COC 9 and SSSS 1


Hi everyone, hope you're having a lovely weekend. I'm just scraping in with this tag for Studio L3 Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 9 Distress Crackle and Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge 1 Things with wings. I'm really enjoying working through TH's book thanks to Linda's challenge and it's great to have a new challenge at Simon Says for more TH biased challenges.  Wonderful inspiration and entries on both challenges too.

The tag started off white and I sponged with spun sugar and shabby shutters distress inks and over stamped with TH's new leaf stamps in spun sugar and victorian velvet. The sentiment is from TH's flights of fancy set stamped in grey. I punched the butterflies and used the distress crackle technique from the book. Added a die cut and stamped photo corner, some glitter liner, ribbon and a tear drop crystal to finish off. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Wow, awesome entry! The crackle on the butterflies looks amazing! I had a hard time getting more than fairly fine crackles. More experimentation necessary. This tag is gorgeous! Love the details.
