Imagine and Metal


This was very fun to make!!  It was inspired by Hels' post for the Sunday Stamper Challenge here and I also included metal (Tim Holtz Ideology foliage flowers) to meet the Simon Says Stamp and Show Metal challenge here.  I started with a cheap wooden frame.. added antique linen distress crackle paint to about half of the top and also the sides of that part and let it dry... then added light modeling paste to the rest of the top... let it dry until I could still press the thicker areas but it didn't stick to my finger and pressed an open Tim Holtz texture fade embossing folder (Damask) onto the paste.... lifted and pressed another area, etc... let the paste dry completely.  Used Distress Ink victorian velvet on the paste and dried it with a heat tool.  Rubbed espresso Paint Dabber onto the crackle working it into the cracks and then wiping off the extra with a damp cloth... used a sponge to lightly add some on the high spots of the modeling paste and also dabbed it on the open wood areas and wiped off the extra.   The larger flowers are from Tim's die tattered florals and the small leaves are from the regal crest die all cut from grungepaper.  The rest of the flowers and leaves are Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 stamps on grungepaper... actually all the stamps used in this piece are Studio 490 backgrounds and images.  The layered frame and square on the inside are Maya Road Chipboard.
