The rules are simple:
• One must work from the book and not reveal Tim's techniques (If you don't have the book, you can get one from Tim... there 's still time as there are three or four techniques in the book left to do in this series of challenges!)
• You need to link your creation to Linda's blog
• You need to visit the design team's blogs and leave comments on their interpretations.
This week’s challenge is to implement the technique described on Page 54 (Faux Cracked Glass). For this, I took three of Tim’s tiny vials/bottles and three colors of alcohol inks (Botanical, Mermaid and Indigo):
I pulled a Configurations (8 x 6) from my stash and stripped it of all but two of its little interior boxes. I then set about decorating the box. First, a brick wall using Core-dinations Adirondack paper, the “Bricked” embossing folder (656644), “Pumice Stone” Distress Ink to color the raised bricks and “Picket Fence” Distress Marker to color in the mortar:
Next, more India Ink Black and white card stock and a selection of laboratory gear from the stamp set “Laboratorie” (CMS 173): I fussy cut each, colored the test-tube rack with “Walnut Stain” Distress Marker, and glued all the lab apparatus to the back wall so it looked like it was set up on a table behind the “counter”.
Finally, I stamped yet another “Laboratorie” stamp on beige card stock, cut it out, curled the corners and distressed with “Vintage Photo” Distress Ink. Two black brads (Hot off the Press) served as “nails” to hang this chart on the wall. I cut out some “posters” from a sheet of Graphic 45 6x6 paper (“Steampunk Spells”) and pasted them to the front of the “counter”. My shop is now “furnished”:
