Mountain ash-BS

Die cut letters-BS
& a BS of a label

Here are some closeups of detail:

I stained all the chipboard with walnut stain, on the buds I used chestnut liquid pearls….

I painted the leaves with TH distress paint,& once that dried I applied a thick coat of crackle. I let the crackle dry then applied lime twist TA & once that dried I rubbed in some rusty chalk..

Shows distressed layers that I had inked the edges with walnut stain. I also did some stencil work,using a Kaiser craft stencil & Viva modeling cream. Once the cream dried I rubbed in some chalk…..

The flowers used are from Prima & Bobunny….

Burlap used in my layers…..

I used micro beads on the heads of the grass….

I can’t wait until I see what you come up with,with this months sketch….Rachelle
