Hi Everyone, today is the start of a new challenge at That Craft Place called Shabby Chic and I am sharing with you my first DT Post with this wonderful team. I decided to make a wall hanging which measures 3 x 9 Inches.
I started by gluing on some Tissue wrap to my canvas crinkling it in areas and wrapping around the edges. I let this dry trimming off the excess tissue. Next I used my sanding block around the edges for a smooth finish.
Next adding some Crackle paste through my stencil and spreading some onto the sides and corners.
I also added some die cut strips and then started to add Lindys Stampgang Sprays - Tres Chic colour set, spraying layers and drying in between. I love how this sinks into my cracks on the paste.

I stamped my Tim Holtz Sentiment from the Perspectives Set onto a tissue with Black Archival Ink, tearing around the edges. This was then layered onto my canvas.
My die cut Butterflies were heat embossed using Lindys embossing powders also in the Tres Chic range, layering twice for extra dimension and a few pearls added which were shaded with Copics.
You will see on this close up my crackles and how I highlighted areas with Gilding Wax in a Rose Gold shade.
Another look at my finished Canvas.
Hope you have all enjoyed my post. Please stop by the blog to see what my other Teamies have been up to. On my sidebar you will see links to That Craft Place shop. It would also be lovely to have you join our friendly Natter and Chatter group.
