Tim + Wendy = STAMPtember Goodness

I've been a bit obsessed with cleaning/purging in my studio, but took time off yesterday for a little play.
The Simon Says Stamp http://www.simonsaysstampblog.blogspot.com/2012/09/tim-holtz-stamptember-feature.html?m=1 has a great video for STAMPtember, featuring Tim demonstrating a ton of cool techniques.
Meanwhile, over at Everything Wendy Vecchi, list mom Lori had a brilliant idea for this week's challenge: use Tim's techniques from the video with Wendy's stamps to create something.
In order to multi task, instead of a tag, I did a 4x4, the size we're doing in a birthday card club I'm in.




All the stamps (except the greeting, which is an old old Stampin' Up stamp) are Wendy's. The words and the smaller butterfly are attached with foam strips to lift them off the page, and those antennae were made from resistors (which I love and have no idea what they were once used for).
The main colors I used, both distress stains and inks (and some markers): rusty hinge, peacock feathers, and vintage photo. Oh! And a bit of the new antiqued bronze metallic stain.
