Compendium of Curiosities 11 and Simon Says Stamp and Show 3


Hi everyone, hope you're having a good weekend so far. I've made a tag today for lovely Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 11 Blended Batik and also for Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything inspired by Tim Holtz. I've followed TH's technique for the blended batik to make the coloured background of the tag. I've added some gold stamping over the top and lines with a gold pen, some inked leaves, TH's die cut swirl which I've cut to suit, a gorgeous Prima flower, some dimensional gold paper for the corners and some pretty ribbon to finish off. I'm off now to have a look at some of this weeks entries, they're all very beautiful. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
