If you've been reading my bog I have been using Wendy's crackle paste a bit and used some of these backers to emboss(folder, not heat) and then crackle. It comes out great. The finish is really grungy and old.
I decided to try using the backers a different way. I stamped and embossed(heat) my image on the backer. Once the image was cool I used alcohol ink to color the dress. I just used a bit so the background would still show through a bit. Sorry about the glare here.
I colored a flower and some twine to match the dress.
The tag was done using various stenciling techniques with paint and distress inks. A bit of tissue wrap added another layer of interest.
I stamped my sentiment using black archival ink.
I used some seam binding my sweet friend Jamie from Beantown Baby Crafts sent me. Check out her stuff on Etsy and Facebook. I used some Gathered Twigs distress stain to dirty it up a bit.
So much better with natural lighting. Isn't it gorgeous?!
I'm off to make some more. What have you done with these backers?
