Compendium of Curiosities.....


Afternoon peeps just woke from having my afternoon nap with my Grandson......its an age thing lol. I started this tag the other night and wasn't sure what I was doing for it, so its one of those it kinda just developed tag....The technique this week at Compendium of Curiosities is Altered Metal using Alcohol inks, I saw Tim demoing using these inks on the new metal foil, for the intense colours he just scribbled the ink straight onto the metal foil. for the technique this week you'll have to consult the 'inky book of techniques' or I'll be in trouble with Linda, why not pop over and see some of the awesome work from other entries. Some other challenges this week are Simon Says Show and Stamp.....stripes, the background was made using a Kabuka mould from TSS.....just love the little buttons.The Shabby Tearoom challenge is Buttons and bow. Gingersnap Creations have a colour challenge using jewel colours with added gold......the gold is the dewdrops and the gold beads threaded through the top.The stamp for the corset is from B Line and the challenge at Moving Along the Times.....fashion

WOW! Danielle, this is stunning! The embossed, alcohol ink-altered metal looks incredible. It reminds me of those wonderful glass foil ornaments from the 50s-- delicate and vibrant and magical. The corset and feathers look great with this Mardi Gras-like background. Fabulous job, girl!
