Compendium of Curiosities Vol 3 Challenge #9~CC3C #9~Paris Pair

Back this Friday with the latest CC3 Challenge!

We are up to Challenge #9, it is odd numbered so our fabulous sponsor is Inspiration Emporium with a fabulous $50 shopping spree to a lucky winner! As always there is another fabulous prize package awarded by  the fabulous Curiosity Crew provided by our source of Inspiration, Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi! Thanks so much as always, everyone in this Challenge project is amazing!

This challenge takes up the clever Stamps and Framelits on page 63 of the Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3. Wonderful new toy for the stash! I have never used this amazing pair of tools before and I must say..... I never want to go back! It is soooooooo fun! Sooo many possibilities to further enjoy this journey:)

Here we go, I used the French Flight set.

Please feel free to click each image to get a larger view:)

I stamped the Eiffel Tower, Fleur De Lis with pigment ink then embossed them with Ranger Super Fine Powder in clear. The butterflies were stamped with Distress Embossing Ink and also embossed with Ranger Super Fine. 

The backgrounds were layered with Distress Paints and Inks. Over the butterflies I swiped the ink pad across the images, sprayed with water and wiped it away gently. Then used my fingers too much and they are still pretty inky:)

I cut out a photo from my Holtz paper stash and roughed it up a bit!

I am sure this pair had some fond memories to make such a happy photo!

All in all such a fun prompt and great tools to play with! A happy way to bring on this Labor Day Weekend! Be safe and enjoy your family this weekend!

All the best,

Fun places to play:

  1. Hi Kim! I have to say that I totally agree with your assessment of the framelits! They are a breeze to use! Your two cards using the french framelits set are darling. Love the colors and the designs on both of them. The dimensional butterflies really pop on the one card and I adore the photograph mixed in among the Eiffel Tower and the Fleur Dis Les. SO FRENCH! Thanks for sharing your art with all of us at CC3C. <3 Candy
