CC2C #3: Marbeling Comes Alive!!

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 fairness to Tim...I'll just say..don't skimp on step #1.

Below are my two very cool!!  On the tag, the stamp is from Impression Obsession and the saying from StampScapes. 
Oh, and to spice things up; 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.


  1. Lovely finished tag there Kim. You have come in at a close shave there!! Love the colours. Chipped Sapphire? I like that one!
    I too didn't get the knack of this one and this week I have had diddley squat time to do it! Hey Ho! Perhaps I will give it a bash on Monday.

  2. Beautiful tag!

  3. Yours has come out beautifully. I ran out of time for this one, though I did do it for CC101.

  4. Hot damn, it worked SPECTACULARLY!!! This is fantastic, Kim. It reminds me of Wedgewood china my mom has, actually. What a great use of color, and I love the stamping, too. Bravo, girlfriend-- you rocked it!
