Thanks for all who joined us in our first CC3 Challenge… the Curiosity Crew was blown away by the amazing entries… over 125 people submitted projects! This second challenge is based on Distress Glitter (pg 56 of Tim’s book). If you know me, you know I’m not much for sparkly things, but if ever there were a glitter for me to use, it would be Distress Glitter. I like the shabby shine rather than the full-on-sunglasses-needed-sparkle of regular glitter. You’ll find all the information for Challenge #2 ~ Distress Glitter ~ on Linda’s CC3C blog.
I started by diecutting the four flowers that come on the Tattered Floral die, and inking and stamping each one. I thought I’d use them all on this XL tag but I chose to use just the jumbo one with the text.
After coloring my XL tag with Dylusions Ink Sprays and water, I then stamped Tim’s sentiment in jet black archival ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.
The stem is from another Sizzix die (that one’s called Flower, Leaves & Stem #4). I painted it black and embossed it in the Dot Matrix Texture Fade.
I used a lot of stencils and a few Distress Ink pads on the tag, and then stamped a few extra images with jet black archival. My flower is glittered with Spun Sugar distress glitter and I used a black wooden gear and brad to hold it in place.
Will you join us this week? Just visit Linda Ledbetter’s blog to see the rules and FAQs.
And don’t forget the prizes! We are sponsored alternate weeks by The Funkie Junkie Boutique and Inspiration Emporium and wait… there’s more… Tim and Mario have also sent Linda a huge box of goodies for giveaways to challenge participants. I’m thinking there’s a lot of loot at stake!
On a serious note, several of my artsy friends are trying to make a difference for girlsrising.com – you will find the #BringBackOurGirls details here. Time is short as this begins Wednesday, May 15th. Any art is welcome from the smallest piece to the largest – people will support this buying bookmarks, tags, canvases… every size and possibility is most welcome.
Hope to see you at CC3C!
