CCC Week 35...

Posted by Picasa 
Well here we are at the end of our journey doing the Compendium
of Curiosities challenge... It has been such a fun thing to join in on
and I would like to thank the lovely Linda for coming up with this
idea and putting so much time into it. I have heard that she has
something else up her sleeve to be announced on Monday, looking
forward to hearing what it is.

This is my entry above, I used the new Ranger Distress stains to
do the background, they are fabulous for covering grunge board,
got to get some more of them. I had several attempts at trying
to use wire on this but was having a hard time so resorted to
my trusty Tiny Attacher. I was actually going to put on my
little strip "I enjoyed the journey" but that would not fit on my
card in one line. Linda, I did truly enjoy this journey with you
and thanks so much for doing it:)

Marlene, when I visit your blog and see the title, "Lucky Me," I always think to myself, "Actually, it's lucky US-- those of us who get to see and admire Marlene's art are the lucky ones!"

And here you go again, knocking my socks off with your wonderful creation. I love that G45 image, and the way you've used it here is PERFECT! The embossing, the tissue tape and ruler and cool metallic bits all work so beautifully for the theme, and the sense of whimsy is wonderful! You did a great job incorporating the Design Details technique, and using the Tiny Attacher was a great idea!

I enjoyed this journey with you, too, and am so grateful for your friendship and inspiration. I hope you'll be back for the next journey!
