CCC #14; Masking


Hi all~

Well, here we are at week #14 at Studio L3's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge...and I still haven't missed a week...yay!
Now, I have cut my own masks before, and with this being such a stressed week, wasn't sure what I was going to be up to--or how much time I'd have, so was a bit worried on what would appear on a finished project. So, with about an hour of free time, up to the craft room I go, and pulled out some of the pre-cut masks from Tim...and Wow; how much easier are they to use??!! So starting with the big clock mask, things just sorta flew from there (plus I'm sure the time limit was in the back of my mind) The "Time is Eternity" stamp is from Non Sequitur stamps (hmm, spelling?) and the Ben Franklin quote is from A Stamp in the Hand. All the rest are from Tim's line. Oh, and I had time left to play with the tinted fragment technique over one of Tim's salvage sticker clock faces...It got a bit "copper-ey" as I, uhm, apparently didn't tighten the top well the last time and started shaking, and, got copper..well, pretty much everywhere..so in person, when looking "across" the fragment, it is pratically opaque.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I'm gonna start looking at what everyone else has made.

  4. Kim, I find that I'm talking to myself a lot lately, and when I opened this page, I said to myself-- quite loudly-- "WOW! That's REALLY cool!"

    And I was right! :-)

    I absolutely love how you designed this! The masking looks spectacular, and the gorgeous colors and brilliantly-chosen stamps take it even higher. The spiral text is WAY cool! And the tinted fragment couldn't be more perfect (even if you do have copper-tinted fingers now!).

    Once again, it was a joy to visit your blog and see the magic you created for another CCC! You're just rocking it every week!
