Dimensional Collage Fragments

This week the Compendium of Curiosities challenge was Dimensional Collage Fragments from p.63 of Tim's book. This challenge works hand in hand with Simon Says Stamp and Show some ephemera. I chose to use the large circle fragment to work with. I dug into my stash of ephemera to create the collage behind the fragment. I included things such as a canceled stamp, monopoly money, a beverage label, a cigar band, a raffle ticket, a part of a bingo card, an ice coupon, and a glossy paper sample with the mardi gras mask.  They are collaged on a piece of paper from the Chemistry handbook. The card panel was colored with distress ink. I waterstamped over the distress ink, but that didn't scan too well. The Curiosity definition stamp is one of Tim's new stamps. The flourishes are also from Tim's collection. I love it when distress is so colorful.

Barbara, this is spectacular! What a brilliant combination of imagery and color. The Mardi Gras mask, tickets, game pieces -- and that sweet little duck!-- all work together to make a fascinating collage piece. The background is gorgeous, too! I love it.
