Layered Fragment

I am coming to this party really late. There is a weekly Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over at Studio L3 and I have wanted to play along for quite some time. Well, the series is winding down with only 7 or 8 technique challenges to go, but I managed to get this week's Challenge 28 - Colorful Layered Fragments - done at least. It's from page 57 of Tim Holtz's wonderful Compendium of Curiosities book.


I had a wee bit of trouble with this technique (Glossy Accents is not too forgiving!) so I need to go and practice some more, but for a first try this is passable. The bird collage stamp is from Oxford Impressions; the background flourish is Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous; the polka dots are Hero Arts. I am also submitting this for the Waltzingmouse Sketch this week.

Charmaine, welcome to the CCC! I'm so delighted that you joined in, and wow, did you ever make an amazing work of art for your debut! Your sweet bird-themed Fragment is stunning, and you did the technique perfectly. The background card is perfect-- pretty on its own, and still understated enough to really let the Fragment take center stage!

I hope you'll be back for the next challenge! Thank so much for sharing your talent!
