Compendium of Curiousities 2 challenge #26

Two challenges in a roll! Woo hoo!! I wanted to make a card for a friend who just beat cancer (praise the Lord!!) She has been through so much but is now okay! We are celebrating. The CC challenge over at Linda's blog Studio L3 was the perfect opportunity. Each week she features a technique out of the pages of Tim Holtz's book A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2. This week it was Crumpled Kraft Suede on page 40. I incorporated the "suede" as the green background paper behind the flowers and shapes:

This week there is a prize hosted by The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I encourage you to go look at all the cool artwork people have been linking up at Studio L3. It's inspiring!


  1. Just in time!!! So so cute, love that background!!! The flowers just pop!!!

  2. That's so clever Lisa. Love that you have used two colour palettes on your crumpled suede. It works so well. Hugs, Buttons x

  3. Beautiful card there Lisa and well done to your Friend. I have two good friends who are just at the start of their treatment and want to make something similar to yours so thanks for the inspiration.
    Thanks for visiting.

  4. What a fabulous card! Did you emboss on top of the crumpled kraft suede?

  5. The embossing on the faux suede is so gorgeous... love the whole card, but that part is just WOWZA!
