Tim Tag for June and Compendium of Curiosities Challenge

It was so fun to get inky.  Sometimes life gets too hectic and I don't find the time to craft.  Crafting keeps me balanced and is a huge stress reliever for me. I needed to sit and play.
I was able to fit two challenges into one tag! This will work for the Tim Holtz June tag and the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #5.  This Compendium challenge is sponsored by The Inspiration Emporium.

I tried several backgrounds for this tag.  I started with stars, but decided the rays worked better.  I added some crackle paint to add another layer of dimension.  I can't tell you how I colored the main focal image, you need to look at your Compendium of Curiosities 3 to find out!  

My Paula bow.  

I hope you like it. 
What have you been crafting?

  2. Nice job, Jess. Your very cool image and sentiment are beautifully colored using the watercoloring technique. The embossed rays in the background make for such an interesting look shooting out from behind your Gloria Steinem inspired art. Thanks so much for sharing your art with us at CC3C. <3 Candy

  3. I love those touches of purple in the ribbon and the metal flower, repeated more subtly on your focal image. Lovely!

    1. Thank you Cheryl Purple is my favorite color and I don't use it as much as I would like to in my work.

    1. Thank you Julia. It's a tough image to use since it is so bold. I like the subtle background and then the focal image being brighter.
