Book Study - Rock Candy Distress Stickles Collage

On NGS group, we're doing a study of Tim Holtz's book "A Compendium of Curiosities". This week we're looking at the section on Rock Candy Distress Stickles over a collage. Create a collage on a tag or card. Tim says to use a strong paper adhesive for this step.Stamp images with permanent waterproof ink. Make sure ink is dry before the next step.
If desired, ink the background with Distress ink using an ink blending tool. I used wild honey. Make sure it's dry before continuing.
Apply a thin layer of Rock Candy Distress Stickles over the entire surface, spread with your finger to ensure it's a thin layer. Allow to dry.
Finished background. Hard to photograph to get all the sparkle to show.
