Compendium of Curiosities #32

This is my card for Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge where this week's technique is inking and stamping masks. The technique is on the inner panel of my card. I also had fun learning a new background technique following the tutorial by Shelly Hickox on Gingersnap Creations this month for faux copper verdigris. Such a wonderful effect! - be sure to check out Shelly's tutorial and try it; her steps break down the process perfectly and make it really easy to do. Stamps used: flower: Rubber Stampede, tile motif: Stampendous, flourish: Crafty Individuals, script: Hero Arts

Ooh la la, this is gorgeous, my dear! That rose is beyond elegant, and your masking is perfect. The background is fantastic as well (that Shelly is one talented lady, as are you!). Your work is always so classy.
