Wow, it's only Tuesday and I've finished my Compendium of Curiosities II challenge piece. This week the challenge is blended stains from p. 45 of Tim Holtz's book. This weeks challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.
For the blended stains technique, Tim gave several technique ideas. I decided to try the technique with canvas (sticky back canvas from Ranger). Once I had finished with the technique I die cut the canvas with the vintage Cabinet Card die. I stamped portions of several of the stamps from Travel Labels, I die cut the movers and shapers globe. Stamped and cut out the airplane. Then I stamped the sentiment on a ticket. The background panel was dry embossed using a texture fade. I like how everything fell together on this card. This technique is one I've used often. It's so easy and effective.

Great card! I like the idea of applying the technique to canvas. I'll have to give that a try!
