Compendium of Curiosities II Challenge #17 - Creative Core'dinations

This week's Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2 Challenge over at Studio L3 uses one of my favorite products from Tim Holtz - Core'dinations Cardstock!  I love the stuff - it's sturdy, comes in a zillion colors and can be sanded, torn, distressed in tons of ways.

The challenge this week is to create a project following the technique on page 61 of A Compendium of Curiosities Volume II by Tim Holtz.  Out of respect for Tim and his technique, I can't tell you how I created the project, if you want to know - pick up a copy of the book, it's filled with amazing techniques and inspiration!
