CCC Week 10

The weeks are flying by and we are already finishing up week 10 of the Compendium of Curiosity Challenge over at Studio L3!  If you haven't already dropped by, you don't know what you are missing!

This week we were instructed to turn to page 46 for the Distress Stickles technique.  Part of the instructions this week were to name the colors of Distress Stickles we use.  I created 3 ATCs, on each one the base the stickles were applied to is different.

The image on the "Live" ATC is a sticker (you remember those, don't you?)  I used Walnut Stain, Frayed Burlap (I think) and Scattered Straw Distress Stickles on the center of the sunflower.

On the "haunted house" ATC I used Vintage Photo, Antique Linen and Peeled Paint Distress Stickles on the cardstock tree.  (The eyes and mouth of the Jack O'Lantern  came that way and are not Distress Stickles to my knowledge.)

On the "Autumn" ATC I used  Fire Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint and a bit of Walnut Stain Distress Stickles on the grungepaper leaf.  (This ATC looks WAY better in person than it does in this photo.)

I am up to about 55 ATCs for the cruise!  Still have a bunch to go!  For those of you who asked, YES!  It IS the Tim Holtz Cruise to Canada and New England!  I am SUPER excited. 

Hope your weekend is exactly what you want it to be!



  1. I am excited for you! My friend went last year and one of these years, it will be my turn! Love all your ATC's, but the Halloween theme is really awesome!

  2. Am I jealous.........of course I much it hurts.......sob
    All terrific ATCs, love them all. Have a happy Sunday. Annette x

  3. Linda, these ATCs are FABULOUS! I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried, and the people who receive them are going to be thrilled! Hey, I DO remember stickers-- vaguely-- and I love this happy sunflower!

    I'm in such a Halloween mood right now, and your DARLING haunted house and gorgeous, sparkly autumn leaf make me want to decorate the house RIGHT NOW! Great work on all of them, and although I'm sadly not going to see you on this year's cruise, I'm SO looking forward to the west coast version in May!


  4. Very pretty! Love the sunflower!

  5. Your Autumn ATC is absolutely beautiful. I am also on the cruise and am looking forward to meeting you and trading an ATC.


  6. Hello Linda,

    nice use of your distress stickles !
    the heart on the sunflower really have dimension through the stickles and I would never had thought to use stickles on a tree, but it fits perfect !

    greetings from belgium

  7. I want to see the other two in person! I got to see the Haunted House and this picture does not do it justice either - the colors on it are amazing complete with distressed metal fencing. They all look great!

  8. OMG, that leaf is awesome, I can see it from here! and it's grungepaper?? Wow. All of them are fabulous! I seriously doubt whether I even have 20 ATC's done, horrible. Ah, how much time do I have???

  9. I love all of the pieces you created Linda, but that leaf is just GORGEOUS! The distress stickles REALLY looks good on your Fall/Autumn leaf. x o

  10. Absolutely brilliant creations!!! Love love love that haunted house ATC!! =)
    Hugs, SannaS
