It's Thursday..Lindsay's stamp stuff day



This week I went back to my prim roots! Nothing like the application to my fave craft fair to send me running to my wood room. I had this old beat up frame that was an ugly mahogony color, I painted on a coat of crackle finish then painted it an olive color and sponged on a darker green while it was still wet...frame done. Then I used this swirly crow from lindsays stamp stuff, it from the creepy crow set. I colored the crow with copics, the highlighted the swirls with pearlessence paint (totally cased that idea from Tracey) thanks Tracey. the branch is cut with mu cricut using teh winter woodlands cart. I did the berries with distress stickles. the leaves are prima and I gave them a light coat with the pearlessence paints too. after all was dry I gave it a mist with walnut ink. teh tattered flower on teh frame is made with bazzill cardstock..that's a whole new post to make that, I added a gray prima flower to it & a brad. don't forget to check out Lindsays blog to see what the other fab dt members have been up to and to score a freebie. happy crafting all
:)
