CC3 Challenge 3: Avonlea Bookmark

Compendium of Curiosities 3 (Tim Holtz) Challenge 3:

Dear scrappers,

I got inspired my the great Tim and his Compendium of Curiosities 3 and his faux tea roses challenge at Linda Ledbetter's blog:

The CC3 challenge 3

I decided to use this cute technique for my next class: CTMH bookmark mini book.

I used some bassil papers for the roses and CTMH Avonlea and solids paper pack for the rest of the book:

I distressed the tea roses using ranger's distress inks and metallic rubons...

They were easy to make and look so awesome.

I also got to use my new toy: the Cricut Explorer and make these fotomats in no time:

I hope my students enjoy this fun project and can learn this useful technique :-)
