CC3C #7 Painted Industrial

It's late on a Friday night and I am once again waiting until the last minute to post my entry to the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge hosted by the talented Linda Ledbetter.  This challenge features the Painted Industrial technique described on page 46 of Tim Holtz's book of the same name and is generously sponsored by:

I started this project with no end product in mind.  I used the Flourish Texture Fade with the Painted Industrial technique and accented it with a faux tea rose from a previous challenge. I chose the Word Band, "Life is about creating yourself" and realized that this would make a perfect card for my boss and mentor who has chosen a new career path.  Sometimes things happen the way they are suppose to :)


  1. great take on the challenge ... Thanks for playing along with the CC3 Challenge and hope to see you again soon x

  2. Kimberly...your piece is very pretty. The embossed flourish really is lovely. Love the dimensional rose, too and nice placement of the word band. Thanks for joining us at CC3C. <3 Candy
