Challenge 3, Tim Holtz

Hi Everyone
This weeks challenge is Marbled Stains from A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2, page 46 from the lovely people at Studio L3.  This week it is sponsored by eclectic paperie.

I really enjoyed making this tag, really simple but an effective background.  I can't share the technique but I can share what I made.

Materials Used:
  • Tim Holtz Stamps
  • Tim Holtz distress inks and stains
  • Ribbon
  • Coloured staples
  • WOW clear embossing powder

I decided to make this a blue 'marble' effect' on the tag, then stamp over it to give depth.  The first layer is just stamped, the second, stamped and embossed.  Then the ribbons with blue coloured staples added a third dimension. 

Speak soon



  1. Spectacular tag, Sue!!! Your marbled stain work is just perfect, and the tone-on-tone stamping gives it such an elegant feel. As always, you've made a CC2C masterpiece!!!

  2. Gorgeous tag very soft, delicate & pretty!
