Studio L3 Challenge- A Birthday Card for Tim Holtz

For the final CC Challenge Linda challenged us to create a birthday card for Tim using any technique found in either Compendium of Curiosities 1 or 2.  I decided to do a technique that I've been eyeing for some time but hadn't tried yet and I love doing it!  The technique I chose is from Tim's Compendium of Curiosities book 2 and it's called Textured Layering. You can find the technique on page 54. If you don't have Tim's book/s you can purchase them on his website. This technique gives an elegant and yet masculine look which was just what I wanted for Tim's birthday card.  Be sure and check out Linda's Blog for more info on this great challenge!

Now I need to get this Card mailed off!  Happy Birthday Tim!!!


  1. The colours are fabulous - it almost looks metallic! Well done!

  2. The metallic look you got is great! Fun die for the sentiment too.

  3. That shimmer is divine... really makes the texture pop!
