A Little Distressed Tea Cup

I've discovered distress paint!  I find myself slathering it on EVERYTHING!  If the Saints hold still long enough...  JUST KIDDING!!!! 

So when I decided to color this tea cup image I HAD to put Ranger's Distress Paint in Hard Rock Candy all over it!  I love how it crackles and makes the cup look like old china!  To do this, I stamped my image first, colored it with Copics and slathered it with paint.  You need a THICK coat for it to crackle properly.  AFTER curing, I cut it with Spellbinders' Nested Tea Cup die.  Super easy!  For this project, I used a real Wilton doily along with DP by Teresa Collins.  Whatcha think???

A blossom from my stash and some paper punched leaves finish it off! Thanks for looking! Until next time...
