PINWORTHY AT A VINTAGE JOURNEY
TOP 3 AT CRAFT ROOM CHALLENGE

 A challenge entry canvas 

AMARE ET AMARI
Featuring my favourite things of the summer DRAGONFLYS, I love summer because of them
Otherwise I don't like summer, I cant stand the heat, wrong hair colour I attract loads of insects!! 
 
 
This is a 10" by 8" canvas board that was made primarily for the texture challenge at Vintage Journey.
The theme was to use as many of tim Holtz techniques as possible
Firstly some white card was coloured using the wrinkle free distress technique using DISTRESS STAINS in WILD HONEY, DUSTY CONCORD,  and BROKEN CHINA.
The edges of the board were painted in acrylic paint
 
I cut out pieces of the coloured card and embossed them with a selection of TEXTURE FADES & ALTERATIONS EMBOSSING FOLDERS, that had been covered with black ink....you may notice I got some of them the wrong way round!
These were then stuck to the board and left to dry
 
To add some more texture I used SHATTERED LAYERING STENCIL  to a couple of areas using grey memento ink,
 
Used some CLEAR TEXTURE PASTE with ROCK CANDY GLITTER to the right side corner.  Added some butterfly's from IDEAOLOGY TISSUE WRAP, die cuts GARDEN GREENS.
Then finished off with my favourite things DRAGONFLYS wich are of course coloured with DISTRESS INKS!!
