Compendium of Curiosities 2!

Happy Friday the 13th!  Today Linda kicks off the start of "A Compendium of Curiosities 2" challenge with "Custom Foam Stamps" on page 66.  Our of respect to Tim, I cannot post instructions, but do recommend his book!  Simon Says Stamp is offering a $25.00 gift certificate to one lucky person to help kick things off.  I will also be linking this up to Simon Says Stamp and Show "A Lord Holtz Technique."
Unruly PaperArts on Facebook is looking for some altered lids, so I emptied a jar of olives the other day and saved the lid.  So for my altered jar lid for UPA, I decided to use this first technique from Tim's book!  It is actually a magnet and in the inside of the lid, I added the same glitter glass as on the butterflies body.  There are a little collection of shrinky butterflies, which I colored with alcohol inks!  I wish you could see the shimmer in the black Dyluslions spray, but we had some pretty nasty storms today and lighting was poor!

Have a great weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!

Great art work Terry ! It is difficult to capture the glimmer, glitters and shiny things isn't it?
Hope your storms are settled down.
