Simon Says Stamp and Show the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 11

This week Simon Says Stamp and Show  and the Compendium of Curiosities challenges went hand-in-hand. The Simon Says Stamp challenge was to create anything Lord Tim of Holtz inspired! The CCC challenge was the Blended Batik technique from p. 36 of Tim's great book.
Everything on this card is from the Tim Holtz line of products. The background is inked with chipped sapphire and stormy sky distress inks. The postal card stamp is from Stampers Anonymous, Tim's line as is the sentiment. I stamped the saying and then cut it into the individual word blocks. The bird cage is die cut using grungepaper and inked with rusty hinge. All of the hardware embellishments are from the Idea-ology line. The fragments are glued over Tim's tissue tape.
It is so great to be doing all of these techniques from Tim's book. This will be another page for my technique sample book.

Barbara, this is awesome! You designed it perfectly, and did a brilliant job with the blended batik process. It was a great idea to cut apart the words-- it makes this piece all the more dynamic, as do the sweet music note charms. I love it!
