Well, here we are on week 29 of the Compendium Challenge! Unbelievable! More so that I haven't missed one!!
This week we are on page 50, with the Weathered Wood Grunge technique. I have to admit, I only bought the Sizzix Big Shot because of these challenges, and all of Tim's fabulous dies and texture fades (and even those I wasn't sure of at the time, but now..Love Them!) I had been waiting for this one; sorta had some ideas...and this isn't what I envisioned, at all! LOL! It was supposed to be driftwoody, with old boats and shells, like my old Cape Cod home; but instead (and the fact that I was stamping in the hallway, running into my supply freezer to get stuff) it's more like my new Adirondack home. Too funny. Mostly because I just don't have any cool-tone daubers; had to use Lemonade. The squirrel stamp is from Rubber Hedgehog and the saying is from Wordsworth. Oh, and the background is my orange kitty Scratchy, who just wouldn't move out of the way! (but also wouldn't stay still for a full body portrait..which would have been really cute!)
So, I hope everyone gets this fabulous book, and even though we're almost done, jump in and get inspired! This challenge has been a ball and has gotten me to try out techniques that I never would have bothered with, some of which are now part of my "tool-box" of techniques. I hope everyone has a very crafty week-end!
