I finally got my copy of Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities. This is my first entry in this challenge. The exact challenge was to create something using Distress Crackle. My background is almost like leather as I worked with it quite a bit. It doesn''t act like cardstock, but has a very flexible and soft feel. On it I did a technique called Embossed Acrylic and then lightly distressed it.
