Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #33

I made this for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #33 at Studio L3. I can't say how I used the inks, you will have to purchase Tim Holtz book.

I did not have anything metal so I used aluminium foil and ran it through my Cuttle Bug. I also used the ink to color the ribbon and the rhinestones. I am so excited I can color them now! Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE THE BLING!! I have a 3lb bag of rhinestones in my drawer just waiting to be used, lol!

I also received my Cricut Swap back today, so I used 2 pieces from the "Things that fly" group. I am sorry, but I don't know who made them because the names where not on the back.

I wrapped the ribbon onto the inside of the card so I would not have to cut the ribbon, so I hide the seam with a cut out stamp and another cut from my Cricut Swap group.
Thanks for the challenge Studio L3! I learned alot!

  1. Love how you have used your Alcohol inks on the ribbon & rhinestones as well. This is why I have lots of AI so versatile Great use of the foil (that's a metal) so I wouldn't worry about that. Great card

    love Dawn xx

  2. Oh, I want to BE that happy, lounging frog-- he looks so relaxed! This is a darling card, Erika, and you did a gorgeous job on the inked foil. The embossing is great! And, oooh yeah! I love that bling, too. It's fabulous!

  3. Oh this is just too darn cute! Love your background and the froggie is awesome!
