Compendium of Curiosities, Challenge 21

It's time for another installment of the Compendium challenge.   This challenge is all about the Rock Candy Distress Glitter. Wow, what fun I had with this one!  I couldn't just stop making cards and tags with this technique. 

I immersed myself in hearts and pinks and reds to celebrate love and Valentines Day!  I pulled out some newest Tim Holtz stamps, stencils and texture fades and just played and played. 

This card has a finished size of 5 3/4 x 5 3/4.   

Here are a few of the tags. 

Those who play along have a chance to win some great Tim goodies and a gift certificate by the challenge sponsor. 

CC3 challenge 21 is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium. Check out their website at http://www.inspirationemporium.com for lots of Tim Holtz goodies and much more. 

Hope you get a chance to try this technique. Such fun!

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Creating. 

Hugs, Sharon
