Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 21 & Simon Says Show and Stamp

This weeks technique over at Linda's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge was Perfect Distress, which Tim actually demonstrated in one of his online video clips. The Simon Says Show and Stamp challenge was "your Favourite Tim Holtz Stamp", which I interpreted to use only one stamp, plus the sentiment. The stamp is from Stampers Anonymous Winter Wonder, and I selectively inked the snow flake stamp on it.
The background is Cool Peri Acrylic Dabber, Broken China, Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood Distress Inks. The highlight flakes are Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and Perfect Pearl Perfect Pearls. Sentiment in Jet Black Archival Ink.
This shows the pearlescent effect. This effect is hard to photograph just right since it varies in the light.
Love this close up. Check it out in full size.
