This card was created for Studio L3's Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2 - Challenge #17: Creative Core'dinations!
So I followed the directions in Tim Holtz' Compendium of Curiosities Vol2 on page 61 to create my beautiful embossed background piece, and if you want to try this you'll need to buy Tim's book! I have used two colours of Tim's Kraft Core Nostalgic Cardstock No.2 and No.7. Along with my Book Covers Texture Fade and Heart Wings Die.
I used some papers from Prima's Song Bird Collection (Collage and Joltz) I just found this paper range and I love it, it's got soft colours and cute images.
I also used a paper covered wooden lady/fairy I found while at a scrapbook shop yesterday, which I used Distress Stickles on her wings, but they are getting older and are really thick (anyone know how to fix this!).
I stamped Tim's Flights of Fancy Clear stamp onto a scrap of the paper, added a pearl flourish, died some crinkle ribbon with Pine Needles distress stain to match the fairies green wing section, then sprayed it with Blue Raspberry Perfect Pearl Mist to tone down the green a little.
Then I finished it with a vintage button and a beaded pin.
