Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 4 and 5

So I have been doing my challenges but I didn't get last weeks posted before the cut off so I decided to wait and just post 4 and 5 together.   I will start with challenge 5 since this is the newest challenge. 

So here is the full picture and now an up close of the wings

So here's how I created this canvas.
1. I covered my canvas with Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap-Terminology
2. I used by Glue and Seal to apply my tissue wrap and cover the top of the tissue wrap to seal it.
3. I then used Claudine Hellmuth Studio paint (modern red and classic teal) to change the color of my canvas. Followed by Claudine's multi-medium Gloss to seal it and give the canvas some shine.
4. I then used my StazOn (jet black) with my Prima stamp.
5. I used Tim Holtz's A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2 page 48 technique to create my wings on my Charlotte.
6.  The saying is from Wendy Vecchi's Remnants of Art stamp set.  I love Wendy's sayings they are so great!!
7.  I used Tim Holtz's die to cut out the saying. 
8.  I used by black paint to alter my Charlotte.  I then attached her with my Glue and Seal.

Now for my Challenge 4... What is so funny is I did really do this canvas the Friday the challenge was posted and I didn't even realize that challenge 4 and 5 were similar in theme.  Oh WELL..... 

1.  I did not cover my canvas for this challenge.  I left it white.
2.  I used Tim Holtz's A Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2 page 43 technique to create my canvas and to color my soar tag.
3.  I used Tim's Idea-ology bird and colored it with alcohol ink. 
This is a quick description of how I made this canvas.

I have decided that for each of these challenges I am going to attempt to make one of these little canvases so at the end of the challenge I will have one from every week.
