Compendium of Curiosities Challenge- week 29


I did a very simple one for this weeks CC challenge over at Studio L3 where our task is to create "weathered wood". My background is embossed using a distressed embossing plate from Sizzix. When went to use it I thought it was wood grain. My grunge paper is all used up so this will have to do. It must be a hardwood. The grain is very close together. The words and image are from Lisa's Altered Art and the bird stamp is from Scrolls Work.

Thank you for looking!

  2. I think it turned out great! It seems like a friend and I were playing around with some of the Sizzix embossing plates once, and they didn't have very deep impressions. Love the die you used and the image is adorable!

  14. You say "simple," I say "Sensational!" This is so wonderful, Donna! I love that little hoop girl and her avian friend, and the sentiment is wonderful. The background looks great-- like burlap, which is perfect for this design. Lovely job, as always!
