CC3 Challenge 32- Hello Possibility

I love plugging my way through the Compendium of Curiosities book with Linda Ledbetter and her curiosity crew.  This go around Linda had us try the Frosted Film technique.  I have never tried Frosted Film before.  I have had it sitting in my Tim treasure box for quite some time now.  I have to tell you my first try was a dud, but then I came up with this little beauty.  

I can't tell you the Frosted Film technique(that's part of the challenge), but I can tell you I will definitely be using this technique again.  Look at the dimension on the wings!
The background is made with several shades of green distress ink: Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, and Crushed Olive.  I added Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo on the edges to warm it up.  Then I flicked a bit of water to break the color up.  A few spritzes of Vintage Photo marker added the speckles.  I used the trellis die to cut paper from the Wallflower collection.  The inside bits are from The Robin's Nest.   I love the tiny tattered flower in the corner too.  That is a must own die set.  The crinkle ribbon is dyed using Fossilized Amber and a bit of Tea Dye.  

Here are a couple closeups of her wings.



I love that they are see through.  In case you haven't noticed I have a thing for wings! 
The Funkie Junkie  is the sponsor for the CC3 Challenge this go round.  I am also submitting this to the Frilly and Funkie Say Something Challenge(that's the Funkie Junkie's challenge blog).  

I hope you enjoyed stopping by today!
What have you been crafting?
