A few days ago I bought the wood effect embossing folder and just had to use it. The method for the technique is in Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities book.
I cut the swirly heart and 'rusted' it with Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder. The bird is inked with rusty hinge and tumbled glass distress ink. For a bit of glam, I painted the blue bits with Turquoise perfect pearls powder.
The bead is attached with gold wire and is curled underneath.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for looking
