Happy November!~Mixed Media Mojo New Challenge~CC3C #14


Happy Saturday! Hope your candy hangover is not too serious or that the ghosts and goblins of the night kept you awake late!

Once you recover, come join in the new Challenge at Mixed Media Mojo! The theme for this month is pretty much Anything Goes. The twist, incorporate Thankful into  your art. Now it can be any variation of Thankful, have fun and run....

This is also my project for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #14, 14! already!! You can see all the details and wonderful inspirational pieces at Linda's blog, HERE.  This even number challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique with a fabulous $25 shopping spree, see her wonderful goods at her awesome shop HERE.

The Compendium Challenge this round is to do the Colored Crackle technique as shown in The Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3 book by Tim Holtz.

Please click the photos to see them bigger:)

I had fun trying out the Distress Crackle Paint with this project. It is so lovely and worn. The butterfly stamp set is Tim Holtz. The keys stamp is Unity. The leaves and sentiment is Newton's Nook. The cabinet frame die is unknown, just something I had in my stash.

I used Distress Ink pad minis to color the background after I had stamped the images. The keys were stamped with Distress Ink then clear embossed. The butterflies were stamped with Archival Ink then clear embossed. I colored the butterflies with Distress Ink pad minis set 11.

Thanks for looking!
Have a great day!
