Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge 1

I used lot of Tim Holtz goodies for the first challenge which involves distress paint marbling. After I made the marbled background, I tool a TH layering stencil and did some bubbles on the background. I then stamped the seahorse from the Sea and Sand stamp set twice (once on the tag and again on a plain white piece of paper.) For the one of the white paper, I used an ink blending tool for the coloring with blue distress inks and then stickled the little guy with clear rock candy stickles and then used some pop dots to adhere him to the tag. A thanks goes out to Inspiration Emporium for sponsoring the challenge.
