Greetings and Welcome,
I am so happy to be posting mid-week rather than late Sunday. Which means possible more crafting. Or maybe 8 straight hours of sleep. Anyway I done and that’s what counts.
This week I took up the challenge at Studio L3 and Linda’s Grungy Monday Challenge # 19. The challenge was once again the use, as inspiration, one of 12 Tags of Christmas from the Guru of Grunge, Tim Holtz. In his tag, Tim has encased a snowman between an embossed piece of plastic packaging material and a #8 tag. Sounds gruesome but looks really cool. It also fits into Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge – Tim Holtz Technique so it’ll go up there as well.
I have been itching to make the cool thing Shelly made a few months back and this is my twist. If you’re thinking it looks unfinished or needs something it’s because I intend to use it as an interactive mini album insert type thingy and photos need to be selected.
Everything is pretty straight forward die cutting and faux enamel embossing. The really cool thing that I was pleased with was the embossed plastic. I cut a circle to use behind one of white cogs. I used the TH embossing folder that embosses on the corners (can’t remember what it’s called) and use only a small bit the larger corner embossing on the edge of the circle, ¼ turn – emboss and repeat. After 4 times through the vagabond, and the edge of the circle was embossed making a frame within the cog. So I easily amused, but that’s me.
Ok so enough blather, tomorrow is a work day and I can’t be sleeping at my desk.
