Hi all, last week was an exhausting week at work and this weekend I was so tired my mojo was seriously lacking when it came to my craft room...I didn't do anything yesterday at all. But today I was determined not to miss out on the last couple of weeks of the Compendium of Curiosities challenge. I have loved this challenge which is hosted by Linda at 'Studio L3' though I have missed some weeks through lack of necessary tools/ingredients, and, like this week have had to use a little artistic licence sometimes! Well anyway, this idea has been humming about in my head since I saw that this week was P56 but it nearly didn't happen when I couldn't find my metal sheets....half an hour of searching drawers and folders later (and a few naughty words)...this card began..I also wanted to enter the challenge at 'Less is More'. a new blog which I have been looking at but hadn't got round to entering til now so I made a CAS card using the inspiration colours from The Play Date Cafe and the Less is More recipe of 3 Squares.
I coloured the Penny Black image with Pro-markers, cut with a nestie and added faux stitching. The second square is a lace pattern stamped in distress inks.
