Quixotic Challenge #36 ~ Alter It!!!

This is my second post today if you would love to scroll down to view my Club Anya magnet tutorial, Thanks :)

The challenge this week over at Quixotic Paperie has been chosen by the wonderful Rowena...

Alter It! Alter an item, or create a card using for example altered chipboard etc.
I did try altering the background papers with distress crackle paint but mine's dried up and not cracking well! Loving these papers and I have cut a few of the rabbit images out to place behind the filmstrip ribbon. So I've inked edges, added paint dabber under the left panel and the main altering is the witches hat, cut from grungepaper, painted with pitch black and applied a generous amount of clear crackle rock candy! I've also altered the colour of the string with distress inks and sanded the metal corner a little! Finished with a few random viva decor pearl paint drops!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland; Grunge paper;
Ink: ~ distress clear crackle paint;
Other:Viva decor ~ pearl paints; Tim Holtz: corners; filmstrip ribbon; paint dabber; mini fasteners; 3D foam;


I'm also entering this in for the wonderful Compendium of Curiosities, Week 9! Which is using distress crackle paint, I've used my clear as my other colour has run dry!

I have followed Mercy's fabulous Tuesday sketch #86,
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a fabulous & creative Day,
BiG HuGs Kim :)
