A little birdie told me....

A little birdie told me to have some fun; so I did. I took my compendium of curiosities and began to do some of the techniques I had not got round to trying yest, I have to say that the jury is still out on some things but there are some that have just moved up into my top ten!
Here are a couple of my new favourites.
Rusted Grunge

Shabby chic- jury still out

Rusted enamel- absolute favourite !
I just love this tag. I stamped a script image over it with stazon.
I need to search for the perfect embellishment to finish it off....

Then I played a bit to create this. The background is cork, stamped with T Holtz stamp
The lace doilie came from a bootfair earlier in the year along with the old tape measure.
I used the rusted effect grunge as the background for the cage.
Everything just evolved really as I had no plan when I started......

I like the way opaque ink seems to resist the next colour distress ink and gives a lovely subtle  pattern
(I used that on the Trust label)

And the crackle is still a wonderful effect which I love using.
The bird was done with picket fence white crackle and vintage photo distress ink.
