That Craft Place Challenge - "Men"

Servus and welcome to my crafty corner! 

Today a new challenge starts over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog and as it is Fathers Day in the U.K. the theme is "Men".

I made a wall hanging - using the awesome Ditzie Designs Clearly Background gears stamp to create a background to display the Ditzie Designs Wood Stars on.

The stars were covered with clear rock candy Distress Crackle and painted with Distress paints afterwards. The background was stamped and heat embossed - using Stampendous' Fran-tage "aged aqua" embossing enamel.

 The colours added were various tones of Distress stains and some spritzes of water to create a more grunge look. I love the bulky-ness of the wood embellies! I already used some of Lisa's range with this, this and this project!

 Materials used (and all available with Lisa's That Craft Place Store):

- Distress stains
- Distress paints
- Ditzie Designs Wood Embellishments stars
- Ditzie Designs Clearly Background stamp "gears"
- black jet archival ink
- Distress clear rock candy crackle paint
- black soot Distress ink
