Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #9, where we are to use the Distress Crackle Technique according to Tim's instructions on page 42; and, for the very first Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge, which is "Things with Wings."
Okay, so you just saw this little gal yesterday, but ever since I got her I've had the urge to put wings on her! So I got out Tim's Flights of Fancy clear stamp set and surrounded her with wings - Rock Candy crackled wings, to be exact. (BTW, not lovin' these clear stamps so much.... did all the tricks in the book to stop the inks from pooling, with no luck. Just an aside.... still love the images. Rubber rules!) Anyway, the background is also crackled, as you can tell.... I ran some cardstock through Tim's damask texture fade, then dabbed on some Distress Crackle in Old Paper. I wanted it to look like vintage wallpaper that had been painted over and was starting to crackle.... ya think? That lovely little sentiment is from a very vintage and falling-apart copy of Little Women. Oh, and the clock (also crackled) is from a piece of truly ancient Tim paper from way before you knew he was designing paper, LOL!!!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll have a chance to get crafty with one or both of these fun challenges (and check out the candy, too!). :)
