Garden Fairy - Grungy Monday 17


'The Garden Fairy'

Hmmm, I could do with a long, extended visit from the 'Garden Fairy' at present!  Gardening is not my passion and it's a little obvious!  I'm so happy be able to participate in Grungy Monday 17, which this time uses Tim Holtz' technique 'Get Ready to Rock!'  I'm especially happy because it caused me to rip the seal off  and open my jar of Distress Rock Candy Crackle Paint, which had yet to see the light of day.  In fact, I was pleasantly surprised to even find it in my stash!  And now I'm wondering how I ever lived without it?!

I used a lovely Kaisercraft paper for the base of the tag, did a bit of layering with TH Papillon stamps, scattered a few sequins into the mix (affixing them with Stickles Rock Candy), stuck on strips of tissue tape and then covered it all with Rock Candy.  I love the vintage looking German scrap fairy and highlighted sections of the image with Distress Stickles Rock Candy.   The final touch was a gorgous Kaisercraft 'Sparklet!
