Shopping Our Stash Challenge 36: Winter Blues



This week at Shopping Our Stash we are in the winter blues...as in using our stash of BLUE!  It doesn't have to be winter related- as long as the project is primarily blue, it works!

I used some stash I unearthed during my recent move!  I colored with copics then covered with Rock Candy Crackle paint and then added soem Distress ink in Gathered Twigs over it.  Stormy Sky distress ink on the paper.  Twine I got on a takeout bakery purchase!  I distressed the image panel with scissors and added more ink here and there.

Details:
Image from Artful Inkables Steampunk Sarah set
Bazzil cardstock base
Kaiser Craft papers
Tim Holtz tissue tape and tag and attacher
Distress inks
Copics
Misc seam binding ribbon, button and twine

Challenges:
Stampin for the Weekend: out with the old (old designer papers and cardstock)
Delightful Challenges- distress/vintage
Digi Doodle Shop Challenge- blue and brown
Sew Many Cards- circles- used my nesties to cut three behind image
Let's Ink it Up- anything goes (no digis)
Craft Your Days Away- distressing
