Tinted Christmas - Compendium Of Curiosities Week 7

Linda has set us all another great challenge this week, week 7 of the Compendium Of Curiosities.  For all the details and to view some fantastic artwork pop over to Studio L3.  As always there are some fantastic prizes on offer too.
I'm a little late posting my challenge as I did not have any fragments, but thank you to Wendy at The Stamp Attic those arrived this morning.   I have decided to create a Christmas card this week as I can then keep this for a nephew which will save me a job later in the year, see there is a method in my madness.
I have decorated a triptych with acrylic paints and sprays and Christmas stamps.
The Christmas stamps used at the front are from Inkadinkado, along with which I have added snowflakes, torn papers, and embellishments.
On the inside of my piece is where I have added the tinted fragment, this weeks challenge, the technique of which is detailed on page 55 of the book.
The colours used on my fragment are stonewashed and latte.  Have a good Thursday everyone, see you over at Studio L3 and thanks again Linda for a great challenge.  Tracy x

Wow Tracy when you do a challenge you go all out! Fabulous triptic and a great head start on Christmas!

Lynne Phelps said...

This is wonderful! I love the tryptych, do they sell those forms ready made? Very cool and you have done a fabulous job with it! Love the cool crisp blue and white, and the way you have used text throughout, just great! I think you have made these Christmas stand-up items your trademark, I just love all of them! All the dimension on the outside/back is fab too. Clearly, I need to get my hands on this book by Lord Tim of Holtz when the budget allows! Lovely work and tremendous attention to detail.
