A Compendium of Curiosities challenge number 2

I decided that I really need time to craft, it's just seems to get lost with all the everyday drama's that is my life, so today I reached for my Tim book and read the distress glitter pages to get some inspiration, checked out the challenge on Linda Ledbetter's blog and got to crafting...
I decided to make a folder which will go in my May folio, it's going into the cooler months here in my part of Australia so decided to get Ms Sooky a new hoodie, and yes my pooch is named after Miss Sooky Stackhouse from True Blood.
So had to take a photo of her wearing her new clothes, can you tell she is not impressed with it lol, but the photo was to cute to not document.
Gathered my stash of which included chipboard, Wallflower paper pad, rubon's, distress paint in a couple of colours, glitter of course I stuck to clear as that is the only one I had and used my inks, paints to colour it up.

For the distress challenge I
used my inks, sticky embossing powder and distress glitter for my stamped images
I inked random parts of my diecuts used sticky embossing powder and glitter and then used some gold dabbler paint on it.
I then used distress glitter with glossy accents on my cut out florals
Then the label tag has distress glitter, glossy accents and a couple of colours of distress paints.
