Compendium of Curiosities 3 - Challenge 27....Embossing Diffusers

Over at
Compendium of Curiosities
Challenge # 27
 Linda and her fabulous Curiosity crew
have been playing with
Tim’s Sizzix Alterations Embossing Diffusers 
(Using page 61 of Tim's book).
 I've had the embossing diffusers for a while, they are a cool little invention that allow you selectively emboss areas of your work and so very easy to use...
It's my son's 18th birthday (the youngest of my babies!!) next month...
so I wanted to make him a tag for his pressie...
(He doesn't read my blog it shouldn't spoil the surprise!!)
Anyway, here are the main ingredients for my tag....
...and this is what I made using my Tim goodies!...
If you want to see what this challenge is all about....Hop over to Linda's Blog...
for the
Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #27
...who along with her talented Curiosity crew...have some amazing Embossing Diffuser inspiration!
...but you've got to be quick the challenge is ending very soon!
You will also need a copy of Tim's
Compendium of Curiosities Volume III book.
...and for this challenge.
The wonderful Joy and her family at Inspiration Emporium
Tim and Mario have very generously donated more fabulous prizes!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Thanks for peeking
