Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 2 Fragments

Another week, another technique from Tim Holtz's book Compendium of Curiosities. This week we are doing Fragments Basics on p. 62. For my piece I used stamp images from Quietfire and the sentiment from Club Scrap. I used my fragment over one of the stamped images. The background is copper which I embossed in one of the textured fades, bricked. I sanded the raised areas for a bit more of a distressed look.

Great Background! So did you copper emboss and then run through the embossing folder. I really like the metal/copper look background.
