Compendium of Curiosities week 25

I just had to have a go at this today - need to keep myself busy and I hate missing Linda's fabulous challenges over at Studio L3. This one is 'scribble stain distress' and you can find the deets on P.34 of the great book itself (The Compendium of Curiosities).

For some reason I still have rhymes and poems as a theme in my head (see The Stamp Man ATC blog) and 'This is the house that Jack built' seemed most appropriate.

Supplies used -
TH dies - Rickety House and On The Fence
Crealies die for foliage.
Flowers from stash.
DIs - stormy sky, bundled sage, chipped sapphire, vintage photo, fired brick.
Re-inker - vintage photo
TH stamp - birds
Cosmic shimmer mist - rich gold and red firefly
TH embossing folders - branch tree and notebook

The backing paper for the main piece is where I have used the scribble stain distress technique.

Hope all is well with you. Thanks for stopping by.

Luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

What a spectacular card, Brenda! I wish I could move into this sweet house with its happy sunflowers and blue skies. Everything about this is perfect-- the scribble stained background, the texture on the house and fence, the flock of birds--- beautiful!

I wish you a wonderful 2011, and I'm so delighted that you joined CCC 25. See you next week!!!
