Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2 Challenge 1

I haven't played in a challenge in quite a while but when Linda over at Studio L3 started the Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2, I knew I was all in.

This week the challenge was to create your own custom foam stamp using the technique from Tim's book.

Below is my submission.

I really layered up the background along with over stamping both the font and the custom stamp I made from the dress form die. I love the overall vintage feel of the results.


  1. Fabulous as always!

  2. Is the white a paint dabber on a stamp or something you did freehand with a brush? I like the look of it.

    1. Its a Picket Fence Distress Marker, freehand

  3. I'm so glad you joined in Stephen, and as always your art is breathtaking! There's something almost hypnotic about the contrast between those rich, warm tones and the dramatic black and white. Spectacular work, and I'm honored that you helped launch the new challenge series!

  4. Oh, my! The dress form as stamp = fantastic! Love your tag.

  5. What a gorgeous tag, the details are amazing
