Shattered Stains


This week Linda at StudioL3 has guided us to Page 48 of Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities Vol.2.
The Technique we are to try is Shattered Stains.
Simon Says Stamp are the sponsors of this Challenge 5


The stamps I used  making this tag are by Indigo Blu and Inkylicious.
Distress inks were, Tumbles Glass and Victorian Velvet for shading.
The Butterflies were made using a Sizzix die .
So what did I do to the butterflies?  all is revealed on Page 48.
Needless to say I will be buying more Distress stains when I next visit a Craft Shop.

I will be entering this tag into the challenge at-
Simon Says Stamp and Show--Anything Goes.

Thank you for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.
