June Day 9......

Day 9: Tell us who your favourite crafter is, doesn't have to be anyone
 famous, just sing their praises
OR
Craft something for a male recipient


No way could I choose a favourite crafter, that's just too hard!
But if I had to, it wouldn't be anyone famous, it would be all
my lovely blog friends....they're all fabulous!
So I went for the double today....with some help from Miss Rebecca!
I wanted to try some of that distress crackle paint....I had an idea for a 
photo frame I wanted to try so thought we'd test it out on something else
 first! We made an ATC using some embossed card, inked it in red, stamped
the image in black then heat embossed the centre of the heart with a 
clear embossing powder. The whole thing was then covered with
the distress crackle paint, matted onto black card, some black gems
for the corners......then we realised we'd forgotten to write in the banner
 lol! And the crackle paint is fab.....doesn't show up much in the
photo but it really does crackle, will definitely keep practising!
So we probably won't be giving this to anyone but it was made with
a male in mind and at least we got to practise getting inky......and
oh boy, did Miss Rebecca get inky!!!
See you tomorrow!
