Compendium of Curiosities....

Well folks its over for another year, I've managed to get some crafting done today without falling asleep in the afternoon, when I get a holiday I usually spend the first 2 days snoozing, terrible really as I slept through most of Christmas, this afternoon I'm catching up on washing and ironing well I will be later after I finished playing Donkey Kong Country on the WII, I'm getting better at collecting bananas now.....lol.
Todays tag is following the challenge at Compendium of Curiosities......using re-inker. The colours I've used are bundled sage, victorian velvet and old paper and the re- inker was tea dye. The background came out quite dark so I went with a vintage male theme using stamps from Artemio, graphics 45 clock and man image. The suitacase is from B Line and the key is embossed with a bronze embossing powder and then aged using black.

Ooh la la, Daniele, these colors are FABULOUS! You did a spectacular job on the scribble stain technique and created a really cool, masculine look with these great images. I love the embellishments you chose, too, and the bronze embossing is a great touch!

We bought each other a Wii for Christmas, but I haven't played Donkey Kong. Mostly, I'm just trying not to accidentally knock over the furniture. Coordination is not my strong point! ;-)

Happy 2011 to you, sweetie! It's going to be a fabulous year!
