Hello, beautiful friends! It’s time for the 27th installment of the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge, based on the latest book by crafting superhero, Tim Holtz. Whether you’ve been with us from the beginning or are joining in for the first time, welcome!
This new challenge introduces Tim’s Sizzix Alterations Embossing Diffusers, a brilliant little invention that allows you selectively emboss areas of your artwork. These things are cool, and very easy to use. I’ll admit, they intimidated me when I first heard about them, but once I played with them, they turned out to be a cinch! Check out Tim’s tutorial on page 61 of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 to see them in action.
Our Simple Rules
Everyone is welcome to participate in the CC3C, but you must work from your personal copy of the CC3. If you don’t have the book, you can order one directly from Tim, who will be glad to autograph it for you. While we don’t have a lot of rules, one we take very seriously is our requirement to not share the challenge technique on your blog. We want our participants to support Tim by purchasing his book!
If you have any questions about the challenge requirements, please check out the CC3C F.A.Q. here.
Oh, heck yes. We’ve got PRIZES!!!
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 rockstar (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).
