OK...Tim Holtz has but out a second edition of his wonderful Compendium of Curiosities book...and Linda at Studio L3 has bravely led us into the fray with weekly challenges. So, on Week #3, we have been assigned Page #46: Marbeled Stains.
This was also a technique demonstrated in Tim's Online class, "Creative Chemistry 101", and I have to say....I failed. My attemps were...lets just say... yucky. So I chucked it up to a technique that just wouldn't work for me (much like the airgun/alcohol ink one from the first book) . But, I have a few more stains now (ok, more than a few) so I bravely stepped forth...using a very small scrap of paper...just in case... And Oh Hot Damn..It Worked!! How very cool!! Very much like the shaving cream effect! OK, I'm game...lets try a tag...and bingo! I know what I did wrong...but since we can't say...in fairness to Tim...I'll just say..don't skimp on step #1.
Below are my two efforts...so very cool!! On the tag, the stamp is from Impression Obsession and the saying from StampScapes.
Eclectic Paperie has offered a gift certficate for a lucky participant...incase you need an extra push to give it a go.
Now, this new series of challenges runs from Friday to Thurs. night. so there's not a lot of time left to get your stains on...but if you didn't do well on a prior try..I strongly suggest you give this one another look!
Have a great weekend everyone.
