We have a new sponsor this month, the wonderful Tando company who produce so many amazing chipboard items just begging to be altered. They also have a range of other items including a range of quality stencils which can be used for endless styles of work. Never used Tando products before? Click on the image below and have a good look around their website - I dare you not to spend money once there!

|A die cut flourish is coloured with distress ink and finished with gold EP as before.|
|Close up view to show detail on fimo heart.|
|A hitch fastener was covered with DecoArt One Step crackle. When dry some acrylic paint was applied to highlight the cracks. Sadly, I can see little fibres from a baby wipe very visible in this image!!|
|The inside of the box is lined with card which has been stamped with distress ink, embossed with clear EP then inked with a lighter distress ink shade. Some areas of the stamped image had the colour removed/lightened with a waterbrush.|
|Close up to show the ink removal on certain areas of the stamping.|
I do hope you enjoyed looking at this make. Not so much paint and crackle this time but still fun to make! I do hope you go over to Our Creative Corner and see what the other members of the DT have come up with - you're certainly in for a treat!
It's your turn then to come up with a mainly orange creation and link up at Our Creative Corner. There's a wonderful prize available from Tando if your name comes up in the randomly generated draw or you could be the challenge winner and feature on our blog next month - now there's a chance to showcase your amazing work! You may even be one of our top three talents - you have to enter to have a chance at any of these though.
Thanks so much for visiting. Enjoy your Sunday.
