Pin It

Happy Stump Day, hampers ... hope you're enjoying a fabulous week!  

Today's altered tag was created for Studio L3's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge number 6, using Tim's 'Tissue Wrap Collage' technique found on Page 38 of The Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 2.  This week's challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique ... which just happens to be one of my favorite places to shop!  There's still time to play along ... and there's a $25 Gift Certificate to The Funkie Junkie Boutique up for grabs!

Oooh, fabulous job with this technique, Deb! The colors are just sensational and I really like the way you used several pieces of Grungeboard under the tissue wrap. I can almost hear the birdies singing! You've really inspired me to get going on this challenge.

Thanks for the shout out on the boutique too - have a terrific Memorial Day weekend.

Hugs,
Linda

What an amazing tag!! I only wish mine came out looking like this. Right now, I'm doing teacher gifts and consoling myself with the idea that I can at least just say the KIDS made the tags...
