#CC3C - Distress Photo Tinting

So here we are at Challenge 12, check out Linda Ledbetter's blog for all the details. The Funkie Junkie Boutique is back to sponsor this challenge with a $25 shopping spree for one lucky CC3Cer!

The technique for this challenge is Distress Photo Tinting, page 41 in Tim's latest book. I used one of the Found Relatives photos for the technique, minus the gentleman's head, hehehe. Next I stamped the skull from the Mini Halloween 3 set on distress watercolor cardstock and acetate. I then colored the watercolor image with distress ink. Once it was dry I cut out the images and adhered the acetate to the watercolor piece. I framed this spooky fella in a Cabinet Card that was painted with distress paint and misted with distress spray stain. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi Deb. This is spooktacular! I love how you have superimposed the skull on top of the man's suit. Scary stuff!!! But FUN! The webby background is very cool, too. I love the Alpha Tiles "BEWARE" and the skull and crossbones adornments, too. Perfect embellishments! Thanks for sharing your art with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
