"Words are alive"... (thanks for putting me onto the little "cross punch" Michelle!)
"Stone Monuments"... (the ubiquitous texture paste, this time in white, around the picture. If you click on the image to enlarge it you'll see I used a set of Angel wings to stamp and emboss on the background. I used the Antiquities Cement embossing powder so it's very subtle)
Next class is using crackle products...and there are several of them. Golden Crackle Paste, Ranger Crackle Accents, Helmar 2 step crackle, Jo Sonja crackle, Ranger Distress Crackle and probably even more that I haven't used!
