End of Compendium-or is this the Beginning

Linda Ledbetter over at Studio L3 blog, has posted the final challenge to the compendium of curiosities and it is a birthday card for Tim Holtz. We have been working from Tim's books and I hope there is a book three in the making. Tim has shared so much knowledge about paper crafting with us. I hope you have his books at home too.

Today I was also inspired by another crafter from across the pond. Kaz Hall over at The Little Shabby Shed does some amazing work and posted a great tutorial today. be sure to go watch it.  I have posted a video for you too. it shows another version of creating backgrounds that was inspired by Kaz.

So here is the card I made using the marble background I created and some of Tim's goodies. If you want to know how to make the paper, watch the video.  I used Denim, Peeled Paint, Eggplant and Spiced Marmalade inks for the background. Happy Birthday Tim. I hope it is as special as you are.
