CC2C#5 Shattered Stains

Linda from Studio L3 chose Shattered Stains challenge technique from Tim's newest book Compendium of Curiosities #2. Here is a link to this week's sponsor, Simon Says Stamp ( Out of respect to Tim, we can't share this technique to be eligible to participate. 

The challenge technique page 48; Shattered Stain was made using Tim's die cut leaves for wings. The remainder of the tag came from my imagination.
I used Stampers Anonymous image by Tim Holtz on the movers and shapers arch die cut.
One of Tim's stamp on the handmade torso. I'm sure that is a one of a kind and looks like it was made that way. I cut a slit in the paper and slipped the neck into the torso. Distress markers were used on the torso and face.
Dyan Reaveley stamp was inked and painted with distress markers.
A word stamp inked with Archival black on Invoke Arts and portion of face stamp from B-Line Designs.
The background was made with several colors of Memories Mists sprays.
Distress inks was used to ink Tim's stamp on the arch and color the seam binding ribbons to finish.
My wish list would include some of Dyan's Dylusions Spray to use on this piece.

Simon Says Stamp will give a $25 gift certificate to one lucky, randomly-selected participant in this week's challenge!

Thanks for Looking and Have a Nice Day!!
