Well it's day two of my half term and I didn't even make it into my craft room yesterday - so many other things to do! Lol
I'm back today with news of our next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week Kim has chosen the theme of
So, here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...
Out with the old metal tape again - I love this stuff and it's so easy to use. I covered a piece of white cardstock with my metal tape and then ran it through my Calibur using a Clarity cogs stencil - to create an embossed effect. I then painted over it with white gesso and wiped most of it off with a clean baby wipe, then added some black archival ink by smearing the inkpad over the top of the raised areas (the plan was to give the metal a grungy look!)
I decided to keep it fairly simple to show off the metal effect, so just added a stamped sentiment which is embossed with black embossing powder and then cut with my dies.
I hope you can join us this time.
Hugz, Jan xx
