Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Week 15 and Simon Says Stamp and Show your Grunge.

Week 15 over at Studio L3 and Linda has us in alcohol and grunge and I am loving it!!! Every thing is Tim Holtz and the witch and embossing folder are my new toys that I picked up from Scrapbooking Made Simple the other day. They have something going on as to what I will do or use first! Come on, that should be easy!!! Now here is what I did. I cut out a few of these beauties in black, because I wanted bits and pieces. Her face I cut out of brown wrapping paper, which I wrinkled up first and then adhered with glue. Notice the twinkle in her eye and the shimmer of her hair! The hat is a separte piece that I used stickles on and added a head band of purple and orange! Now her clothes are also cut away from the die and clear embossed! The background, I can't tell you how I did that! Trust me, buy the book!!! This will also work for Simon Says Stamp and Show your Grunge!
Again this was way more fun then it should have been!!  Thank you for flying by!!
