The Courage to Imagine

I love the style of Wendy Vecchi and Tim Holtz!  This card combines techniques I've learned from each of them through videos, tutorials, and just looking at their work.

The flower is made from grunge board which I painted black and then covered first in Claudine Hellmuth's Matte Medium and then in Ranger's Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy.  Once it was dry, I cut it with Tim's Tattered Florals die and applied the Alcohol Ink Metallic Mixatives.  I added some Butterscotch Alcohol Ink at the end to give it a more rusted look.  This is a technique kind of like one Wendy did at CHA Winter 2011, you can see her video here.  Pretty cool that it makes the grunge board look like it's actually metal.
