I'm following the challenges being set by the lovely Linda
on her blog Studio L3 working from Tim Holtz' new book
A Compendium of Curiosities Volume II.
This week's challenge was to follow the
technique on page 48 of the book.
(Simon Says Stamp will be giving a $25 gift certificate to one lucky,
randomly-selected participant in this week's challenge!)
Here's what I used
The Distress Crackle Paint I used was actually
Clear Rock Candy and not Picket Fence -
I'm not sure how that got into the photo!
The little bottle at the end is a clear nail varnish.
I used Tim Holtz/Alterations Sizzix Bigz die
The crackle paint gave a lovely texture, I didn't think
I'd used a thick enough layer, but was pleased with the result.
I painted over it all with the clear nail varnish to give
it more of a shine.
I stuck the vintage typewriter onto a card
to make a birthday card for my brother in law.
By using the slot along the top of the typewriter
you can make a personalised message emerging from it!
I really love this typewriter die,
and think I'll be using it quite a lot from now on!
Thanks for looking :)
