CC3C #32 Frosted Film, Pg. 59

Welcome to another installment of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge, Vol. 3, hosted by Linda at Studio L3.  This is the Thirty-second challenge in where we work through the techniques of Tim Holtz from, you guessed it…his 3rd Volume of the Compendium of Curiosities!!  As in the past challenges, we can’t give details on the challenge, so don’t ask, but do go get your own copy of Tim’s fabulous book.  Also, TheFunky Junkie Boutique has offered an extremely generous $25 Gift Certificate for all the even numbered weeks! So grab a copy, and join in to play!!  All the deets are here, at Linda’s blog!

I thought I only had black clearly art film, but was relieved to find a clear piece tucked away. Made this a whole lot easier!  We spent a day at the New England Aquarium last week, so there is no wonder I chose these dies for a birthday card for my husband.  I only have a few colored Archival Inks, in hindsight perhaps Alcohol inks would have really popped the colors I had in mind, but ah well; these wee beasties are pretty hard to see in a tank, much less the wild, so it sorta fits. 

Finished off with a background of Dylusion’s spray inks and stencils, and some die cuts, and a card I hope will revisit the aquarium!

Now go visit the wonderful Curiosity Crew’s work to see how they showcase the Frosted Film! Have a great week everyone.


  1. Cool transparent effect using the Frosted Film! It definitely gives an underwater fell. Your hubby is a lucky guy to get this wonderful card.

  2. Kim...this is just awesome! I totally love how you coupled Tim's Frosted Film with those wonderful sea themed die cuts. Your seahorse and sand dollar look incredible! Perfect use for this technique. The ocean blue background with the bubbles and the seaweed are the perfect compliments for your Frosted Film pieces. Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy

  3. Frosted Film gives your card a real underwater, dreamy feel. Very cool!! Hope you have fun experimenting with different coloring techniques with it. Great job!!

  4. So cool!!! They look wonderful with the frosted! Gorgeous tag! Thanks for joining in!!!
