CC3C #7 Painted Industrial you may have noticed that the previous post said CC3C #4 and this one is #7.  Where did #5 and #6 go?  Remember how I said that I was not going to purchase any additional supplies this year? Well, if I don't have everything I need to complete a challenge, then I skip it and hope I can participate in the next one.

So, Hurrah! I had everything I needed to complete this wonderful Painted Industrial challenge and I really love this technique.  In fact, I thought my soon-to-be 11 year old grandson would love it, too so my project is his birthday card.  He reads incessantly (and NOBODY is complaining about that!) so I thought he would enjoy a tag bookmark that matched the card.

I hope you enjoy this project. If you would like more information on the techniques we are working through, purchase Tim Holtz' latest book, Compendium of Curiosities III...he will even sign it for you if you buy though this link!

Each odd-numbered challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium where they give a $50 gift certificate to a randomly selected entrant.  How wonderful is that?  And the winner of each challenge gets a box of goodies from Tim Holtz himself (more than likely mailed by his trusty side-kick Mario).

Here is my entry for Challenge #7:

Thanks for checking in!



  1. What a fun birthday card. I'm sure your grandson will love it. That bookmark is my favorite though. Love that! What a great idea and I agree that it's great he's a reader. He'll get lots of great use out of that wonderful bookmark now. Thanks for playing along in the CC3 Challenge. I'm glad you had all the supplies for this one. :)

  2. He will love this, especially the bookmark! So cool! Thanks so much for joining on this metalicious challenge at CC3Challenge!!!

  3. Hi Cindy! I'm so glad that you had the supplies for this challenge because your birthday card/bookmark for your grandson's birthday is awesome! I know he will love it. Great job on the painted industrial technique! Thanks for joining us at CC3C. <3 Candy
