Happy Saturday, crafty friends! It’s time for a new challenge from A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3, the latest book by Tim Holtz. Whether you’re a first-time participant or you’ve been with us from the beginning, the entire Curiosity Crew is delighted you’re here!
Challenge 26 is all about technique: Smudge Stamping. This is such a classic “Tim Look,” and it’s an easy and quick way to grunge up any project. Open up your copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 to page 42 and get the deets.
Fabulous Goodies From Tim and Mario!
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 spectacular Logistics Director and everyone’s favorite “Behind the Scenes” social media superstar (follow Mario on Instagram for sneak peeks of Tim’s latest projects)! To be eligible to win, 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).
The Funkie Junkie Boutique is back to sponsor Challenge 26, and the delightful Linda Coughlin, THE Funkie Junkie, has a fabulous $25 shopping spree to one very lucky CC3Cer! For a chance to win that shopping spree, link your project here and link to The Funkie Junkie Boutique in your blog post!

Important Stuff to Know Before You Dive In
This challenge is intended specifically for those who’ve invested in their own copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3. We don’t post instructions to the techniques for this reason. If you don’t have a copy, you can order one directly from Tim, who will be glad to autograph it for you!
We’re deeply grateful to Tim and Mario for the prizes they’ve provided, and to our alternating sponsors, Inspiration Emporium and The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Their generous support is so appreciated! To that end, entries that promote other businesses will not be eligible to win the sponsor prize OR the Curiosity Crew’s Choice.
If you have any questions about the challenge in general, check out the CC3C F.A.Q. here.
Let’s Get This Party Started!
This challenge is open through Friday, April 24. We can’t wait to see what you create!
