Shattered Stains

Week 5 of Compendium of Curiosities II challenges at Linda's is, as always, based on the latest book by t!m and this week sponsored by the wonderful Simon Says Stamp with a $25 gift certificate to one lucky player.

This week it's all about Shattered Stains. This technique can be found on page 48 of CofC II. I used the birdcage and bird die and cut my GrungePaper and also the Ornate On The Edge die which I used Broken China on. I used some of Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky Back Canvas to cut out the flourish and inked it using Shabby Shutters. The birdcage I used Pumice Stone and Shabby Shutters on to make it look old and worn. The bird is done with Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet on the wing. I used Mustard Seed, Fired Brick and Broken China distress inks to color my tag then with a spin on t!m's spritz and flick method, I used Dyan's Diamond of a Border stencil and sprayed water thru the stencil and then wiped the excess water off and dried with my heat gun.

This is lovely - I like the way you have doodled around the edges - really makes the birdcage stand out more doesnt it.

Sue, it's wonderful! I love the subtle colors-- the shattered stains look like antique porcelain! Awesome work on the CC2 Challenge!
