Take a risk

It's week 18 in the Compendium of Curiosities II at Linda's, which means we are half way thru the book by Tim. Which makes me wonder if there's a Book III in the works?! This week our sponsor is The Funkie Junkie and she is giving someone a $25 gift card. And you can't win if you don't play!



This week's challenge is on page 47 and is called Whitewash Stamping. I decided to mix up my artists again and used a couple of images from Dyan Reaveley's Doodle Parts and sentiment from The Right Words stamp sets. I used t!m's Limited Edition Summer Distress Inks; Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn and Picked Raspberry to color the tag with, then edged in Gathered Twigs. The bird perched on the 'shroom is one I picked up on clearance at Michael's. The butterflies are from CTMH.

Love you choice of colors! Great tag! I have yet to get me some spring and summer distress inks! Yikes...I do so want them though.

Gorgeous tag Sue! I love your choice of colours and those 'shrooms' look perfect to show this technique. Love the sentiment as well... and it's so true isn't it?

Sue I love the colors and technique used on this. I have the book, but haven't had a chance to use it. After seeing this beautiful tag I think I will try it. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hugs,
Dianne
