CCC#16 - Wrinkle Free Distress

Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #16 is 'Wrinkle Free Distress.'  Another fun technique from The Mighty Tim's amazing book; the lovely Linda Ledbetter has been leading us through it, week by week on her blog, Studio L3.  This challenge will be running for an extra week, so there is lots of time to join in.

I love the backgrounds you end up with using this technique, they are quite random.  I used Rusty Hinge, Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick distress inks for mine.  Then I went to town stamping some TH stamps in the same colours to complete the background.  The birds are Shabby Green Door, the feathers Clear Art Stamps and the birdcage is a new score from the $1.50 bin at Michaels.

Have an amazing day!  Go ahead, open the cage door and fly free...cheers!
