Challenge 15: Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge
Sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!
Good morning, all you enormously talented CCCers! We set our all-time record for the number of submissions last week!!! Ninety-three gorgeous, masked masterpieces graced this blog. How cool is THAT?! A warm welcome to all the new participants, and thanks to EVERYONE for sharing your wonderful art here.
It's Week 15 (holy cow!), and time for a new challenge from that awesome book we all know and love. Please open your Compendium of Curiosities to page 53, where you'll find Tim's cool technique for Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge! If you've done this before, you know how much fun it is. If this is your first time, you are SO in for a treat!
This week's challenge is sponsored by our fabulous friends at Simon Says Stamp! Heidi, Steph and the gang have been avid and amazing supporters of the CCC from Day 1, and besides having an incredibly cool online store, they're also just really nice people. They'll be offering a $25 Gift Certificate to the winner of CCC #15— just in time to grab some of those awesome new Alterations Dies... or Halloween Stamps... or.... ooh, the imagination runs wild with possibilities!
Remember to check out the always-inspiring Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog, too! They host a wonderful new challenge each week, and you're always welcome to combine it with the CCC challenge if you can.
All Things Tim group at Yahoo, lovely List Mom Gloria will again send a sweet gift to one of this week's participants! Simply upload your project photo to the Compendium of Curiosities folder at the group's home page, and be sure to tag your photo "CCC #15."
To be eligible to win one (or both!) of these prizes, simply create a work of art that incorporates the Alcohol Ink Agate on Grunge technique, and link it here using the InLinkz button at the end of this post. There are just Two Simple Rules:
1. Follow the technique as it's written in A Compendium of Curiosities; and
2. Out of fairness to Tim, please don't post the instructions on your blog!
Ready to roll? This challenge is open until 8:00 pm (MDT) next Sunday, September 26. I know we're going to see some insanely gorgeous art this week, and I can't wait!
---NEWSFLASH---As many of you know, Tim and Mario and a bunch of lucky crafters are setting sail on a New England cruise that begins on September 29. Since quite a few of our regular CCC participants are going to be on that cruise and will have extremely limited access to the internet, I'm going to extend NEXT week's Challenge (#16) to two weeks. We'll be offering a very special prize package, and, well, who knows what else might happen! I'll have all the details for you next Monday!
