Grungy Monday, SSSS, Everything wendy Vecchi challenge

I

am really doing this card as a three-for this week. I finally got my piece done which will fit the bill for all three challenges this week. Whew! Grungy Monday #16 was to use grungeboard or grunge-paper, SSSS was to show us some embossing, and Everything Wendy was to make a card using at leat one of her stamps and a bird. I used a piece of Tim's glassine paper to emboss it in one of his folders. First I wrinkled it up and smoothed it out. After embossing it, I ran my Walnut distress ink over the raised areas. yummy! Then I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Pearl spray and mounted it to the cardstock. I stamped Wendy's man on grungeboard and embossed it with black and cut it out and then stamped the watchband on grungepaper and used Walnut distress powder on it and then cut that out. I cut it a little narrower so that I could use a metal slide from my stash and pop-dotted it on. I pop-dotted the dude on also and then took some old copper wire and twisted and tied a small nest and added it on top of the watch-band with two snot-dots as I call the bit pop-up glue dots and punch a bird out of shimmery white cardstock and used the same thick glue-dots in the nest to hold him in after I colored him an eye.
