Today I have a couple of projects, first up is this rusty tag, I used some mount board and my Tim Holtz Tag die and then used the on the edge cogs die, it was then run through a diamond plate embossing folder and finished with a rust technique I learnt from Andy Skinner.
I then made an ATC with an image from Nice Crane Designs, I was lucky enough to receive a comment last week asking if I would like to choose one of their digi packs, after looking at what they had to offer , and there are loads of great digi packs, I went for the steam punk set. Definitely worth checking them out,there are lots of Alice in wonderland and Wizard of Oz, also some great Oriental images, more toppers or back ground papers but beautiful vintage designs.
Again the ATC was cut from mount board,the balloon was painted with Distress inks and then covered with glue n seal to act as a resist, the bg was then inked up with vintage photo and walnut stain. eyelets were added to the corners and holes punched into the tag so I could tie my ATC to the tag with a leather thong. the steam punk automation is from Paper Artsy and coloured with Distress inks and he has just been tucked behind the ATC. To finish off I added the Journy plate and some Ideology keeping with a travel type theme.
here are the rest of the pics.
It has lots of fold out flaps and little pockets for adding notes or photos etc, mine has been left blank for now but I think I will be making another one this week.I will post more about this in the week after I have had a chance to make one with my own choice of papers etc.
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope to see as many of you as poss over at Anything But A Card there is still one more week to take part.
