MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

SCD challenge - The letter 'H'

This is my piece for this weeks SCD challenge... the letter H which turned into Imagine House :-)
I used Tim Holtz distress inks on textured card before cutting out my shape... 'tis only about 2" x 3".
I added German Scrap which was altered from gold by covering with black stazon before wiping it off with Kitchen roll.  It magically removes the gold and leaves some black areas for an aged look.  Love this effect.
The 'Imagine' word stamp is by Crafty Individuals and the Lady jigsaw stamp is from Cherry Pie Art stamps.

Of course I had to give my lady some added interest by using my fave glossy accents :D

Thanks for looking.
Chris xx
