Compendium of Curiosities # 2 - Challenge

I've decided to play along with the lovely Linda Ledbetters' challenge using Tim Holtz new book - A Compendium of Curiosities II , for details how to participate click on the link on my sidebar OR  Linda's name above.   This is week one & the challenge is to follow the technique described by Tim in his new book.......which you can find on page 66/ Making Custom Foam Stamps.  I created a tag following the instructions & added a few more bits too.  This weeks sponsor is Simon Says Stamp and if you enter you have a chance to win a shopping voucher from their online store, which of course stock humungous amounts of Ranger goodies!!
Hope you like my tag, unfortunately I cannot divulge how I made it as it would be unfair to Tim, so check out page 66 of a Compendium of Curiosities to make your own tag, card or whatever takes your fancy!
Thanks for looking & as always......
Happy Crafting!!!
