Its Crafting Time DT Challenge - Distress Inks

Oops, somewhat late...

This is made by covering the front and back of two ATC's with Graphic45 papers.
I then stamped each page using PaperArtsy stamps, all using distress inks (vintage paper and aged mahogany).
I then used water to blend out the inks to give different tones and effects.
Some areas are then covered ink clear embossing ink and then embossed with suet pudding gold lustre.
The fibres and sewing machine came from stash at ITC.
The birds on the left page are embossed in TH aged mahogany distress emboss and a clear embossing powder, then inked over and polished.

The page on the right is simply stamped, then I restamped onto white paper, cut out the face, inked the edges and stuck it on with foam pad to raise it up.

The final additions are, of course, sparkley gems!!!
