Now on to my entry...you can find instruction on the technique on page 48 of Tim's aforementioned book and all the rules and inspiration over at Linda's blog. Tim and Mario have donated a terrific prize pack and Linda Coughlin over at The Funkie Junkie Boutique is the generous sponsor for this challenge.
I have been waiting for just the right occasion to use Dyan Reaveley's Skull stencil. I bought the stencil with my eldest daughter in mind. We have spent the evening packing her up to go back to college in the morning and I always like to make an inspirational card or tag to send along. You may think that the skull stencil is inappropriate for an inspirational anything...but it works if the person you are making it for is studying to be a Forensic Anthropologist :) What a great technique to make a background. My bottles are cut from Wendy Vecchi's Clearly for Art using Tim's Apothecary Bottles. I tinted them with Mermaid and Indigo Alcohol Ink and used a heating tool to give them some shape. I love the way the background is visible through the bottles...a happy surprise.
I have truly enjoyed playing along these past 16 months and look forward to Volume IV and perhaps another Challenge series. Have a great weekend! :)
