Marbled Stains Challenge

This weeks Challenge at Studio L3 is from the Tim Holtz book Compendium of Curiosities 2. I just had to participate in this one for a chance to win a gift certificate from Eclectic Paperie.  I love the marble stain technique, so easy and fun.

I used the marble stain technique on my Holly Berry House Originals Earth Whisper Medallion Stamp. I stamped the image 6 different times onto my marbled background and then heat embossed them using silver embossing powder.

I then cut out the 6 stamped images and layered them on top of each other. For the blue background on the card I used Tim Holtz stamp from the Papillon set. I inked it with Victorian Velvet and Picket Fence Distress Stain.

I should mention that I just bought the medallion stamp from Stamplistic, a wonderful local on-line store. Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Linda for another great challenge.
