Waaaay back when Tim Holtz was doing his 12 days of Tags, Tammy Tutterow came up with this technique that I just had to try. You can find her instructions here . So I started with masking the cupid and the heart onto beige cardstock. I used a variety of distress inks: Lipstick, festive berries, Olive, and some Millstone. Once dry, I ran it thru the cuttlebug with a heartsy folder. Then tried the new technique from above.
For the flower I tried using several layers of tissue paper with Tim's Mini Rosette die. It was a little challenging getting it into position as it's not sturdy like cardstock. But it worked out. It's centered on some of Tim's precut grungepaper- wings, and inked with DI Olive
The pink heart lace is from Nestabilities all ontop of some designer paper for the background....already with script and the word 'memories'.
With this card, the paper is loose and frayed at the edges, corners curled.
If you can make it out. you can see how most of the crackle paint is in the de-bossed areas. I love the effect.
