Anything Goes…

This week at Crop Chocolate the challenge, #48, is anything goes.  AND if you can use 100% Crop Chocolate product your entry count twice!!  Here is my second entry, inspired by Kathy’s January project showing a ‘cracked glass’ technique.  You can see a great tutorial here.

Challenge 48aI started with an olive jar, a candle stick I got in the after Christmas clearance and some unfinished wood pieces.  The jar is altered using the cracked glass technique…I love this technique and I love using the Crackle Paint on all kinds of things.  Everything else was glued and spray painted.

I also used Distress Stain-Brushed Pewter and Broken China, Distress Ink-Walnut Stain, BG Kioshi, Glossy Accents, Slice cordless cutter all from Crop Chocolate.  Other items used:  black velvet ribbon, hug snug, Tim Holtz tattered floral die, floral pins, Ranger sealer and a beautiful UmWow Studio resin piece (frame).

I was super happy with how this turned out…it is going to make a perfect Valentines gift !!!
