CC3C #24 Remnant Rub Resist

Good Friday evening.  My folio from the last challenge is still a work in progress, but I was able to complete the latest challenge in the nick of time.  I am, of course, referring to the Compendium of Challenge hosted by Linda Ledbetter.  You can find out all about the challenge based on Tim Holtz's A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III here.  This latest challenge is sponsored by Linda Coughlin over at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
I used this challenge to purchase more of Tim's Remnant Rubs...Botanical and Numbers.  I created a card to celebrate Earth Day...this year is the 45th anniversary of this special day.  I am embarrassed to say that I can remember the very first Earth Day.  I was in second grade and we each took a sapling home to plant.  It was a special day :)  Using the technique described on page 51 of Tim's book, I used the Botanical and Numbers Remnant Rubs.  I used Mowed Lawn, Broken China, and Vintage Photo for my background colors. I also added  the harlequin and bird's nest stamp with Jet Black Archival ink to the background.

My mini tag is stamped with Tim's mini globe blueprint and water colored with Mowed Lawn and Broken China Distress Ink.  I then stamped the date of Earth Day and finished with crinkle ribbon colored again with Broken China and Mowed Lawn.  The vellum envelope is tinted with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and embellished with a Nature Adornment highlighted with Broken China Distress Paint.
 Finally, I used Seasonal ChitChat stickers to create the message.  I cannot tell you how difficult it has been to write this blog post while watching a basketball is March Madness :)
