Bird week: time for a tag.. and a video :)

Isa'sArt is with us today with a video (did I says spoiled yesterday?) to show you a distressing technique that looks truly amazing. And it's easy too, yet very effective. What more can you ask?
So here's your steampunk bird of the day and all the details about it!

For the distressed effect, I used Distress ink and an aquamarker pen

As for the "Distressed wire", it all started with plastic Aida. 

Et voilà

I'm sure you will enjoy this video and technique, I know I did.

  2. Wow - great video!! I'm sure I have some plastic canvas tucked away somewhere....must get it out and play. Thanks for the great idea.

  3. Will check out the video later but the finished product looks amazing. I love the plastic canvas idea.

  4. That's a great technique! I was worried at first when I saw it was in French but it was so easy to follow. Got to see if I can copy that. I often visit Isa's site as she has a translation button on the side.

  5. super de faire une vidéo, c'est absolument magnifique et très technique.J'adore ton tag.BISOUS

  6. Wow! Brilliant technique & a gorgeous tag.

  7. Great video and a wonderful technique - have never thought of using embossing powder on this stuff!

  8. Love the tag and I thoroughly enjoyed the technique video.

  9. I'm happy to see that it's ok for you ! :-) Thank you for you comments and sorry for the french, because my bad english I don't take always the time to translate but I will do for the next ;-)
