The challenge is based on pg55 of the third volume of Compendium of Curiosities which is Rock Candy Distress Glitter.
Here is my take:
True to my task of trying to start using old/unused stash the decorative strip bird die has had its first outing on this tag despite being bought last September and also the rock candy glitter has only just been opened and I have had that for even longer!!
The tag uses the artful birds stamp set with the birdcage following the technique on pg 55. The tag was inked with Victorian Velvet and Dusty Concord with all stamps inked up with Walnut Stain. The bird is handcut out and also inked over with Victorian Velvet and then given a covering of glossy accents for a nice finish.
The pink flowers are Tims tattered floral die done up in 3d - if you want to see how to make them I have a YouTube video showing you how on my sidebar - the book page flowers are from a sizzix die that I won last year. The garden greens are coloured with Peeled Paint ink, stamped with a script stamp and then have a light dusting of heirloom gold perfect pearls so they are a bit sparkly too.
If you would like to join in with the challenge the details are here over on the awesome Linda Ledbetters website. You could not only win a fabulous prize from Tim and Mario but you get entered into a random draw for a fabulous $50 prize from The Inspiration Emporium. How exciting is that!
Have had a lovely morning making this - might just go and do another one now.....
