The challenge over at the Frilly and Funkie Blog is April in Paris. I decided to combine this challenge with a crackle background tag swap going on over at Art for the Creative Mind Yahoo Group.
I loved Linda's tag she made for the challenge. I used similar items for my tag. I used the Tim Holtz Bookplate Embossing folder and then inked it with Picket Fence and Peacock Feathers Distress Stain.
I then stamped my Eiffel Tower image into the middle of the oval on the tag. I went over just the oval portion with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. After this was dry I went back over it with Victorian Velvet distress ink, making sure to get it into all of those cracks.
I then added a lace around the oval dyed with Victorian Velvet Distress Stain.
I painted some antique metal embellishments with pink acrylic paint. After it was dry I sanded off some of the paint on the raised areas.
As always thank you for stopping by. Be sure to check out the challenge for more wonderful creations.
