Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 18

This challenge is hosted by Linda at Studio L3 and sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique.

The requirement is that we do a set challenge using a technique from Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2.  The challenge was to do whitewash stamping. I am quite amazed at the effect this technique gives.  I used the technique as a background layer restamping the images not quite over the top in black archival.

Apart from the book I used Stamps from the Dylusions range by Ranger and spring colour distress inks (plus a bit of mustard seed), archival ink, picket fence distress pen and a sizzix vintag tag.  I coloured the vintag tag with promarkers alcohol pens which gives it an enamelled effect.  the mushrooms were colored in with Dylusions bubblegum pink.
