CC2C Challenge - Week 4

Today I have my entry for week 4 of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge hosted by Linda on the StudioL3 blog.  This week's challenge is the Faded Layers technique on page 43 of A Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2 by Tim Holtz.  If you would like to see the technique you can buy the book here.

I used the new Spring Seasonal Distress Inks as the base for my tag.  Then I followed the instructions for the technique and added additional distress ink colors of Victorian Velvet, Stormy Sky, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Mustard Seed.  The stamps are from the Tim Holtz Flights of Fancy clear set and the Papillon cling set. To finish off the tag I added a couple of old buttons.

I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is beautiful, Donna! Very well done!

  2. Thank you so much! I do have to admit it was my second attempt. Didn't quite get it right the first time!

  3. Donna, this is gorgeous! You did a great job with the Faded Layers, and your colors are so, so pretty. Thanks for being part of the CC2 Challenge!

  4. Love the colours and the stamping. Really dreamy.
