Linda and her Curiosity Crew have dipped into Tim's Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3 and pulled out a Distress Glitter Challenge. The crew have maxed out on Distress Glitter and come up with some amazing examples. I've been bit slow on the uptake with Distress Glitter and so far I only have two colours, Pumice Stone and Clear Rock Candy. Pumice Stone is a wonderful vintage silvery grey colour and Clear Rock Candy has the effect of dusting with sugar. I've used my glitters to create this vintage style Christmas bauble. It's actually one of those clear plastic ones that the makers suggest you fill with a family portrait but it's actually ideal for crafting. After following Tim's instructions for applying Distress Glitter, which you can find on pages 55 and 56 of CC3, I glittered the inside base with Pumice Stone DG, and used Clear Rock Candy on the Tattered Pinecones and foliage. I adhered a few vintage pearls and a Santa cut from Tim's Seasonal Collage Papers. To finish off, I used something called 'Instant Rust' a two part rust paint on the removable top and added a Distress Inked ribbon. Here's a view of the inside..
Linda over on her Studio L3 blog, grab your copy of Tim's CC Volume 3, click on this link to Linda's blog and go for it ! It's the turn of The Funkie Junkie Boutique to sponsor this fortnight's challenge with a $25 gift certificate. There are also some lovely goodies donated by Tim and Mario for one lucky winner chosen by the crew. Now all I have to do is get hold of some more of these baubles, I reckon if I make one a week, I'll have enough to decorate my Christmas tree in December after all there are only 219 days to go ! x
