Compendium 13

This week Linda's Studio L3 challenge is one of my favourite pages from THE book - page 65.  It won't take too much to work out what the challenge is so I won't say any more!

Here is my card - it's an 8x8 inch card, with a piece of Tim's Vintage Shabby stack, the challenge items and some stamping.


I used some music paper and also an old piece of Tim's paper with pen nibs on (it's from a Design Originals pack from 2005 according to the date on the edge of the paper, never before used.....) on the GP, cut these through the tattered florals die, and I also had a grunge flower made up with some of Wendy V's flower stamps.

I kept the stamping to walnut stain to co-ordinate with the papers and blended some broken china DI over the base card. Finally just a touch of distress stickles here and there.
There are some amazing prizes up for grabs this week - so don't bother entering!!

I love the colors of your flowers! "Grunge" isn't natural for me, although I have grown to appreciate it because of Tim's techniques. I still prefer 'pretty'....and you have created a project that's pretty. :-)

Wow you made 3 flowers and they are all gorgeous! I am not good at these so will be lucky if 1 turns out good.

Love that last comment Helen :P That pen nib flower is totally gorgeous and so unusual - love it! You should do a bouquet with all these different designs and pop them in a vase :)

Wow! Great job on the CCC technique, Helen! Those flowers are gorgeous, and it's brilliant the way you showed a variety of ways to make them. The entire card is beautiful-- I love that background paper and the text stamps you chose, and the color pallet is lovely. That little pop of orange ties the ticket and flowers together perfectly. Well done!!!
