It's The Grande Finale...

Of challenges at Linda's based on the book Compendium of Curiosities II by Tim Holtz. Linda promised a big sendoff and I can't think of a better way to honor Tim than by taking our favorite technique from either of his books and making a card to help Tim celebrate his upcoming birthday on January 7. Asking me to pick a favorite Tim technique is like asking most parents to pick a favorite child! So I picked a couple. I chose the Tissue Tape technique and used the Grunge Flower die. And I also used the Spritz And Flick technique which is so simple but makes a huge impact. There's also some random stamping and highlighting with my Signo White Uniball Pen. And I inked thru a stencil and highlighted that as well. There's Brolly Man cut from Stickyback Canvas and instead of his brolly shading him, there's a Grunge Flower instead!

I've had a great time participating in the challenges these last 8 months. Wonder if there's a Compendium of Curiosities III coming out at CHA Winter??!! We'll find out in a couple of weeks!

Sue, it's fantastic, and I know Tim is going to be delighted! Thanks so much for being part of the CC2C! I'm looking forward to Vol. 3, too, whenever it comes to be.

Your tag is stunning. I have never seen the white outlining make such a difference. I'm going to have to use that technique soon.
