Brushless Watercolor – CCC2 Challenge #7

Posted on

The what:  Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2 Challenge #7  Page 49

The where: Studio L3 (of course!)

This week’s sponsor: Eclectic Paperie

I love this technique.  I used it to make a couple of cards for my stash.  The first one will be perfect for when I need a masculine card.

This one is just for fun.  I think it will bring a smile to the face of the recipient.

Let me know what you think of my cards.  Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.  I hope everyone has a great weekend.

The challenge this week at StudioL3 is Shattered Stains found on page 48 of Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2.  We learned this technique in the Creative Chemistry 101 class, too.  Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring this week’s challenge.

I made a 9″ x 5″ mat board piece.  I used Distress Stains for the background, stamped with Archival Ink and used stamps from Studio 490 (Wendy Vecchi) and Ranger (Claudine Hellmuth).

I used some of Tim’s Movers & Shapers to cut my grungeboard shapes.  Here’s a close-up of the shattered stains:


I’m entering my piece in the following additional challenges: Everything Wendy Yahoo Group MAC #42,   Simon Says Stamp and Show … Anything Goes! and Inspiration Journal Bring on the May Flowers.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment – I just love them!


Faded Layers & Cracked Glass

Posted on

Challenge #4 for Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2 is a fun one, we used the Faded Layers technique on page 43.  Be sure and head over to Studio L3 and check out all the fabulous entries.  This week I made a tag:

In addition to Distress Inks, I used paint dabbers, Perfect Pearls Mist, Stickles and Movers & Shapers Dies.

Over on the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group we had a challenge to use a cracked glass technique.  I used one Wendy shared on her blog, Studio 490.  I love how my bottle turned out!

I started with a sea salt bottle.  A bit of paint, some Sticky Back Canvas, ink and stains and I have a cute little “vase of flowers” for my art spot.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.  I love your kind comments.
