Happy Birthday!

Wow I can't believe that we've come to the end of the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge from Studio L3.  It's been a blast working through the pages of  A Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 1 & 2 by Tim Holtz with Linda and everyone who's participated along with me.  The challenge for the finale is to create a birthday card for Tim (his birthday is next month) using any technique from either of the books.





















I used the tissue wrap collage technique found on page 38 of A Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2I also created the rose from recycled plastic packaging (the plastic a set of cling stamps came on).  The clock face is from Prima and the charm is from 7 Gypsies.  The Trinket Pin, Metal Corners & Metal Frame (behind the clock) are from Tim's Idea-ology line.   The doily is something I had in my stash.  I used Stampers Anonymous stamps from the Mini Shabby French set, Versafine Onyx Black Ink, and Ranger Distress Inks in Vintage Photo & Walnut Stain.  Inside the card I used a page from The Timepiece Collection by BoBunny.

Thanks to Linda for a wonderful adventure and Happy Birthday Tim!!
