My recipe

Mareng s has a fun challenge at Create, a witches brew and here's my recipe:
1. eye of newt --- 2 buttons (Creative Cafe)
2. toe of frog --- 2 swirl chipboard (KCK)
3. wool of bat --- 3 different kinds of ribbons (satin, gros grain, velvet)
4. tongue of dog --- 6 Prima flowers
5. blind worm's sting --- 1 sheer embellishment (Heidi Grace heart)

It was my first time to use a crackle paint, I guess I was too anxious to see the cracks and immediately heat set the swirls, I'm so disappointed when the cracks are hardly visible, yaikks! So I decided to apply diamond glaze instead to make it shiny and I love the epoxy effect!
And oh yeah I had another blooper creating this LO, I was trying out the glimmer mist for the first time and got carried away spraying my paper that it became soggy, yaikks again! Luckily I had another pp a little similar to what I ruined, that is my background pp, is it Hambly? not sure. I also accidentaly sprayed on another photo so this is now a single photo LO. After the bloopers I decided to bail out of using glimmer mist in this project. Maybe I'll try it later.
Now here are my sneak peeks for Scrapstars next challenge, it's gonna be fun! I hope you will find time to join coz I'll be giving away some candies! Details coming soon!
