Learn to Pause......

Yeah!!!  Today I get to join the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #24!!!  I'm always watching what they come up with next, the design team's creations are always stunning.  This challenge is using the Remnant Rub Resist Technique which can be found on page 51 of A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3.


I might have mentioned in my last Tim's tag post that I LOVE using the Remnant rub-ons.  Seriously - they add such interest and the black is so bold - they really pop.  I love how crisp and sharp they look on my card and the contrast between them and the faded look of the stamped images in Watering Can Archival Ink.  The Remnant Rub Technique was a lot of fun and a little edgy for me to use them as Tim suggested!!  I enjoyed playing with my distress stains again too.  I added few water drops to add a little interest to the stained background and then I inked the edge of the card in Black Soot Distress Ink so that it would stand out on the paper (from Tim's Collage Paper Stash).


As I was deciding on how I wanted to put things together, I decided my image needed one more layer :)  This was a new technique for me as well.  I used some Distress Embossing Ink with Ranger Sticky Powder to add the silver foil to the image.  A new love for me now!!


The CC3C #24 is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie.


I'm also entering my card in the following:
