I wonder if I can achieve it on other craft surfaces
after that few more ideas and I came up with card made from Ranger manila tag
P.S. thank you for stopping by ^.^ wish you crafty inspiration
