White Wash Stamping and More

Until a couple of weeks ago, I had never missed a Compendium of Curiosities challenge, neither book 1 or book 2. However, because I was busy spending time with my grandson before school began, I had to sit out both challenge 15 and 16. This card incorporates three challenges from Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities II:  #15 - enameled metals p. 56; #16 - perfect pearls mist p. 54; and the current challenge #18 - white wash stamping p. 47. This weeks Compendium challenge is being sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique. The layout of the card is based on this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge (turned on its side).
The black panel of the card was done with the perfect pearls mist technique. Although you can see the beautiful colors a little on the scan, in person they are phenomenal.  The strip across the bottom shows the enameled metals technique. I just love the distresses look. The butterflies on the middle panel show the white wash stamping technique. I decided to use the Club Scrap birthday sentiment because I thought that the distressed look fit with the card. It was so much fun to be able to use all three techniques on my card.
