Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge-#3

camera tag4 w border.jpg

This week’s challenge over at Studio L3  is using the technique from page 46 of Tim’s latest book and is sponsored by www.eclecticpaperie.com.

I started with the marbled stain technique exactly as described by Tim. But the background of the tag somehow got “lost” (as far as what is visible) somewhere during the week as I couldn’t seem to stop adding “stuff,” once I decided I wanted to use my brand new Vintage Camera die. The sentiment is computer-generated.

For the photo, I stood the tag at an angle, and it appears that the vintage camera is level and straight on the tag—it is actually cocked a bit.

Love the vintage camera die cut! I'm still waiting on mine! You may have lost your marbled tag with all the "stuff" you layered on top of it...but it all looks great! Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
