Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 20

Hello there,

A great start to a new week.  Hope you had a good day and are looking forward to the week ahead.

Last time I played along with CC3C was challenge 16!  Yikes!  I'm excited to present my take on challenge 20.  Not only is this one of my favorite Tim techniques but I got to use some newly released stamps!  Yay!

There is only one rule for those playing and that's to work from your own version of Compendium of Curiosities 3 and not provide the instructions. This is out of respect for all of Tim's hard work in creating the books for us.

Challenge 20 is all about Distress Watercoloring, Part 2 on page 40.  For more details check out Linda Ledbetters blog here.

I made a couple of cards using the new flower garden and crazy birds stamps. I am in love. Love I tell you.


Aren't these cone flowers just yummy?



And what can I say about the birds?  So stinkin cute. 


Oh my that face just cracks me up.  Hee, hee, hee.


Hope these make you smile too. They just makes me happy. 

The sponsor for challenge 20 is  The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Thanks for stopping by.  Look for more CHA posts this week.  Lots more to share with you.

Happy Creating!

Hugs,  Sharon

  7. Sharon...OMG!!! You rocked this challenge. I love those new flower stamps and honestly, I wasn't sure that I would! And the crazy birds....they are too cute! You did a fantastic job of watercoloring both images. And your distress watercolor technique part 2, adding the shadowing and dimension is perfection! I love both of your cards and I'm so glad that you shared them with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
