CofC # 2


Gosh its hot this week! and I have a tiny confession no idea what is happening in the football, must be one of a very small group of people at least here in the UK.

Linda's new weekly challange taking us through 'A Compendium of Curiosities' is published every Monday but it takes a day or two to work out what to do. This week we are to refer to page 62 and use the technique published there. Loads of fabulous entries to be seen On the Challenge

Mentioned yesterday that I have a old map or two, this is the same one of the North West of England printed onto acatate. Fragment one picks up part of the map left over from yesterdays canvas. The car is a Tanda stamp embossed in black and is coming through the map, papermaina papers for the arrows above and below the acetate. The second fragment covers a butterfly kisses sentiment stamped onto the arrow pattened paper.

  2. Zoe, I love your vintage map art! The use of the fragment is so clever, and the old-time car and sentiment are just perfect!

    Thanks so much for playing again this week! Can't wait to see more!

    Hugs,
    Linda

  4. Hi Zoe

    What a great idea using an actual map,I ought to try and rememebr this idea as I ahve some vehicle stamps hidden somewhere and would make great male cards.

    You were probably better off crafting that watching the footie, it was really bad for the blood pressure.
