Princess wishes...............................

My first wish as a princess would be for blogger to let me put these photos in the right order, so I could show you the whole project and then the detail. Ah well. The inspiration for this piece of nuttery was the Sunday Stamper Challenge -Wish. As it also shows Tim Holtziness technique for faux etching I am also entering it for Simon says stamp and show a Tim technique. I am pleased with how the etching and the mirror made of Timmys bits turned out. I also like the altered paintbrush with pen nib attached. The background is distress stained with bundled sage, chipped sapphire and tumbled glass. The stamp was a freebie from craft stamper and the white paint is Fresco Finish snowflake -[which I stippled over all the metal parts].
The writing could be improved, but then again maybe I was channeling a mad vain princess and that is exacerterly how she rites so there!

Hope you are all having a more peacefull weekend than last and sploshing loads of ink about. xxxxxxxxxx

  1. Hi Alison. Love your faux etching piece that you entered in our challenge this week. It's lovely and a beautifully done job with the technique. Love all your colors you used and how you even "antiqued" the metal with your Fresco paint. Beautiful job! Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy

  2. That faux etching technique is really cool and I love the way you made it a mirror. Love the Snow White theme you have running through the whole piece. Terrific color palette too! Great job with the TH technique challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.

  3. Love this piece - such a clever design and gorgeous colours. xx
