CC2C Challenge - Week 2

Today I have my entry for week 2 of the Compendium of Curiosities 2 challenge hosted by Linda on the Studio L3 blog.

The sponsor for this challenge is Angie Lentz.  She has generously donated an Idea-ology messenger bag autographed by Tim Holtz!  Yay Angie!

This week's challenge is faux patina and can be found on page 58 of A Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2 by Tim Holtz.  If you would like to see the technique then buy the book here!

So without further ado, here is my entry...

The tag was made during the Creative Chemistry 101 class.  I stamped the background pattern using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.  I covered a small foam heart with metal tape and applied the faux patina finish to it along with a key from the Idea-ology locket keys.  The wings are a Stamper's Anonymous stamp.  The banner along the bottom is one of Tim's Sizzix Alteration strips.

This is the first time I've participated in an ongoing challenge and I'm really enjoying this.  I was very happy with the way this week's entry turned out.  I hope you like it!!!
