Hi you all! It's been another cold, grey day here, with lots of snow. And I have had enough of it! The weather men have promised that the temps will start to climb a bit this week, and that we will see the sun again - I so hope that they are right! And to make matters worse, I had to spend my time doing the book-keeping for a charitable group I am in. I don't know WHY I got this job, as I am really lousy at math and everything to do with it, but today was the day to get it done. I have got it nearly finished, so that's one nightmare less!
The card I have made today is for the 'heavy metal' challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show. I stuck some strips of aluminium tape from the discounter onto a piece of cardboard packaging, embossed it with a texture fade folder, and 'aged' it with Inka gold in pewter and archival black. You can't see the joins in the tape once it has been embossed and treated. Then I cut TH's old jalopy, and wings and a heart from it. I mounted it onto a piece of Miri board in gunmetal grey, and added a red tin heart that I got some time back from Donna , who often sends me nice
odds and sods bits and bobs from Mexico. I matted it with a square of red card before fixing it to a piece of cardboard, peeled (as far as the eye can see) and distressed with Inka gold in pewter again. I found the 4 snap-fasteners for the corners in my button box.
The magazine in the background of some of the photos is from 1913. Miri board is almost impossible to photograph without reflections, so you can see me - luckily very indistinctly - in the background.
I am also linking to the Craft-Room Challenge - something for a man.
I was pleased to see my entry for the 'E' page at the Craft Barn dictionary challenge has been chosen for the 'wall of fame'. I did a page about even numbers. Now I have to decide what to do for 'H'. Making decisions is always a problem!
That's all for today, hope you all have a good start into the new week. Take care and /or have fun and thanks a lot for coming by!
