Make a scene


The challenge at Saturday Spotlight is to make a scene. It was very tempting to do a another fairy scene but thought as I only did one last week I should really try for something different. I used Vintage Photo Distress Inks to colour my cardstock and stamped the 4 images from the Create a Scene stamps by Sheena Douglas, in the same colour. I coated the scene with four layers of thick utee to get a really nice glazed effect, had a bit of a disaster then cause as it hardened the cardstock bent so I had to straighten it out and the glaze cracked - I finally managed to anchor it on about five sheets of card and reheated to get rid of the cracks, card is a tad heavy now so I dont reckon it will be going through the post. lol.

The challenge over at Charisma Cards is distressing so I am going to enter that one to.
