Tim's 'Shattered Stains' Technique ...

Pin It


Happy Monday, crafty stampers ... hope your Mother's Day weekend was long and wonderful!  

Today's grungy card was created for Studio L3's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge number 5, using Tim's 'Shattered Stains' technique found on page 48 of his amazing Compendium of Curiosities, Volume II.  

This week's challenge is once again sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store and there's a $25 gift certificate up for grabs!

This card also qualifies for a number of blog challenges ... for a complete list, please see the bottom of this post.  And for the down-low on all of the exciting product I used to create this card, check out the Card Recipe.

Sheila's cousin, Jeremy, is a newly-minted attorney and eager for some work, so he offered to update Sheila and her DH's Last Wills.  They asked me to drop by this weekend and witness the signing.

When I arrived, Jeremy ushered us all into the dining room and asked us to take a seat.

"Now," he said to them, "which one of you wants to go first?"

Give it a minute ...

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!
