I'm on a roll, at least for making cards well ahead of the required occasion! That is a somewhat unusual occurrence for me but I'm trying to get better about it. I did fall way behind on the Compendium of Curiosities 2 challenges on the Studio L3 blog since I've been so crazy busy lately. I missed Challenge 3 - Marbled Stains and Challenge 4 - Faded Layers. The current challenge is to use Shattered Stains, as found on page 48 of the Tim Holtz book, A Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 2. These challenges have been so much fun and you have a chance to win a prize. This week's sponsor is Simon Says Stamp (www.simonsaysstamp.com).
Down to business, for my Father's Day card I combined Challenges 3, 4 and 5! (So I can say I'm caught up now right?) The base background is the Marbled Stains technique, background stamping used Faded Layers and of course the gears utilize the Shattered Stains method (which is so so cool).
I'm pretty sure my Dad never looks at my blog so this won't ruin the surprise. ;-) Here's a detail of the gears:
Well, enjoy the rest of your week and check out the other art people are doing for this over at the Sudio L3 blog. There is some fantastic inspiration over there!
