CCC #32

Hello my friends. It's a beautiful winter day - almost spring like with mostly sunny skies and temps soaring up near 50F. A lot of our snow has melted this week, but I know it'll be awhile before spring is actually here.

Today I worked on the next Compendium of Curiosities Challenge (#32) from Linda over at Studio L3. The technique can be found on page 59 of Tim's book.

I don't have any of Tim's stamps or masks, so I had to make some adjustments, but still followed the technique. The floral stamp is from Local King Rubber Stamps and all others are from Cornish Heritage Farms.

The flourish and photo corner are black cardstock, embossed with two layers of clear UTEE. The big flower is die cut with Tim's tattered florals from brown paper bag and misted with bronze and frost glimmer mist.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week.
