Hello blog visitors, Kirsten here.  I have another of the samples I made for the Event Day to show you.
I used a piece of patterned paper from the CWC Time Flies collection & distressed it by spritzing both sides with water, crumpling it up a few times, then drying it a heat tool after I'd smoothed it out slightly.  I used the blade of my scissors to distress the edges, then spritzed with a mix of water & gold mica powder.
I painted the  Wendy Vecchi Art Part watch part with copper acrylic paint & when it was dry applied a brown alcohol ink randomly on top.  Gold alcohol ink was applied to the metal card, which I'd cut with a circle die, then I stamped the butterfly on top with Stazon ink.
The seam binding was coloured with distress stain & dried with the heat tool while it was crumpled up, that leaves lots of creases in it.  A few embellishments & a quote by Indigo Blu, stamped & heat set with clear embossing powder finished the piece.
