A Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 3

This is my entry into A Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 3, using methods from Marbled Stains page 46 in Tim Holtz's A Compendium of Curiosities 2 sponsored by Eclectic Paperie.  I made 3 tags of Marbled Stains when I was doing Tim Holtz's online course Creative Chemistry 101 but I couldn't find them so I had to make a new one for this challenge!

These are the ingredients that I used but the method is in Tim's book so you'll just have to buy it I'm afraid.

You can see the marbling on the above picture. It produces a lovely effect.

The stamps are Flights of Fancy from the Tim Holtz Colletion using Ranger's Archival Ink, jet black.

I used an Adage Ticket from Tim Holtz's Idea-ology which I stapled to the tag using his mini attacher and finally I dyed a ribbon using Distressed Stain, peeled paint.


  1. Wow, this is a stunner Carol! What a wonderful selection of colours you chose. I love how the background turned out - it is gorgeous. The bird looks great too xx

  2. Very pretty tag!

  3. Gorgeous Carol - really love the background and the flowers!

  4. This a beautiful Tag, I don't have that set of Tim Holtz clear rubber stamps I like it...

  5. This is SO gorgeous, Carol! You marbled stains look awesome-- you chose such great colors, and the stamps compliment the look perfectly. It's springtime on a tag! Thanks so much for being part of the CC2 Challenge!
