I already had something printed out from a previous challenge of Liesbeths' and used this as my base.
I tore the stamped image into pieces and inked the edges to age it. Next I scraped grungepaste thickly onto my page and embedded the images into it.
I distressed my cheesecloth by slashing it and arranged it over my images, adding more Grungepaste.
I also Pressed Grungepaste through a stencil onto the cheesecloth which gave a pleasing finish.
Next I added aged manuscript paper and bits of stained lace.
I pressed Distress ink through a script stencil around the edges and sprayed some of it with Mica Sprays.
I added a sort of bow that was just hanging around and some hardware and then rubbed various colours of Treasure Gold into the surfaces.
Here is a detail of the Grungepaste through a stencil and Highlighted with Treasure Gold.
As usual, knowing when to stop was a problem as the fumes from the TG took hold.
I thoroughly enjoyed this textural experience and will play again in this style! Thanks so much Alison, your work is outstanding!
