Yay for Saturday, and for a shiny new Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge! We’re playing our way through the most recent book by our favorite crafty guy extraordinaire, Tim Holtz, and whether you’ve been with us all along or this is your first challenge, the Curiosity Crew and I are so glad you’re here!
This challenge makes use of Tim’s special Distress Embossing Powders. You may remember that at one time, there was an entire range of colors in this line, but Tim has streamlined the collection and now offers four perfect shades, each of which creates a unique effect. Check out page 52 in your copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3, to learn more!
Show Us What You’ve Got:
Everyone is welcome to participate in the CC3C, but you must work from your personal copy of the CC3. The Crew will not be posting technique instructions on our blogs, and participants must not, either. We require this out of respect and appreciation for all the work Tim invested in writing the book. If you don’t have a copy, you can order one directly from Tim, who will be glad to autograph it for you! If you have any questions about the challenge in general, check out the CC3C F.A.Q. here.
As always, we’ll select a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner who will receive an awesome assortment Tim’s products, courtesy of Tim himself and Mario Rossi, his Logistic Director and everyone’s favorite “Behind the Scenes” social media luminary (be sure to follow Mario on Instagram for tons of insider info!). To be eligible to win this special prize, you must visit each of our team members’ blogs and leave a comment there. You can easily access their blogs by clicking on their project photos (your comment on this post counts as your comment on my blog).
