It's been a cool, gloomy day today--the perfect day to work in my basement studio. I created this card with three challenges in mind. The Compendium of Curiosities II challenge is to create something with the Creative Core'dinations technique from p. 61 of Tim Holtz's book. City Crafters shared an image (Papillons) from Graphics Fairy which we were to use in our creation. Marks Finest Paper Simple Salutations challenge theme is butterfly.
This weeks Compendium of Curiosities challenge is being sponsored by the generous Simon Says Stamp. My card demonstrates both techniques discussed by Tim. The frame around the image shows one of the techniques and the leaves at the bottom shows the other. For complete details see p. 61 of Compendium of Curiosities II.
The large butterfly is the image from the Graphics Fairy. The smaller stamped image with sentiment is from Club Scrap.
