L3 Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge

Saw this challenge on Studio L3 blog today and thought I would give it a go.

The challenge was to use the technique described in Tim Holtz' Compendium of Curiosities Vol2 on page 50. Looked it up and it was a nice technique that I have tried before.

I used a couple of techniques in this one including a new one that I read about a couple of days ago that involves using a glue stick on a stamp then inking. I used the honeycomb patterned stamp to do this in the background before I did the stamping.

Quite pleased with the way it turned out!

I have also entered this in the Let's Craft and Create challenge which has the theme of Things with Wings.

Great tag! Love how you left the area around the butterflies lighter. I want to try Kaz's glue stick technique as well.
