Compendium of Curiosities II - Week 3



Hello Bloggers/Friends!!

The lovely Linda Ledbetter over at Studio L3 has set us a new challenge from Lord Tim of Holtz book, A Compendium of Curiosities Vol II.  The challenge should you choose to accept it, can be found on page 46 and the technique is Marbled Stains.  Sorry I can't divulge the technique for you, as it would be very unfair to Tim!!   I have to be honest it wasn't the easiest one I've done, and I'm not entirely sure it's exactly right........but hey ho, I have made a tag following said instructions & had fun doing it!!!  I can't ask for much more than that, can I????

Hope you had fun taking part in this challenge too, thanks to Linda & Tim for allowing us to have such fun.  Thanks also to this weeks sponsor Eclectric Paperie who have very kindly donated $25 to spend in their online shop to this weeks winner.......Good Luck everyone!
Take care and as always,  Happy Crafting
