Compendium of Curiosities III - Challenge 7 - Painted Industrial

The latest challenge at Linda Ledbetter's Compendium of Curiosities is Tim's Painted Industrial technique which you can find illustrated on Page 46 of the Compendium of Curiosities III.

The Curiosity Crew will choose one winner who will receive a spectacular assortment of Tim's products, courtesy of Tim himself and Mario Rossi, his business manager.

As this is an odd numbered challenge the sponsor this time will be Inspiration Emporium who are offering a fantastic $50 Gift Certificate to one lucky CC3C entrant.

As I have just received my fantastic new Tim Holtz large butterfly die and Gothic stencil I was keen to do something which combined both.  The butterfly is huge and the stencil is one of the most beautiful ones that Tim has created (in my opinion)!

I cannot of course, tell you how I achieved the finish on the butterfly, you will need to read Tim's book to find out how, but here is what I created.


To create the background I coloured through the Gothic stencil with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and then used the same Distress Ink to colour around the edges of the card.  I matted this onto a piece of black card before adding it a white 7" x 5" card.


Here is a close up of the gorgeous butterfly, the detail on this butterfly is created by the embossing folder that comes with the butterfly die.


To finish off I used an Idea-ology arrow and charm and I added the word 'fly' from the Alpha parts Newsprint set of letters.

While you are here and if you have the time it is worth a visit to see the entry that Belinda Basson has added to this challenge, it is absolutely stunning!  Belinda has covered a whole dressmaker's dummy (yes, really!) with the Painted Industrial technique.... it is incredibly beautiful!

Thanks for your visit and I hope to see you again soon!  Hugs, Anne xx

    This has a beautiful elegant feel to it. It is as though a beautiful butterfly has alighted onto damask wallpaper in the parlour of a Victorian mansion - sorry, I do tend to get carried away at times LOL.
    Absolutely love the butterfly but it is the stencilled background which I cannot stop looking at.
    Beautiful!

  25. Oh Anne, thanks so much for the compliment about my dress form. I am really touched. I knew I needed the butterfly and embossing folder, it is on my wish list, but now that I see your creation it has moved up a notch to my NEED list together with the damask stencil you have used in the background. I feel some on line shopping coming on...our local stores just don't seem to be getting this stuff in. Thank you for the inspiration.

  31. Anne....your card is brilliant! I am still waiting to get my layered insects die cuts! Your card has made me even more impatient! :) I love your butterfly and your application of Tim's painted industrial technique on it. It's truly beautiful. And I love how you've left your card a bit more simple so that the beauty of your butterfly is what totally grabs your attention when you see the card. Your little arrow with the hanging heart charm is so sweet and adds a softness to the card. I love it! Thanks for sharing with all of us at CC3C. <3 Candy
