Back to the Compendium

I can't remember when I last entered a Compendium of Curiosities II challenge on Linda's blog. However, when I saw the absolutely beautiful tag Linda created with Tim's Blended Stains technique, I had to try it.   I love the techniques, but I want to be able to convert them to cards.  This is a challenge sponsored by one of my favorite online stores, Simon Says Stamp.  (I used a pre-cut white ATC for the stain background, stamped in black Memento ink, accented with a gold pen, and added dots of gold Liquid Pearls.)

Hello Evelyn
This card ooozes with warmth, in fact it is darn hot!. Your leaves are sizzling amongst the hot Orange and the richness of the Red tones.
My instance response on seeing the mix is Wow! Your Green Bg balances it out beautifully.
A stunner of a card..
I would love you to join us at Our Creative Corner this week.
Smiles:)

Yes----this is it!!!! If you just did the tag, it would have been great. But this with your background, is fantastic.
Thank you. And good news--I have some of the products already.
