Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #4 Layering Stencils/Texture Paste

This ended up being a two part project- I originally had this idea for merely the tag. But since the new Challenge was using the texture paste with the layering stencils, I decided to go ahead and make a patriotic background as well.  This card incorporates sp many of  Tim's products, I just love it.

The tag itself was made using layering stencils with texture paste for the stars and distress ink for the stripes.  I used Tim's rosette die to create the ribbon and his blueprint stamp USA (cut out with my Stamp 2 Cut), then water colored and glossy accents to give dimension and texture.

The background is a full on flag made by repeating the layering stencil stars using texture paste.  I then colored over each section with the Distress stains, wiping off the stars (as a resist) when I was finished.  And YES that is white distress stain Picket Fence in the middle layer- LOVE that!!.  A little black soot around the edges to grunge it up!

I am entering this in the CC3C #4 which can be found here


  1. I love that it's a two part project. Your tag is fabulous and I love the stencils you used!

  2. Hi Pam. I really like your patriotic piece! Tim's blueprint USA looks amazing on top of the rosette star and ribbon tails. Your red, white and blue star embossed background makes for a very "artsy" flag backdrop! Love it! Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
