Compendium of Curiosities challenge this week is shattered stains from p. 48 of Tim Holtz's book. I was first introduced to this technique in Creative Chemistry 101. It's a fun technique that turns out so cool. My background is done with distress stains and water. I then used a book covers texture fade to emboss the background. The bird cage was die cut using metallic paper. The bird was cut from grungeboard. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp.
I really liked how this card turned out, so I am also entering in in the Simon Says Stamp and Show anything goes challenge.
