CC3C Distress Photo Tinting - and Halloween


Hi everyone, 
I guess I'm really getting in the spirit of October. I hit the craft store today and there were things on sale I couldn't leave on the shelf. Much of it was Tim Holtz's products, yippee! I came home and headed to the basement to craft and found I had a printers tray. I decided to antique it a bit and turn it into a Halloween wall hanging. 

I used Distress Crackle paint, Distress ink and sprays to achieve the aged effect on the tray. I found some papers in a Tim Holtz stack I liked for the background. After antiquing the edges I glued the paper to the tray.

Once I had achieved the distressed look on the tray, I could stamp and start layering in my embellishments. That's where the fun begins. Goblins and ghosts and pumpkins on my, scary stuff. Lol

Well with all the fun things I have in my stash and the things I found at the craft store I think this is now complete. 

Over on Linda Ledbetter's blog,Studio L3, there is the Compendium of Curiosity challenge going on. You can check it out here. The current challenge is using Distress Photo tinting. my example is in the photo above. The instructions are on page 41 of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3.
