Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 18

This week Linda Ledbetter has challenged us to use the Whitewash Stamping technique from Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities Volume II, sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

This is actually my second attempt at the technique; version 1 met with a slight accident (I thought I'd put the top back on the tube of glue nice and securely - turns out I was mistaken!)  I used a different stamp and colour palette for the first attempt and snippets of it will probably turn up in future projects.  The stamp I used was a foam stamp designed for home decor.

Sometimes I have a clear idea of how I want a project to look, and sometimes I have no clue of where it will end up.  This was one of the times when I had nothing much in mind.  The background suggested an underwater scene, so I rummaged through my box of bits and found these polymer clay embellishments left over from a previous project.  A bit of gold netting and some Kanban dew drops and there we are!

Keren, this has a positive dream-like quality to it. The background is sublime and works so well with the embellies. Love it. Hugs, Buttons x

This is brilliant!! I love the seashells and seahorse on the tag. What a great make and this kind of thing is very popular at the moment.
