Curiosities Begin Anew! Or CC2C #1

WooT! Tim Holtz has come out with the second volumn of "A Compendium of Curiosities", and Linda at Studio L3 has once agian bravely set forth as hostess to the technique challenges. We can't tell you how we did things...as that would be unfair to Tim, all we can do is show you are own interpretations of the techniques or products use. Oh, and as a treat for the first week, SimonSays Stamp has offered up a $25 Gift Certificate, so go grab a copy and get inky!
This is my tag...I had participated in Tim's online card class, where I failed miserably with the Marbled Stain technique...so I tried agian. Still not lovin' it. My stamp came from the Mini Flourish, which I then also cut out with grungepaper, and did up in Fired Brick and Mustard Seed Stains. Then I dropped the Mustard one into the splotches on the craft sheet of the Firec Brick one. It looked pretty cool by itself...now looking at the photo this morning...things look sorta messy. But i had fun while making it..so that is what counts. It's only going onto my Wall of Works anyway. And yes, as soon as I figure how to get my corkboards on the wall, I will show it off.

So, you have the until Friday to give this challenge a go. Plenty of Time!! Have a great week everyone!
