Tim's July 2014 tag

So I've completed Tim's tag for July already (needed to get it done before the end of the month as we're away for a few days then!)

I've just got the 'Movers & Shapers' seahorse & sand dollar, so I added two seahorses & 'share' ...  I used a swirl embossing folder for the acetate - sort of sea-like (?) & I like the way the swirls echo the swirls of the seahorses' tails!
& I had great fun making the 'sand'!!!

Back soon!     Kay

CC3 - Challenge 5

And this time, the challenge is to use Tim's Distress watercolour technique (on page 39 of his Compendium of Curiosities vol 3).  Details as before; challenge run by Linda Ledbetter at Studio L3 and sponsored this time by Inspiration Emporium.

So I decided to make a simple watercolour card ... (stamp is a background stamp from the British company Lili of the Valley).  So I used the technique on the rose & flourish top left, then 'grunged it up' a bit!   And finally I added a diecut oval, remnant rub, & inked crinkle ribbon ...

There's another part to this technique, but that's on the following page, so it'll be another challenge, so I'll leave that until then!

Back soon!      Kay
