I just LOVE this technique that Tim demonstrates on page 42 in his 2nd book of Compendium of Curiosities. It's a quick and easy way to add texture to your art. And lucky for me, Linda has chosen this theme for the latest challenge, #13, on her blog. This week's challenge is being sponsored by the good folks over at Simon Says Stamp. One lucky, randomly-chosen winner, will received a $25 gift certificate for their store. If I should win, my shopping list is ready! lol Lots of new things coming out at CHA and quite a few of them are already hitting store shelves. Yes!
Only my ingredients will be listed; you'll have to get the instructions from Tim's book. I did stamp the image twice so I cut make his collar and tie stand out.
