Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge - #5

butterfly tag2 w border.jpg

Continuing my participation in the CC2Challenge over at Studio L3, this week’s technique is showcased in Tim Holtz’s book, page 48. For my “take” on the shattered stain technique, I chose a butterfly (new creation) theme. I used Wild Honey Distress Stain and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink on a background paper from one of Tim’s kraft resist paper stacks. The label behind the computer-generated Scripture reference is cut from grungeboard using the Movers and Shapers Labels die and then inked with Fired Brick Distress Stain. This week’s challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Your colors are incredible!! You did a wonderful job with this technique.

If I lived closer I would adopt one of those kittens! We used to have a Siamese and he was a great cat.
