Well this started life as a plain wooden shrine frame which I coloured with Tim Holtz broken china distress stain - ooooohhh these babies are so cool :D the colour is so intense and it works lovely on raw wood like this :D
Now you might be thinking the dabber top is a little bit big to fit around the detailed areas?well your right! so all I did was squeeze some of the stain on to my non-stick craft mat and painted it on with a paint brush :D
When it was completely dry I glued on the pieces of my Alice book I wanted to use with Claudines matte mediumand inked lighlty with the stain.
I added stamped Alice images with black archival ink randomly all over the frame, then highlighted the edges with viva decor inka gold.
Now for a bit of alchemy - my metal charms were all silver so I brushed on more inka gold to change the colour, which I also did with my resin keyhole :D
The Mad hatter image was coloured with promarkers and distress ink pads.
I added a key on a screw in eyelet then added some distress stickles.
All the embellies were stuck on the matte medium - its amazing as a glue as nothing budges!! Ihad my reservations when Ifirst tried it as its so light it doesn't feel like it will do anything but its just so strong!!
The embellies I added to my i-pod cover are still rock solid and it gets plenty of abuse in my bag LOL :D
Are you all ready for the royal wedding??
I'm really looking forward to seeing the event and most of all can't wait to see the dress :D
