Buoyed by my finished Shabby Wench, I dug out a second mannequin last weekend. I wanted to try stamping onto tissue paper for this one rather than book page - it turned out to be a much better finish as the tissue is much more mold-able. When the tissue was dry, I inked it with Victorian Velvet DI and then painted Rock Candy Crackle all over. Once dried, I painted on diluted Black Soot to highlight the cracks. During the drying time, I made my own patterned paper and die cut it to make a ton of paper flowers; whilst the flowers turned out really pretty, much of the detail of the paper has been lost and I might as well have just inked the paper for such small die cuts.
