Welcome back to my little patch of blogland new and old followers (still get a huge thrill every time someone new appears on my list and oh boy am I honoured by the names that have appeared!) Today I want to share a card created as part of Linda Ledbetter's latest Compendium of Curiosties II challenge. This has been sponsored by the generous people at Simon Says Stamp. Linda wants us to get creative with Coredinations cardstock using the technique in Tim Holtz's latest book. And so...
Did I go over the top?! For some reason it seemed like a good idea to 'deconstruct' each part of one of my fav TH Texture Fades folders using not just one but three of his CCII methods, and boy did it take some time in the end!
So I got 'creative with coredinations' over the whole lot (DI Spiced Marmalade) and used the same technique in two tone on lighter cardstock for a couple of sections. Now I find the card can start to get a bit fragile when sanded but 'The Yorkshire Fox' provided the perfect solution - recycled acetate packaging embossed and cut to fit!(technique two)
I used the same principle with other cardstock types too, inking each one mostly with DI Walnut Stain/Fired Brick. Technique three was the shattered stains one done using grungepaper and DI Antique Linen/Fired Brick (the star, button and 13).
Finally the sentiment, which probably shows off the main technique most clearly. So there we have it. I learned a bit more (always essential) got covered in ink (again, essential) and used lots of orange! Now who'd have thunk it! Time to disappear as the hairy hound is pestering for her breakfast (you don't want 5 stone of dog pestering for too long, trust me!!) Take care and hopefully see you soon. Hugs, Buttons x
