Compendium of Curiosities Challenge week 7

Missed out on last weeks challenge as I didn't have time but this weeks CC2C is Brushless Watercolor which is on page 49 in T!ms A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol II.  This challenge is sponsored by who are offering a $25 gift certificate to one lucky participant.

I am off to a 40th Birthday Party tonight so I have made this card for my friend Shelley using the above technique:

Stamps are from T!ms Artful Flight set and the sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps.  I used Bundled Sage stain on the background flower stamp and Vintage Photo distress ink on the birdcage.  Branch die is one of T!ms too and I coloured it with Vintage Photo, Bundled Sage, Walnut Stain and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks.  Flowers are from T!ms flower sizzix die and coloured with various stains and finished with brads.  There wasn't really anywhere to put 40 so thats inside.

If you want to join in with the CC2C challenge the details are all here:  Studio L3

Thanks for looking - Party Girl from Solihull
