Here we are again another week and another CC Challenge from the lovely Linda at StudioL3, for those of you who may have just dropped in or been on another planet maybe CC is A Compendium of Curiosities book from Tim Holtz, hop over to Linda's blog and find out about all the fun we are having. Oh and I almost forgot some fabby news about prizes etc.

This weeks challenge is Tinted Vision Fragments, so I have made an ATC for this weeks page in my book,which was taken from TH paperstack Retro Grunge they are already sized,  Fab; which I have stamped and inked within an inch of its life; LOL. I've made it easy this week as I don't have much time to play and used stamps from TH collection Regal Flourish, Lion was stamped in black versafine as were the corners, DI barn door was used for the flourishes around the Lion, edges were inked with barn door, black soot. The fragment was....................nope sorry can't say ( you will have to get the book and join in.) Alcohol Inks used were red pepper, pebble, pitch black then this was attached with glossy accents over the lions head.  When dry I added some distress crackles to the edge - not sure now if it needed it -  oh well to late!
Background (book page) was cut with Nestabilities die and DI scattered straw barn door and black soot were applied.

Background music page was DH's find at a car boot and he left it lying around - what can I say he may never see it again -  rofl.

Thanks again for all the comments and support last week, there was some fab art again by everyone. I will try and pop by as many blogs as possible to see this weeks fantastic art and leave comments.

Bye for now
