Compendium of Curiosities week 28 - Colourful Layered Fragments

Hi Everyone - hope your Friday is going well and that you have some lovely things planned for the weekend. I am off to the Craft show at Sandown Park, Esher tomorrow with my daughter-in-law Bev. Will let you know if we buy anything.

Woo Hoo. This week I have had a win for my CoC Masking card and a top 3 award for Stampotique Again card. How amazing is that?

This card is for my husband for Valentine Day and I am quite pleased with the outcome. It looks better IRL.

My inspiration has come from a number of challenge themes  -
Linda's amazing CoC challenge at Studio L3 - colourful layered fragments
Love and/or Valentine which can be found at Lexi's Creations, Paper Playtime, Tuesday Throwdown, Theme Thursday,
Feelings (and/or feely) at Ink on My Fingers
Hearts at Mark's Finest Papers, Totally Papercrafts,
Distressing - Crafty Purple Frog
Forgotten stamp - Crafty Catz - this stamp has been in the drawer for ages and not seen the light of day.

Please turn to page 57 for the instructions of how to make the fragment. I have used it as a spotlight over the stamped image.

TH paper from Seasonal Stack
Stamp - Tin Can Mail by Inkadinkadoo
Ideology fragment
TH Heart Wings die
Crafts Too dotty embossing folder
Heirloom Gold perfect pearls
Glossy accents and Crackle accents
DIs - vintage photo and walnut stain
Alcohol inks - Meadow, Denim, Butterscotch, Red Pepper, Gold
Other embellishments from my box of bits
Gold distress stickles

Take care - luv and hugs xoxox
