I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
For my project I have distressed paper edges with my Tim Holtz paper distresser, crumpled paper and inked over it and used Distress Crackle paint with a little gilding wax! Oh - and of course used my Distress Inks!!
I paper pieced the Poinsettia having 'distressed' it a little first.
I have distressed the edges of all the edges and then used distress ink on them, you can't see much of the distressing though in the picture.
My papers, stamps, and ribbon are all from Gina K Designs. I used the Tim Holtz distressing tool to distress all the edges of the layered background and center panels. I also stitched the background and center panel, and used some white flat-back pearls and red glitter Gumdrops.
