Compendium of Curiosities 15


Hi everyone, hope you've had a good weekend. I'm scraping in again on Linda's Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities challenge which is up to number 15 and this week it's page 53 and alcohol ink agate on grunge. I really enjoyed this one and it's such an easy and lovely technique. I stamped and embossed an Artistic Stamper jar stamp which is also embossed with white powder, the swirl stamp is by Crafty Individuals and the sentiment Paper Artsy. I attached the flowers to silver wire, some of it I curled round a pencil and I made the hanger in the same way. Off to ogle the rest of the entries this week which is always a treat :).

Zowie, Chris, this is incredible! You took that AI Agate technique to a whole new level. I LOVE the colors you used, and the stamping is great. Using white embossing powder for the jars was so smart-- they really do look like glass, and the little swirls and bubbles inside are just right. The flowers are beautiful, and the entire design is really sweet and adorable. Great work!
