Happy

 If I ever need to cheer my hubby up, all we need is afternoon tea at the Chocolate Factory, he's like a kid in a candy store there!!  It always costs a small fortune... but sometimes it's worth it, and seriously, the hot chocolate there is heaven in a mug!!




I have used:
Dusty Attic Cogs 2 DA0002
Dusty Attic Skeleton Clock Faces DA0430
Donna Salazar Antiquities Papers
BoBunny Et Cetera Jounal Sheet
Pink Paislee Mistable Tag
Tim Holtz Film Strip Ribbon
Handmade Halo Pebbles

Techniques:
The chipboard was stained with Tim Holtz inks, dabbed with warm white acrylic paint and then misted.  The misting with water {or glimmermist etc} helps bring the stains up through from underneath, creating a lovely subtle colouring effect.  The cogs were then coated with a thin coat of crackle accents, this helps intensify the colours.

Thanks for visiting, take care and
