Compendium of Curiosities #25

Cutting it a bit fine (again!) but I have only missed one so far, so I just had to make time!  For full details on the latest challenge check out the lovely Linda Ledbetter to see what Linda and the Curiosity Crew have given us for inspiration.  Challenge #25 is about using Frameworks and Tim Holtz demonstrates this on Page 64 of his Compendium of Curiosities III book. If you need a copy you can purchase one directly from Tim here.

As this is an odd numbered challenge it is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium who are generously donating a $50 prize, for one randomly selected individual, to spend in their on-line shop.  One very lucky individual, chosen by the Curiosity Crew will win a fabulous prize from Tim and Mario!

For my Compendium of Curiosities #25 entry I made a card.

As well as the Frameworks die, I also used some new goodies that Tim recently released.
I used the fabulous Butterfly Duo Die and Embossing Folder, Tim's new Pocket Cards and I used the burlap from the new Textured Surfaces Pack.

I did not take step by step photos of all the stages but you can see from the above that I stencilled some Kraft card with the Doily stencil and crackle embossing paste that I lightly coloured with 
Vintage Photo re-inker.  The Framework was cut from thick black card.
  I also used one of the Pocket Cards on top of the embossed surface.
The butterflies were cut from white card which I embossed with the Duo embossing folder.  I inked the top of the butterflies with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then painted the de-bossed areas with Peacock Feathers Distress Paint.  The Trinket Pins were coated with Peacock Feathers DP.
To finish off I added some corners from my stash which were painted with Peacock Feathers and Gathered Twigs Distress Paint, and one of Tim's Simple Sayings.
This is also my Design Team piece for Inspiration Journal and just as a reminder, if you buy anything from Inspiration Emporium and used my code Redanne, you will get 10% discount off your entire order.  Postage rates are extremely reasonable at $5 for the USA and $10 for international orders!

  Thanks for looking and I hope to see you again soon.  
Hugs, Anne xxx

  26. So beautiful Anne, as always. I love the layout and all the details are executed beautifully, evidenced by your painting the de-bossed areas of the butterflies, I wouldn't have thought of doing that. And the use of burlap in some areas of the framework is genius. Love it all!
    Hope your weekend is going well {{Hugs}} xox

  28. Oh look, and there was me thinking I wouldn't rush out to get the new surfaces - but the burlap looks fabulous here, so now I'm tempted again! Beautiful card, Anne - I love your butterflies perched on the chevrons, and the altered metal to match them looks gorgeous.
