Getting Crazy with the Compendium of Curiosites Challenge #3 – Altered Surfaces

I can't believe there is only one more CC challenge after this one! What a fun time it has been. Thank you Linda (at the Studio L3 blog) and the Curiosity Crew for hosting and inspiring us with all these wonderful challenges. All techniques come from the Tim Holtz book, A Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 3. This current challenge's technique is found on page 45 of the book. I can't share it, but I can tell you it's crazy fun! Speaking of crazy, have you seen all the fun new stamp sets that go with the popular Crazy Bird stamps? I got my hot little hands on them and the totally awesome Bird Crazy dies too and created a crazy fun birthday card for my youngest son:


His name is Jon (hence the "J") and he turned 9 (hence the "9"). These little crazy birds are all set to celebrate and wish him a happy birthday. ;-) This is what you call a loaded card. I'm glad I don't have to mail it – it is chunky and heavy! I altered the metal J, the foil tape covered scalloped border and the Alpha Parts 9.

Thanks to the Inspiration Emporium for sponsoring the prize for this challenge. Be sure to hop on over to Studio L3 and see all the wonderful inspiration from the Crew and entrants.
