Over at the lovely Linda Ledbetters blog Studio L3 this weeks CC2 challenge is Shattered Stains. To get the full details on how to do this you will need to look at page 48 of Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2.
Now I'm not really sure I got this quite right, because my tree has ended up looking remarkably like a Savoy cabbage leaf! Still I quite like that sort of organic look.
For some reason my photos make it look as though my tree is still grungepaper grey, in real life it does look green (Peeled Paint and Stormy Weather Distress Stains), honest it does. My tag is inked with Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough and Faded Jeans, and the tree and pinecones have been edged with Snow Cap White paint dabber, some multi-medium and then I got my glitter out. I have to admit that felt just plain wrong in the middle of May.
Anyway, please go and have a look at all the lovely creations on Linda's blog, which has been sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week who are going to send a $25 gift certificate to one lucky person.
