When something just isn't doing it for you anymore. Alter it!!!!
My cellphone case had seen better days. It was a steal of a deal on Amazon for $3 including shipping and had pretty red butterflies on it. I used it for months until the image started peeling off. While on Pinterest I saw someone take G45 tissue tape and cover their IPhone. I decided that was a great idea, and had to do that with my old case.
With the case off my phone I added the tissue tape all over the plastic to give a base and something to add color to. I then inked over the entire case with two of my favorite ink color sprays and then Broken China Distress Ink from Ranger. After drying with my heat gun I added Gesso and then inked over the white dots (I love dots). I added Stickles randomly and then added fussy cut images from one of my favorite paper lines Steampunk Debutante. I then sealed it all in with Matte Seal by Inksentials.
It isn't smooth by any means but that is one thing I actually love about it. The tissue tape and matte seal give great texture and grip. My phone will not get dropped as much and if it does I know it will be cushioned in style.
Thanks for taking a look at my latest project. I will try to do a Youtube tutorial on this process this weekend so stay tuned.
