I couldn’t wait to get inky for Linda’s Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge #4!
This weeks challenge is… #4 Faded Layers, the technique can be found in Tim’s Compendium of Curiosities 2, page 43.
I really wasn’t sure where to start with colours, I stared at Distress ink for a little while but I realized that they weren’t going to colour the tag themselves. So I flipped through my inky blot tag collection. (I have no idea what to call it but my “inky blot tag collection” are tags that I’ve used to mop up left over inky bits left on my craft sheet that I’ve seemed to have collected.)
You what was funny? I thought I didn’t have enough variety in my inky tag collection! (ARG!) Ah, ha! So it seemed I was avoiding some colours and well, let’s boot me out of my comfort zone and use something different! Go figure! In case you didn’t realize my FAVE colours are purple and pink! And with Ranger Distress Inks, Broken China is on my speed dial list.
So I sucked it up and reached for a tag that started with yellow and green. I worked in a little of Shabby Shutters and well, I still couldn’t resist using a little Broken China in it! I also love using Vintage photo but resisted and kept the bright colours in the tag. 🙂
I do LOVE this stamp in the Stampers Anonymous, Haberdashery collection and found these words on a B Line Designs stamp. It seems at the moment, I’m using Forest Moss distress ink to colour all my ribbon lately and this one was no exception!
Come play with us! Just grab your copy of Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities 2 and let’s get inky! Heads up though in the next few challenges you’ll need some specific supplies: Metal Foil Tape, Tissue Wrap (either pattern rocks!) and the Idea-ology Pocket Watch.
