Compendium of Curiosities III - Challenge 4

Thank you to my latest followers, it is a real pleasure to have you along on my crafty journey!

It is time for Challenge #4 over at Linda Ledbetter's CC3C Challenge.  This fortnight is sponsored by the wonderful Linda Coughlin of The Funkie Junkie Boutique who is offering a $25 voucher to spend in her on-line shop.  Another lucky person will be chosen by the Curiosity Crew and that person will win a bumper bundle of Tim products, kindly given by Tim and Mario.

The challenge is to use Tim's Layering Stencil Technique : Texture Paste as found on Page 49 of the Compendium of Curiosities III.  I cannot explain the technique to you but here is my entry, which is a 7" x 7" card topper:



I used Peacock Feathers, Peeled Paint and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks for the base and I used Ranger's (Wendy Vecchi) white and black embossing pastes, following Tim's techniques.

The stencils I used were Clockworks, Cargo and Speckles and I did some over-stamping with Cornflower Blue Archival Ink using Tim's Ultimate Grunge set.




The sentiment is from the Good Thoughts stamp set and was stamped in Black Archival Ink.  Umbrella man was over-stamped with Picket Fence Distress Paint using a stamp from the Ultimate Grunge set.  It was a little bright so I toned it down with some Pumice Stone Distress Ink.

Thanks for looking, hope to see you again soon.  Hugs, Anne xx

  1. Sorry to have been so MIA for a while. I'm enjoying some surfing time this afternoon, and happy to see this brilliant TH card. Love the background and that black paste is striking in your design. So much texture & great color on this one, Miss Anne. Well done! You channel Tim like no one else! I hope he sees all the wonderful things you achieve with his products. I'm still looking for the book where I can use a coupon! TFS & Hugs

  3. Stencil heaven Anne! The blend of ink colours below and above the paste is superb and I love the way you've echoed the black and white stencilling with the stamping on Umbrella Man. An absolute winner of a topper and proof if it were needed that you can get a canvas look into a smaller space. Love it. Jenny xxx

  7. Oh! Anne, this is a stunner, I absolutely love it. The colours are just gorgeous, and the mix of black and white stencilled texture paste alongside the normal ink stencilling is spot on. Love the overstamping on Mr Umbrella man it gives him added interest. This topper is a perfect example of the challenge technique and looks like a winner to me. Mo x
