Compendium of Curiosities Challenge # 31 Distress Palette
We are getting ever closer to the end of the Studio 3 Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2 challenges.
This week's subject is the third of Tim's ink palettes, this time using Distress inks. I love a bit of painting so it was very enjoyable to make this card. The stamp is one I bought at the NEC from Ali-Craft. It's by Lost Coast designs, (thankyou Netty x) I love it and can see it joining the ranks of my favourites. I cannot reveal the technique used out of courtesy to Tim, however you can find full details on page 51 of the Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2. There's still time to get your order in fore Christmas. Many thanks to Linda for hosting these brilliant challenges.x
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
