Hey guys! Welcome to the latest installment in our biweekly exploration of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3, the new book by Tim Holtz. We’re playing with the Alcohol Ink Ombre technique this time, and the Curiosity Crew and I had a blast with these beautiful blended colors. If you’re looking for an easy way to make your card backgrounds more dynamic, well, here it is! Open up your copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 to page 57 and get the lowdown, then enter your masterpiece below.
Win a Special Prize from Tim and Mario
After the challenge closes, we’ll select a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner who will receive a goody box of Tim’s products, courtesy of Tim himself and Mario Rossi, his awesome Logistics Director (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 28, and lovely Linda Coughlin, the Funkie Junkie herself, has a fabulous $25 shopping spree for one very lucky CC3Cer! For a chance to win, be sure to link to The Funkie Junkie Boutique in your blog post!

Important Stuff to Know
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.
Ready, Set, GO!
This challenge is open through Friday, May 22. Go get inky!
