Hopefully you don't get an acute respiratory distress syndrom, while watching my contribution for
Simon Says Stamp and Show:  Depth of Distress.
I started my frames very relaxed, but however my distress is some kind of obsession and i couldn't get enough. (:o)

First, i traced my created template on cardboard and cut out with scissors

Sealed both sides with Ranger Glue and Seal

Used gold dabber on one and Americana vivid violet on the other frame

For more action....crackle medium and DecoArt titanium white

The results after painting

Hmm...and because i couldn't get enough....see for yourself...

Some close up's ?
The shabby chic variations

Ok...up to the next one..

The vintage *Tim Holtz* Distress Variation

...and of course the *Andy Skinner Timeworn* Steampunk Variation

I've scanned my template, if you want to make one too

Just for respectability. I have got the idea from my YouTube friend Fiona *Jennings644*
 Thanks for watching (:o)
Let me know, if you make one too.

Candy C hat gesagt…

Very very cool little frames! You did an outstanding job on these...all so different and yet so amazingly cool! I love each of them...but especially the steampunk one as I am partial to steampunk and it is definitely reaching the depths of distress! Love your work! Thanks for sharing your frames with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
