A Compendium of Curiosities wk#4

Here is my entry for this week's Compendium Challenge
Technique 4: Faded Layers
I don't think I had actually tried this technique before but I really like the results, My card took on a bit of a spiritual theme which was unintentional but I ran with it and I finished it with a metal piece I upcycled from an old belt.
So what do ya think?
