I Have Wings

This is Suzz's last technique to share over at the PaperArtsy blog.  I opted for the technique of the first atc as it was my favourite, so hop along and check it out here.

My pewter didn't crackle properly, I don't think I shook the bottle enough as it was a bit watery, but once you've put it on there's nothing you can do!!!  So I went over it with a bit of white.  But the baltic blue with the pewter underneath cracked beautifully as you can see from the panels on the left and the butterfly on his head.  I used the Ink and the Dog Wings #2 stamp plate.

Love your ATC. I think the white with blue crackle is beautiful. And that it didn't crackle on the first works well as it looks white washed! Beautiful!

Yes pewter is an odd animal. Settles. I had to stir up with coffee stick the other day for a while to get mine back in line. The Baltic on top looks ace. I think the metallics are better under. I'm thinking they are not thick enough as top coats on crack ITKWIM. But I shall experiment. I LOVE black on gold. Then glossed. Lush. Very Essex. Innit.

Blues/Pewter always a winner for me.I like the different shades of blue achieved and the quote is perfect with the image. Thanks again for supporting and being inspired to play along. x

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
