Compendium-of-Curiosities-Challenge week 9

As I stated last week the Compendium-of-Curiosities-Challenge that Linda over at Studio L3 is hosting has me in a Holiday mode. I guess its a good thing for I'm getting a great head start on my tags and cards this year.

This weeks challenge was Distressed Crackle another one of my favorites. I used Tim's Baroque Alterations die to cut the grungeboard and use as my base. After finishing the technique on the piece I topped it off with a double stamped and distress powdered cat from Tim's new Halloween stamp set. Layered on top of some paper from Cosmo Cricket's Haunted paper pack and wa-la.

Comments welcomed.


  1. Stephen, this is great! The crackled baroque looks awesome, and I love the distress powdered kitty! The little touches of green and magenta in the fur look SO cool! It's just a fabulous design, and perfectly spooky for the coming season!

  2. Love your kitty; love that you're doing Halloween. How fun is that? Nice work.
