Last saturday began the first challenge of Compendium of Curiosities Vol. III. For the one’s whom are interested in joining should visit Linda Ledbetter‘s blog, we use Tim Holtz book for inspiration, every two weeks we pick another challenge and create our interpretation. This week was paint marbling and here is my creation, a tag:
As we agreed, we don’t share the technique, but in a few steps that I can show you, first I used a size #10 manila tag, I colorized with paint marbling technique.
For the flower embellishments, I used Tim’s mini tattered floral set and his mini branch and leaf set. I loved his Shabby Springtime Floral Pin, so I tried to make my interpretation of it. First I cut my leaves, branches and flowers from cardboard, colorized with distress paint and as I can’t live without beeswax, I dipped my colorized cardboard die cuts into beeswax.
Then I cut my flowers from burlap and deco fabric.
And finally I printed a copyright free vintage image on self-adhesive canvas, I applied my canvas on chipboard, and I cut my floral petals. Finally I colorized them with distress ink.
I arranged my flowers, branches and leaves on my tag. I used Tim’s washer border die to make a decoration stripe to my tag.
I added a butterfly ephemera and some shades to my tag. The text comes from Tim Holtz’s Chitchat seasonal collection.
The challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium, where you can get most of your crafting supplies.
Hope you enjoyed my paint marbled card and my shabby tattered flowers.
