Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #29!

OK so can it really have been 3 weeks since I have posted to my blog????
Answer : yes

Can you say really busy start to 2011? Believe it or not I have been playing along with the challenges but just not finding the time to upload and blog about it. Lame excuse I know but it is really the truth. I have missed sharing and getting feedback from everyone. I hope everyone is doing well and 2011 is our best year ever!

On to the challenge. Linda over at Studio L3 has done a great job of keeping us on track and we have learned a lot.

This week the challenge is Weathered Wood.
I used this challenge to make a birthday card. I inked mine in walnut stain over peeled paint. I love the organic feel it gave the project. A rock candy covered swirl some metal, ribbon, addage ticket and wa-la!

Oh yeah, here is a close up of the bird image I used. I took the technique that Christie over at Creations by Christie shared so I wouldn't have those pop dots showing. I really like the way it turned out. It really gave it much more dimension.
