Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge - Week 28 - Alcohol Ink Ombre

WOOHOO I finished this a whole day early!!  The Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge this week was Alcohol Ink Ombre.  This was the first time I ever tried this technique and I LOVED it!!!  You can find this technique in Tim's book, A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 which you can purchase here.

Their lovely sponsor is the Funkie Junkie Boutique!  They're offering up a $25 gift card!

I just got these girly TH stamps so I just HAD to use them!!

I created the flowers with the same technique.  I colored the paper first, then stamped on it and die cut the flowers.

I'm of course entering some challenges:
Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!!
