CCC #9 - Distress Crackle
The weeks are just flying by so quickly!!! These challenges will be over before we know it :-(( This week we are on page 42, Distress Crackle. As always all the particulars can be found on Linda's Blog, Studio L3. I first colored my tag with milled lavender and tumbled glass and then used Tim Holtz's retro circles embossing folder on it... added broken china and a little bit of brushed pewter Crackle paints. Once those were dry I went over the whole tag with brushed corduroy and removed the extra off the crackle paint with a damp cloth. Dots (Tim Holtz stamp) were stamped with coffee Archival. The image is from Tim's Lost and Found Paper stack, cut it out, added Rock Candy crackle over the top, let it dry and added it to the ornate frame... I wish I had avoided the face or had used my finger to make it very thin over the face... next time. The grungepaper flourish and flowers (Tim Holtz dies) were colored with tumbled glass or wild honey... the flourish was then embossed with the dot matrix and the flowers with retro circles... brushed corduroy added lightly over the flourish and on the edges of the flowers. I also used my finger to add just a touch of silver paint dabber on the flourish. Added some coffee ink to the string. Ideology mini fasteners at the top corners and jump rings and a token hanging at the bottom. The brads used in the flowers are from Michael's recollections line.
