Compendium of Curiosities Distress Glitter Challenge

It's on to challenge number two in Linda Ledbetter's CC3 Challenge.  This time it's Distress Glitter.  This time the prize is provided by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  The prizes for these challenges are pretty dang amazing.  You don't have to do each challenge to win either.  You still have time to join in the fun.
I started with the wings.  I knew I wanted to use the wings.  I fussy cut the found relative and added them to a cabinet card.  Since the wings are thick I used three layers of foam tape to raise up the girl.

I used a canvas page to mount the cabinet card.  I detailed the background using various Distress Inks and Stains.  I smooshed them on my craft sheet and spritzed everything with water.  I added some stencil details and used a large Stampers Anonymous background stamp to add an extra layer.  
You can see the background and the Distress Glitter wings here.  
I made some flowers using my Tattered Florals die cut and Distress Stains.  A tiny bundle of forget me nots are tucked in there too.  
A little row of pompoms finishes the bottom of the cabinet card.  I love that the card is from Blessing's photography studio and she is an angel.  
I hope everybody likes her over at the challenge.  

What have you been crafting?
Jess
