Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 25 Scribble Stain Distress

This is my first entry in Linda Ledbetter's challenge using techniques from Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities.

This is a technique I have not done before, but I really love the effect.  I'm not sure that mine has turned out quite how it was supposed to!   

I swiped a  piece of card through the inks and decided to cut it into two ATCs.  Each piece was VERY different.  I used Faded Jeans, Wild Honey and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks.

I loved the effect so much I didn't want to stamp over it!

The final ATC was the last of the "swooshings".  I basically used up all the ink left on the craft mat.  Still a lovely effect though.

Jennie, welcome to the CCC! You have a beautiful blog, and your debut for the challenge is absolutely stunning! You did a fabulous job on the scribble stain distress, and created some truly peaceful, serene and gorgeous works of art with it. I like that you allow so much for the background to show-- it's definitely too pretty to cover up!

The third piece is such a great contrast to the first two, and really demonstrates the variety you can achieve with this technique.

You're a talented lady, and I'm so happy you joined us for the CCC. I hope to see you again next week!
