Compendium of Curiosities #7 Tinted Vision Fragments

Whew!  I'm just under the wire for this weeks Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 7 - Tinted Fragments, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to play along, with being at CHA this week, but I'm sure glad I got a change to create. Thought I'd also get a jump start on another Holiday card, so I used the vintage Santa image from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods plate.  After following the directions for Tinted Vision Fragments, I added a Chocolate  panel, and did the Torn Frames around the edges, to distress it some.h

The beautiful paper is from My Minds Eye, you probably can't tell from the photo, but there's glitter on the reindeer and snowflakes.  The cool Tag sentiment is from the 100th Collection by Tim Holtz, and the reindeer is recycled from the Tag I made in Tim's Class at CHA earlier this week.  I'm not a tag person, and Santa needed something behind him, so I thought the reindeer would be perfect!

Lisa - this is a wonderful card. I'm so loving Tim's book and his style is so awesome...I have a hard time pulling it off though. But YOU - you've really captured the true intention of this technique. Absolutely fantastic. It was good to see you at CHA...only wish we had more time, girl...we need to fix that next time!
