Shattered Stains

Goodness I nearly forgot to post this...but got here just in time. Here is my tag for this weeks Compendium of Curiosities 2 challenge, happening over at Studio L3. The challenge this week is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.
Linda asked us to try the shattered stains technique that can be found on page 48 of Tim Holtz's book. I used this chipboard butterfly and don't think I quite got it right as it didn't all colour but I kinda like it anyway. I shall have to practice.
I've used another technique to make the tag background, inspired by "Just us Girls" who's challenge this week was to use generational stamping, which I've done with this Butterfly stamp.I've used Pumice stone and worn lipstick Distress inks. 
I'm also sharing this here - 
Looking forward to seeing which technique Linda chooses for us all tomorrow, Thanks for popping over....Esther xx

  14. How beautiful, Esther! I love the colors-- the shattered stained butterfly looks absolutely gorgeous. The background is lovely, too. As always, you did a fabulous job on the technique!

  15. This is a wonderful tag and I really love the fact that nature took its course and didn't colour all of it as you wanted, makes for a super individual piece of art.


  16. Oooh, this is lovely Esther, and that background is stunning. Your butterfly is gorgeous - I love the effect of your stains.
