Over at the PA blog France is back, this time she is distressing a chest of drawers see here, I didn't have any so settled for a chest!! I used baltic blue for the base, gave it a thin coat of crackle paste and then put guacamole over the top, once dried I sanded it down to distress it further. This also gave it a great smooth finish to stamp on. I used the script Ink and the Dog background image stamped in timber brown stazon.
For the frame I used chipboard. Applied grunge paste, dried it, coloured it initially with cut grass Dylusions ink spray, boy was that bright, so then came the magic. Yesterday at Doncaster Dome I picked up a bottle of green olives fresco paint because I actually wanted blood orange but it was sold out, and OMGosh, wow, I just love that colour, it's gorgeous!! Then over the top I applied a generous amount of olive bronze treasure gold. The PA image was stamped in timber brown stazon and slightly coloured with ripe persimmon distress ink.
And a close up of the crackle and sanding and stamping!!!
