CCC #34 Flies with I Brake For Stamps!

When Linda from Studio L3 mentioned that Della from I Brake For Stamps was this week's generous sponsor, to me it was the best of both worlds.  I knew I had to play with Della's stamps using a Tim Holtz Technique.  You can't get better than that!  So you know, if you don't have Tim's book, "Compendium of Curiosities," IBFS has a wonderful price on this book in their clearance section and this would also make a wonderful gift for a crafting friend. While you are there, take a look at some wonderful stamps!

Where to start!  I used a designer paper with very subtle print, I then used IBFS large crackle stamp over the print and a few feathers.  You hardly see those images!  The egg and feather collage elements are 7 Gypsies paper and were cut out and I used the crackle stamp on the egg.  The sentiment (I love that one), was stamped on mulberry paper and inked.  I torn around the edges.  The tab background uses the Antique Glimmers from the Technique Junkies and I stamped more feathers.  All stamps are from IBFS.  This was way more fun than it should have been.  I just wish I could keep glue off my stuff!!!

I can't believe we are at CCC#34 and next week we have finished the book!  I have done every challenge from week #1 and have learned to enjoy Monday's!!!  Linda you rock in so many ways!
