Compendium of Curiosities....

Its seems ages since I last blogged but I've had a whirlwind of a crafting weekend, sorry for not posting any pics but now its dark in the mornings and evenings when I get home ,I have to wait for my day off work to take any half decent pictures, I think I may have to make a light box. This weeks challenge at Compendium of Curiosities is Perfect Distress....turn to page 38 for the deets, at least we're not doing anything extreme this week, I think I may have to have another go at this as I was a little heavy handed with the spritzing....well you learn by your mistakes as they say....I have photographed the card  this evening, so the photo is not too good but  I didn't want to wait till Thursday when its my day off again. The stamp is one of my favourite Tim Holtz christmas stamps, I've sprinkled it with silver embossing powder, I used Old Paper, Chipped Saphire, Tea dye and Broken China distress inks.I used an image from Crafty Individuals for the bottle top, I covered the image with glossy accents and sprinkled silver glitter on the top before it dried.......

Daniele, I think it's gorgeous and it looks to me like you spritzed just right! In other works, it's *perfectly* distressed!

I love that Santa image, too, and the blue and silver color scheme is lovely for him. The little bottle cap is such a clever touch, and looks like a snow globe with the glitter swirling around.

You gave this piece so many special little touches, actually--the snowflakes and rhinestones and sparkly ribbon, and it's really something special!
