Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 25

I haven't been posting as much lately, but I'm back for the New Year.
I have two exciting announcements. I am  now a Design Team member for Artistic Outpost stamps. I am so happy since I love AO stamps so much. And I am a Guest Designer for Kitchen Sink Stamps for the month of January. The KSS stamps are also some of my favorites.
Here's today's blog image.

The Compendium of Curiosities challenge this week is Scribble Stain Distress from p. 34 of Tim's book. I thought that I would use some brighter ink for the background, so I went with Fired Brick along with Tattered Rose and Dried Marigold. The background was stamped with stamps from Tim's regal findings and slight alterations sets. The bird cage and bird were die cut. The ticket and sentiment are stamped from odds and ends. It feels good to be back doing challenges.

Barbara, huge congrats on your AO design job and KSS guest spot! They're both awesome lines, and are lucky to have you!!!

I absolutely adore your scribble stain distress card! The background is fabulous, but what I love even more is the theme-- the bird broke free from her cage and is flying off to live her dream! What a beautiful way to start the new year!

I hope your holidays were wonderful, and I love the new photo of you with those gorgeous kids! Happy 2011!
