CC#3C Layering Stencil - Monoprint

Hard to believe the Compendium of Curiosities III is in the final episode, so wonderfully headed by Linda and the Curiosity Crew! We have been instructed to open our books to page 48, Layering Stencil - Monoprint and the Funkie Junkie Boutique is the wonderful sponsor for the final challenge! As always there will be a prize to one lucky CC choice from Tim and Mario! Before I begin, I would like to thank Linda and the entire Curiosity Crew for taking us on such an artful journey and always inspiring us in so many ways! OK!
Now out of respect for Tim and all the effort into putting together a book of knowledge, I cannot explain the technique, but can tell you to "Buy" the book! It was overcast today, so I apologize for the picture quality. I added bits and pieces to make this a birthday tag, but stayed within the guidelines. It was hard to decide which side to go with!

The Flashcard were stenciled with Peeled Paint and shaded with Walnut Stain and a Wishbone hung from a Word Band.
The crown was painted in the above colors and a little Vintage Photo and then sealed with Multi Medium.  A bit of Tissue Tape and some dyed ribbon and all is good!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for visiting my blog!

Terry, I absolutely LOVE this tag! You have done so many cool techniques on this one! The stenciling on the flash cards looks amazing! I would have never thought of that! I love love LOVE your monoprint background. Colors are awesome and blend so perfectly with everything you've added to this tag. Your hanging wishbone is so clever on this "Happy Birthday" tag. I LOVE your altered Ideaology crown. So pretty! Love the added filmstrip and the metal arrow. Are you getting the idea that there is nothing about this tag that I don't LOVE?!? Thanks for sharing with all of us at CC3C and THANK YOU for all of the wonderful uplifting compliments you've left on my blog. I am proud to call you my very talented friend. <3 Candy

Wow, Candy is a hard act to follow but I agree with everything she said! I love your monoprint background and the beautiful little wishbone - and everything else!! I am so sorry this whole adventure is ending but hopefully Tim will write (or maybe he is writing) book No. 4 so we can all do it again! Hugs, Anne xx
