The Compendium of Curiosities Challenge - Week Two

 

FRAGMENTS BASICS
Wow, we're in week two of the challenge...where did the last 7 days go?
If you're new to this, check out Linda's blog for all the details.
This week the challenge technique is "Fragments Basics," found on page 62 of Tim's book.  I was feeling a little whimsical, and used the technique to create my "fragmented traveling man":

I got a little more practice in the water stamping from last week's challenge on my background paper.  Sneaky me.  Used some Heidi Swapp clear extras as well as paper from Tim's Lost and Found stack.  Finished it off with some travel stamps.
Congrats to the prize winners from week 1, and my fingers are crossed for this week's giveaways on both Linda's blog and the ATT group.  Yep, more prizes, so go create something!

Fun card, you've inspired me. Wish I wasn't tied up at work so that I could be home stamping, but at least I have some good daydreaming material now.

Eileen, I love your travelling man, and how you have everyone convinced that you created him just for Week 2. I suspect you have a little collection of these special men, ready to be called upon as needed. Can't wait to see who shows up for the cruise!
