Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Week 32

I will come back later and fill in all the juicy details, but wanted to get this posted before I leave the house today! i'm finally back online to give the 411 on this card. :). I made this for my SO's daughter who finally completed a long overdue task and has made her Father a very happy & proud man. It's a gatefold card, but I removed one of the flaps and adhered the top panel to only the upper flap. I made a pocket (for a gift card) out of the lower blue piece but didn't think to take a picture of that before giving the card to her yesterday. duh.

Paper: Club Scrap - Stratosphere, Vogue and Surf's Up Collections
Stamps: Club Scrap - Medallion and sentiment are from the Henna Kit (side note: Henna now has an amazing remix available that i must get my hands on...find it here).
Congratulations & feather are random stamps from my stash.
Ink: Tri-colored Brilliance ink pad called Peacock. Brayered onto cardstock and CS india ink for black stamping.
Embellishment: clear gem colored with my margarita green "redneck copic" (lol, Bic Mark-it's) and white inkssentials pen.
Technique: I can't tell you any specifics, but it's found in T!m's book on page 59 and its called inking and stamping masks.

A HUGE thank you to the beautiful Linda at Studio L3 for offering these challenges every week. We're winding down to the end and I and keeping my fingers crossed that I'm able to complete the rest. I have so "enjoyed the journey"!


  1. Love this card, Sis. Where are the juicy details? HA HA HA
    Seriously, I love the color way and the choice of stamps. Do I see a bit of bling, as well? Great job.

  2. Very nicely done! I love those stamps, and the masking worked great.

  3. Love the colors & your masking turned out perfectly! The colors make me think of spring.

  4. OMG, this is gorgeous, Chrissie! Your masking is spectacular and the colors are gorgeous. And how about that sentiment?? LOVE it! You rocked the CCC again, my dear!
