Compendium of Curiosities Challenge

Week#5 Distress Powder

Week 5 challenge over at Studio L3 run by Linda is nearly over and I have only just managed to play today - talk about last chance coral -  yikes!!!
I have made another hanging they  just seem to be my thing to make at the moment.  Sorry no techniques as promised.  Broken China distress powder was used with the wings stamp from Tim Holtz Collection of stamps.  You will see in the background I have used last weeks techniques - I love that one - and the flowers were cut from Tattered Flowers Die, TH, inked with faded jeans and glittered with cosmic shimmer twinkles sky blush.  Wish this was "feelie vision" as the distress powder is sooooo tactile I just have to keep touching it. 

I am also entering it into the challenge at Sunday Stampers  run by Hels. The challenge which is shades of blue this week seems to fit my hanging and eeek it really is last chance for this one with only hours to go - but I missed out last week determined to play this week hopefully Linda and Hels won't mind sharing this little piece of my art; lol

Thanks for looking

Bye for now


  1. GORGEOUS hanging piece Maggie, loving that technqiue :O)) Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x

  2. Love it, totally fab piece, have magnified it so I could look closer and its even more gorgeous. Annette x

  3. Maggie, I literally "Ooh-ed" and "Ahh-ed" when I saw your card. How GORGEOUS! That has to be the coolest use of the Wings stamp I've ever seen, and with that blue color scheme it's just stunning!

    I think it's safe to say your a Distress Embossing Powder expert! And a darn good artist, too! ♥

  4. By the way, I don't mind at all if you share your submissions with other challenges. Especially with Hels-- I adore that girl! ♥

  5. Beautiful! I know what you mean about feelie-vision, it is so tactile. I like the idea of your wall hangings. Great gifts.

  6. Simply GORGEOUS!!!! I love this Maggie!


  7. I know what you mean about making a lot of hangings - I'm the same at the moment! Love your piece, the background is fab.
