Amongst all the Halloween furore let’s not forget our old faithfuls…
I started by cutting out a stencil using the Damask Thinlits die then using the stencil with grunge paste to get the raised border effect. When it had hardened I rubbed the card lightly with Distress ink using a blending tool and then water-bleached it. When that was dry I gave a light misting of a gold glimmer mist. Lastly, I added some Treasure Gold to make it ‘pop’.
The pocket watch was made from Tim’s M&S Mini pocket watch die stamped with an old clear stamp watch face.
I used one of Tim’s saying stamps too, for the text and a butterfly and flower from my scraps box. The netting is a self-adhesive roll of something I found in a DIY shop (if you know what it’s called please let me know, lol) which is inked with Vintage photo Distress ink.
Just a snip of ordinary, simple, white border lace added to the bottom to finish it off.
Ahhhhh, that grunge paste is a fabulous thing, lol.
More in a few days,
