Happy happy April Saturday!!! Tis time for another challenge, number twenty-six...WOW, in the new Compendium of Curiosities III Challenge!!! The Curiosity Crew and I absolutely were blown away at all the Frameworks projects last time! You all are so inspiring!!! Thank you for joining in, and of course for all of the comments, likes, and retweets!
Challenge number twenty-six is using the Smudge Stamping technique...a cool vintage looking technique in my opinion! I can't wait to see your makes using this! I hope you can play along on this challenge so you can win some amazing fabulous prizes donated by the ever generous Tim and Mario, and this challenge's sponsor, The Funkie Junkie Boutique!!! Thank you sponsors for your generosity! You will have two weeks to complete this challenge and link it up to the CC3Challenge site, and you can carefully read all the rules here. Please take the time to visit every member of the Curiosity Crew (See below.) for not only some great stamping inspiration, but for a chance to win some extra goodies!
Recently, I snagged this binder album from Heart of Texas Studio, that happens to fit all my Tim Holtz Collection Layering Stencils perfectly, and it needed decorating, so I thought the Smudge Stamping technique would be perfect for it.
|Here is the Tag Binder Album...nice thick chipboard.|
|I love this image from the oldie but goodie stamp set The Journey from Tim and Stamper's Anonymous. I stamped it twice with Jet Black onto a #8 Manila Tag from Ranger, and cut out the car with the men inside to use as layering pieces.|
|I inked both cover pieces with Aged Mahogany...my favorite...and stamped the alphabet from the Typography set with Jet Black.|
|I used Tim's technique on two #10 Manila Tags, and then stamped the sentiment in Jet Black and embossed it with Clear Powder.|
|I had to add stenciling because this is a stencil binder after all, so I used the Harlequin and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Then I added on lots of Idea-ology metal pieces, but only on the front, as I want it to lay flat.|
|Here is the back...no metal pieces so it lays flat.|
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
