This is most certainly something very different for me. The challenge over at
Simon Says Stamp and Show   is for something Tim Holtz inspired.
I rescued a piece of corrugated cardboard to use as a base, which I tore bits off. Then used distress inks rubbed in to the card. The wings were an experiment on their own, as I kept adding more paint and embossing powder until I got something that I liked. The flower was made with my new spellbinders scalloped circles, and the watch face came from an old watch that would not work any more. I have yet to figure out a way to hang it.
I can also enter this at
Craft Your Passion as I have used a hand made flower.
The Artistic Stamper Creative Team blog
as I have used something old and something new
