Favorite Technique

Oh NEET how could you LOL, choosing my favorite technique was soooooo difficult I enjoy so many. JFF is having a month of favorites. Well in the end I decided to use a favorite technique I learnt from my Tim Holtz compendium (a present from the Diamond a couple of years ago when I first became obsessed with Altered Art, little did he know just how obsessed I would become LOL)  I used a tag and painted it black then stamped and embossed in clear, re-painted with sky blue and when tacky rubbed it back the clear creates a resist. Stamped text in white paint, the frame is TH faux rust created with with heat embossing  and DI inks. The vintage image is covered in rock candy crackle and rubbed in sepia. I love heat embossing it is versatile and can be used in to enhance so many different projects. Who would think choosing favorite would prove to be so tricky but huge fun. Hugs All. XX

I am throwing my cap in before I venture inside. I know, I gave a lot of headaches out to the Design Team with my "favourites" and when I came to do them myself I knew just how they felt.
You have done us all proud with this tag - it is absolutely super duperly gorgeous. Love it!
Thanks for sharing this lovliness with us on JFF - Hugs, Neet
