4 x 4 Friday - Lace

The challenge this week on 4 x 4 Friday is Lace. For the background I started with white cardstock and stamped a canvas image (Time to Stamp) repeatedly with Distress Fired Brick. Over that is stamped a large lace image (Time to Stamp) with Distress Walnut Stain. A brown line was made 1/8" in from each edge. Next take an atc sized piece of white cardstock and paint part of it with Distress Crackle Paint fired brick, let it dry, sponge on Distress old paper ink over paper and crackle. Stamp lace ribbon (Time to Stamp) with Distress walnut stain on the paper and Stazon timber brown over the paint. Layer this onto a piece of brown cardstock, wrap a ribbon around it and attach to background. Collage Image (Quietfire Design) is also layered onto a piece of brown cardstock and then onto atc sized piece. Add buttons as shown.

My order of crackle paints from Rubber Chicken Stamp Art arrived today and it was fun to use some on this. It worked great on the cardstock but did cause some warping. I'll be playing a lot with these!!
