it's a RECIPE!!

This weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show is just that....a RECIPE!

Torn edges, Distress Inks, Wings and Buttons

and I have to say this week, the Teamies knocked it out of the park!

Torn Edges you say.....well yes, I tore up a dictionary page into strips and adhered them, in a scrunched up fashion, to an ATC canvas with Multi Medium. LOVE LOVE LOVE that stuff!!

When dry, I made splotches of Victorian Velvet, Dusty Concord and Broken China Distress Stain (a liquid form of Distress Ink....right????) I used my heat tool to dry the stain, then I brushed on a layer of Gesso. It's soooo coool how the ink bleeds through creating an amazing background.

Using my Cubist Template, Embossing Ink and a bit of Lettuce Embossing Powder....I created another layer on my canvas.

Buttons.......well you can only see a bit of them, I framed the canvas with them......once again using the AMAZING Multi Medium.

Don't you just love the Butterfly (my wings)??? I used Clearly for Art WhiteOut and some Alcohol Inks and a few other ingredients.......Wendy Vecchi came up with this technique and a little birdie told me she will be sharing how to create this VERY soon!!!

So, pull out the requirement and just have fun with this one!!! Be sure to link up your creation to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog. Cause you just might be chosen to receive........THIS!!!
