My DT Sister, Rebecca has asked us to use "Light in the Darkness" at Frilly and Funkie. Even though Linda has temporarily closed down her little boutique, there is still a $25 gift certificate that can be used upon her reopening, so come on over and shed some light! For more details and illuminated inspiration from the DT, stop on by Frilly and Funkie!
Tim's, "Ink Palette: Distress" technique for CC2C #31 as instructed by that lovely lady at Studio L3. Linda is just amazing and so sweet to devote her time to us each week and she even holds down a real job! What a gal!
Stampendous and I have to tell you, it is gorgeous! Actually it was pretty time consuming to color in each leaf and Poinsettia bract/petal, but worth it. After I finished with the technique, I antiqued it using Frayed Burlap and Vintage Photo for the distressed paper edges. The Holly/Berries were colored with Bundled Sage and Worn Lipstick stain and then Stickled with Yellow and Xmas Red. The grunge paper cut Lamp Post was colored with Black Distress stain, scrapped up with scissors and then inked over with Frayed Burlap and then clear embossed. I added some highlights using the Bronze Metallic Distress Stain. My glass is Yellow stickles and Glossy Accents layered between two pieces of waxed paper and then cut to size. Did a little Yellow Stickles garland. I also glazed over the poinsettia with a mix of Rock Candy Stickles and water, to just give the red a little extra sheen.
Hope you are having a wonderful week! Thank you so much for stopping by!
