Linda's challenge for week 3 of Compendium of Curiosities II by t!m Holtz is being sponsored this week by Eclectic paperie. Our challenge this week is on page 46 and you can purchase the book from
tim's website from the link above. Again, I won't be sharing the technique out of respect for t!m.
This is called Marbeled Staining and I used Victorian Velvet, Dried Marigold and Broken China Distress Stains in addition to Picket Fence. Once I had dried the stains, I hit it with a couple of t!m's stamps from the Mixed Media set and added some of my own doodling around the chicken wire. I used my mannequin die and added a set of Grungeboard wings that I used both gold and silver Paint Dabbers on then sanded a bit to show the wear and tear wings get from use! I also found a crown and painted it gold and added some green and blue gems from my stash. The pin is also from my stash and I added some white and blue seed beads to it.
