Compendium of Curiosities - CC3 Challenge 8


Hi Everyone, I decided to get my entry ready for the CC3 challenge, I don't think it's up to my usual standards and after several mistakes I very nearly didn't post it. My daughter who works as Cabin Crew was diagnosed with Scarlet Fever at the weekend, she thinks picked it up on the plane. She is thankfully out the woods now but it has been an awful few days and made anything hard to concentrate on.   


I do like the effect on my backgrounds so I decided just to go ahead with my post and you will find how to do this on Page 58 of Tim's new book.

I will show you the picks now.




Please forgive me if I have missed your blog updates but will visit soon.

  20. Julie...what a clever interpretation of the faded layers challenge! I love what you've done with this to use the faded layers on each of your card panels. I love this Karen Burniston die cut! Your faded layers are beautiful and I like the stamping you've done on each to create such a lovely card. Thanks for joining us at CC3C. <3 Candy
