World of Imagination

The 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.

So, SO gorgeous, Barbara! The colors are so rich and elegant, and the little bird looks great with the shattered stain work. Great texture and the perfect sentiment, too!
