Moments Magiques...

Hi, have you ever played with grunge board ? I just got some for my B'day and this stuff is so cool....These are the Tim Holtz wings which I inked, applied alcohol inks, then crackle paint; once dried I emphasized the cracks with Picket Fence Stickles and and some liquid pearls...
And after all this treatment, it  stays pliable....Wow ! and you end up with amazing masks !

The background is a canvas which I inked, embossed and sprayed with glimmer mists....gessoed (is that a verb ???lol) some fabric to stamp on : Magical Moments...this is a gift for my hubby....

Then I applied it to this wonderful fabric...
I embossed the chain with the same blue as my stamping, and used some glass beads to anchor it down....

I had such a great time making this, and got VERY dirty and inky; I am linking this to 
 The Fashionable Stamping challenge, lets get messy and ink....

Thanks for peeking, love G.
