Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge #9

Challenge #9  comes from page 63. We are playing with these fun Sizzix Alteration Framelits!  I love the combo of a sizzix die and stamp set that works together. Tim has a few of them out and at this moment I only own one set.

I decided I needed to get a gift box ready. I used the Tim Holtz sizzix jumbo flower die for the first time and I just LOVE it! I thought I would be able to work the butterflies into my project.

The butterflies come from the  "french flight" sizzix framelit set. I stamped the butterflies onto watercolour paper, that I coloured with distress markers. Once dried, I added a layer of crackle paint. Once the crackle paint was set I filled in the cracks with distress inks.

Here is a close up

From each challenge, the curiostiy crew picks a winner who will recieve an assortment of goodies from Tim and Mario!!
Also for this challenge Inspiration Emporium will be sponsoring with an awesome 50.00 shopping spree to one lucky random winner!

If you would like to join in on the challenges,  grab a copy of Tim's book and head over to Linda's and get started :)
