Footprints...

Another week of january speeds on by, but with it brings another fabby Compendium of Curiosities challenge HERE with the lovely Linda
Page 50 this time and 'Weathered Wood Grunge'
Not quite sure why he called it that as mine doesn't look weathered or indeed like wood!!!
Still, minor details...
I made this as one of three tags for a swap i'm taking part in.
I took the sentiment as my inspiration, and i created footprints over my grunge, using gold paint dabber and my hand, once it was dry I coated the prints with matt accents.
I was going to just stick the heart to the tag but decided to make it look a little bit more interesting by eyeletting it to the tag and then threading some black cord so it looks like its held on that way.
I finished with a smidge of rock candy stickles just at the edge of the sentiment.
Right i can't stay and chat as i have 2 more tags to make.
thanks for stopping by x

I'm so glad to read that someone else is questioning the name of this technique. I was beginning to think something (like a page) was missing from my CoC book!! Your "footprints" are great, and a very clever way to carry out the theme. Linda S. in NE
