Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #17-Creative Core’dinations

love wish dream w border

This week’s challenge at Studio L3 uses the Creative Core’dinations techniques outlined by Tim Holtz on page 61 of his book, Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2. This week’s challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

It seems I keep repeating myself, but this really is one of my favorite techniques. I actually used two different shades of  Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection Cut & Emboss Series. I stamped the sentiment with Fired Brick Distress Ink and applied Perfect Pearls Gold. I inked the edges with Frayed Burlap. The ribbons were stained with Fired Brick Distress Stain and Black Soot Distress Ink.
