I combined the Compendium of Curiosities II, #4 challenge, faded layers, from Linda's, L3 Studio..... with the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group MAC 40 , cracked glass.
Faded layers is a great tech, I used the abc-numbers stencil from Tim, way back item. I hope you can adjust your screen to see what I did. I have this block about making flowers, it's time consuming so I don't make them too often.....but Lisa had one on her blog a while back using a Flower Nestie, and I followed it and was happy with the outcome. Now all I have to do is speed it up a bit, from maybe 4 hours to make 1 flower to something much less! lol
