 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

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
