CCC3 - Marbled Paints

Woohoo! Today is the day that the new Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge starts!!! It all begins with Paint Marbling!!! I hope you already have 'The Book' and are ready to roll so you can win some uber fabulous prizes donated by the ever generous Tim & Mario, and the first challenge's sponsor, Inspiration Emporium!!! You will have two weeks to complete this first challenge and link it up to the CC3Challenge site, and you can read all the rules here. Please visit every member of the Curiosity Crew for some gorgeous painty inspiration, and I hope this card gets your creative gears moving as well!
I decided to go with a card the first time out! I'm running short on cards, so you will probably be seeing a lot.
I first glued down a sheet of Melange Tissue Wrap onto some card to create the base for the the embellishments of my card.
I used Tim's technique for Paint Marbling on the Tissue Wrap.
I started cutting out the butterfly motif image and cut strips of the Tissue Wrap to use for the weaving pattern.
I also used Tim's technique on a Giant sized manilla tag, and then I laid out the strips and began to weave them into place.
I painted a piece of Crinkle Wrinkle as well, and then stamped on it. Metal embellishments, Stickles, and edge inking finished out the card. It was super simple.
I am so thrilled to be apart of the Curiosity Crew!  I hope you all join in on the fun, and that your hands get creatively inky soon!!!


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
