journey -CC3C #24

Morning All- Yep I'm participating a challenge again. This time I'm using these blank books I found in Target's dollar section. I wish now I had grabbed more because they are now all gone. . To check out this challenge just go to lindaledbetter.com and click the CC3C tab .To find the techniques we use a book by Tim Holtz- Compendium of Curiosities volume III. You can go to his website timholtz.com. Go to search and type Compendium of Curiosities III. And you be able to purchase an autographed copy like I did. This particular challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique (thefunkiejunkie.com) . And don't forget that Tim and Mario donated amazing prizes! Now onto the cover. First I stamped and inked this cute little bird, and nest. used the technique and then put some glue n seal to protect my colors. The I inked the cover of the books with several colors of distress ink. I then applied a ripped portion of a tag that I used a wood texture fade and inked with distress ink. Then from my stash a few leaves and cheese cloth. Supplies : Remnant Rubs- elements & Botanical Stamp sets- Bird Feather(cms180) and Bird Crazy (cms312) Distress Ink- Pink Raspberry, Broken China, Stormy Sky, Squeezed Lemonade and Cracked Pistachio. Die cut- Sizzix Alteratons - Garden greens
