Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Week One

Linda over at Studio L3 is hosting a challenge using Tim Holtz "Compendium of Curiosities" new book.  The first challenge is "Water Stamping."  I will say that this was a challenge to me, because I ran through about six samples and decided this was the last one!  All stamps are from Tim Holtz, Distress Inks used are Dusty Concord, Milled lavender, Broken China and Tumbled Glass.



There is also a nice prize being offered by Daisy at Eclectic Paperie.  Thank you Linda and Daisy!

Terry, it's BEAUTIFUL! I love the soft colors you used, and the little dimensional butterflies look great against the background. And don't even get me started on how amazing your water-stamping is! Wow-- it may have taken a few tries, but you perfected it!!!

I'm so happy you're playing along!

Hugs,
Linda

Love the colors and the butterflies! I have a few samples that didn't "make the grade" either, I plan on using them in my die cut machine.
