I started with a plain white plastic cover I bought off e-bay for my precious i-pod and gave it a coat of white gesso to prime it
Next I coloured it with beige acrylic paint and left it to dry.
I stamped the Tim Holtz stamp with archival ink and tinted parts of the image with promarkers.
I added some distress inks with a sponge and dried off with my heat gun. I knew they would lift with anything I coated them with as they are water based and don't dry properly on acrylic paint, so I dabbed on Claudines matte medium with a sponge, building up layers as it dried.
Next I used Claudines sticky canvas and used the same transfer technique with patterened paper as I did last week .
I glued this down and sections of vintage lace with the matte medium and left it to dry.
I added extra stamped stitches then grunged up the edges with the black archival ink
The embellies are stuck down with a combo of the matte medium and glossy accents.
When everything was nice and dry and sealed with the matte medium I added distress stickles.
I'm hoping to see the amazing, most wonderful, and uber talented Tim at the weekend and hope to share this project wsith him :D
Why not customise your gadgets? just find a cheap cover on ebay and go wild :D
