It's finally here! The challenge has begun and I can finally post my project created for the first challenge!
The first challenge is based on the paint marbling technique which can be found on Page 43 of your CCIII book. Here is my project:
I first used the technique on a manila tag using Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Broken China and Peeled Paint Distressed Paints. I used some Vintage Photo and Crushed Olive Distress Ink to fill in.
Then I used a piece of manila cardstock and, using the same technique, created a second piece using Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Wild Honey and Seedless Preserves. After I dried this piece I ran it through the Vagabond using one of my new favorite dies, Tim's Sizzix Tattered Flower Garland. I then die cut cream cardstock using my other favorite die, the Spring Greenery. I added color using Crushed Olive and Forest Moss Distress Inks.
Finally, to finish the piece, I stamped Tim's Stamper's Anonymous bird and nest on a separate piece of cream cardstock, colored with Distress inks and cut out. These pieces were glued to the tag and then the greenery and flowers filled in around the nest and bird. I also die cut a Memory Box Donnington Tendril and added it to the scene. I used Wendy Vecchi's stamp for the sentiment. I finished the whole piece off with a beautiful new metal piece by Tim that I painted with Distress Paints.
Now it's your turn! Head on over to the CC3C Challenge page to look over the rules, learn the Marbled Paint technique on page 43 and create your own art! Be sure to upload your piece after you have finished to the challenge page (you can find instructions on the Challenge Page and visit each member of the Curiosity Crew's website/blog.
