DT Project Featuring Darkroom Door & Tando ....




Good morning everyone ... Gillian here back with my DT project for this month featuring Darkroom Door and Tando goodies. I started out by covering a 7x5 canvas board with cardstock from Tim's Vintage Shabby paper stack adhereing with Claudine Hellmuths Matte Medium. I then used Distress Ink (Walnut Stain) around the edges of the canvas. Using the Tando Mask (Music), I spritzed with Adirondack Colour Wash Spray in Expresso and dried with a heat gun. I then adhered Tissue Tape (Symphony) to a piece of manilla cardstock and used Tim Holtz Paper Distresser to distress the edges, again using Distress Ink (Walnut Stain) for highlighting. I then stamped quotes from Darkroom Door Music Collection in Archival Ink (Coffee) onto the cardstock. I then stamped more images from the collection onto vintage shabby paper, trimming to size and mounting with 3d foam pads. Using various musical chipboard shapes from the Tando Music Note Set which have been inked with Distress Stain (Tumbled Glass) and stamped with Archival Ink (Coffee). The small tag has been distressed with Walnut Stain around the edges.

Don't forget to check out the other DT members projects throughout the month for further inspiration. I would also like to say hello and welcome to our new followers, thanks for stopping by ... TTFN! x
