'Distressed - Aged'
Well that will be another fortnight since our last challenge went live and this fortnight is my theme choice. I opted for 'Distressed - Aged'. I love Tim Holtz and wanted to try and create something using some of his techniques.
Here is my DT entry for this challenge
This is a wooden tag from Crafty-Emblies which I covered in some patches of aluminium tape and scored and marked to give a patchworked sort of effect. I then used alcohol inks to create the distressed/aged look, once dried I rubbed over it with sandpaper to bring back some of the silver colour and leave the scored areas filled with the ink. I added some lace, paper and ribbon flowers, some antique embellishments and some black swirly bling. To finish the tag off I added some seam binding (coloured and crinkled with Vintage Photo distress ink), brown ribbon and fibres.
