hi there,
well it is time for the great compendium of curiosities vol 2 challenges , hosted but the lovely linda..and despite having made this at the weekend I am still nearly late blogging it!!!So the challenge this time is marbled stains, all the details can be found in the book, by the master himself on page 46. the sponsor is http://eclecticpaperie.com/.
so here is mine:
I love this technue and have played around with it in my own way!!! but stuck to the instructions in the book here..I tell you I dont know how Tim managed the fab marbling in the book, well he is Tim I guess!!!

I added some floral trim,stamped and layered butterflies and another piece of faux patina, as i loved it last week!!!ooh and some ideaology and some ribbon, coloured with the stains!

Sorry about all the pictures. I loved doing this tag, must do another colour next week!!!!!
