CofC # 4


This wing themed atc was made using the shabby chic method on page 49 of A Compendium of Curiosities. This is the technique that Linda has directed us to this week. Have to admit that this is not a favourite with me and as its not used much its not well done. Base is black Stamp Bug stamps from both Dragonfly Dreams and Butterfly Kisses, three top coats, white, peri blue and finally citrus green. A little tyvak flower in two layers and heated to shape it.

  3. Zoe, it really turned out beautifully! Very dreamy colors, and though the technique isn't your favorite, you definitely did a gorgeous job with it!

    Thanks for playing, even on a challenge you didn't particularly enjoy! I hope next week's proves to be more fun for you.

    Hugs,
    Linda

  13. Zoe, I think you're being too hard on yourself. It looks like you've mastered this technique. I think it is beautiful and of I am partial to dragonflys alive or stamped. Gorgeous Hun!
