Use a stamped image at PanPastel UK

Another week flown by and a new challenge announced over at PanPastel UK
What stamps are you using this week? I have used Artistic Outpost stamps for my focal image and sentiment.

This is a large size 10 tag blended with PPs. I scraped some onto my craft mat and used them for the wrinkle free distress technique, stamping over with archival ink and sealing with fixative spray.

The mill was stamped onto card also blended with PPs and  'watercoloured' using PPs mixed with water, highlighting with black and white pens, When it was dry I used a palette knife to scrape rock candy crackle paint over it, mounting onto Tim Holtz kraft resist paper blended with DI.

Before I crackled the main image I scanned it and printed it cutting small portions to fill the picture wheel and covered these with glossy accents. Using a TH stamp and picket fence DS I stamped over the wheel and blended walnut stain DI round the edges.

The small tags were blended with DIs and the quote added then stapled together.

Brenda, this has to be one of the best distressed tags I have seen for a long time! Your background is fabulous, the mill image is just perfection - so rich looking and love how you used the picture wheel - I have been so lacking in inspiration for using it - so thank you for inspiring me! Hugs, Anne x

What a glorious make, Brenda... I've been getting behind on visiting, but so glad I caught this! LOVE the tinting of the image (one of my favourites), and the layering up of the elements is beautifully done - especially love those two little tags! Oh and the images in the pinwheel too, of course... Altogether glorious!
