Challenge 8 is the faded layers from page 58 of the Compendium of Curiosities. This always challenges me as I'm not sure is I'm getting it right but here goes!
I coloured the coated card with currant, terra cotta and raisin alcohol ink then used the Tim Holtz stencil crocodile to produce the faded layer effect. This was then echoed on the other side of the card with picket fence distress stain. The dragonfly blueprint stamp and the small butterfly stamps were stamped in black archival. The wings of the stamped dragonfly were coloured with a mixture of citrus and sail boat blue alcohol inks.
The large dragonfly was cut from textured silver card using the Tim Holtz die layered dragonfly and coloured with the citrus and sailboat blue alcohol ink as before. The wings of the dragonfly were cut from acetate using the same die and embossed using the corresponding embossing folder then coloured with the same alcohol inks.
The body was some some 'novelty' stickers I had in my stash and I like the oil on water look they had.
I finished with the sentiment and a word band from Idea-ology. I swiped the band with picket fence distress stain to pick out the words and cleaned off the excess, then attached it using some pink twine.
Thanks to The Funkie Junkie for sponsoring this challenge and of course to Linda for starting this creative madness in the first place! Such Fun!
