'Imagine'.... Winners Guest Design Spot at The Craft Stamper

Hi Everyone and Welcome

Hope you are all doing good and have had a great week.
Today I would like to share with you the project I have made for my 'Winners Guest Designer spot' on the Craft Stamper Challenge blog. My work features alongside the Craft Stamper design teams as inspiration for this months TIMI challenge 'Anything goes ' and can be seen here .
I am so delighted and very grateful to be given this wonderful opportunity - Thank you Trish and everyone at Craft Stamper .

So here's my Guest design spot Project

Tim Holtz Phrenology head stamp was stamped in Black archival onto a piece of a very lightly wrinkle free distressed card.

After shading the head with distress inks Tim Holtz crazing medium was applied. Once dry, distress crayons were blended over the medium to emphasise the crazing.

- I love the delicate crackled texture - like glass /porcelain that has shattered .

The background panel was created using Tim Holtz Wrinkle Free distress technique and distress inks, with Stamps and Stencils adding extra detail. The rays were created using Deco art crackle paste through Tim Holtz 'Rays' layering stencil and Black Soot distress paint drybrushed over the crackle medium once dry. Silver gilding wax highlighted the 
The completed background panel was mounted onto cardstock and adhered to a wood panel that had been crackled with Deco Art crackle paste with hex nuts used as faux fasteners .

The eyes were watercoloured using distress inks and then covered with glossy accent drops,

A few paint splatters made an appearance too

and the finishing touches came in the way of twisted wire, numbers ( 2017)

and the word 'Imagine' held in place with an ideology memo pin.

There's still plenty of time to join in this months Craft stamper TIMI Challenge . All the details you need can be found here .Who knows you too could be chosen as this months winner!
