Once again, my fave Monday challenges have allowed me to combine a piece of work - and, don't all faint but it's NOT a tag....
Linda's Compendium challenge is set on page 33, and this is one of my favourites and one I use a lot. Simon Says Show us your Distressing/Sanding, so I've done both.
I started with the compendium challenge which I can't tell you how I did it, but I used chipped sapphire and fired brick inks and in the top 'layer' of colour I added some perfect pearl/di reinker mix for a bit of shimmer.
I used part of a large tag (oh, I said it wasn't a tag, didn't I!!) as the base for this. Stamped some Wendy stamps and a Tim text on the card.
For the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge - and I have had this in my head all day at work, trying not to forget my idea!! - I took a frame, gesso'd it, covered it in a thinnish layer of terra in a neutral colour, which I heated quite close to get some bubbles; then added some ferro (I used steel) to partly cover the terra, and some Inka Gold paint (goop as Lin B and Leandra call it) in steel blue, which I applied watered down with a paint brush, again leaving a patchy (distressed!) finish.
