Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge - #14 Guilded Kraft Glassine

I came home from a trip just in time to participate in he 14th Challenge from Tim Holtz's book "Compendium of Curiosities 2"  on Linda's blog. This time the technique is the Guilded Kraft Glassine on pg. 39 of the book. This challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique, who'll award a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner.
I followed the directions in the book using these colors of alcohol inks, metallic mixative and distress ink.
 Used a butterfly die to cut out wings from the guilded kraft glassine and embossed with a matching Cuttlebug embossing folder. Then added color to the raised areas with spiced marmalade Distress Ink.
 Here's a close up:
 To make the finished atc, I used a Crackle Paste background I made earlier, a vintage image over the guilded kraft glassine wings and three chitchat stickers with the edges colored with black soot Distress Ink.
