Thanks so much to all of you lovely bloggers who have joined here. I hope many of MY friends will surf over to enjoy your work, and become YOUR new friends too! Some great inspiration on these blogs (and don't forget to look for the translate button if the language is different from your own). So happy to have you joining me here, and I hope you'll like what you see when you have time to pop in for a visit.
Now for the birthday card (so he won't get the Penny Black Flower Garden card). Thought he would prefer this one:
- Sparkle n Sprinkle Woody Set 730 (linking to the digi set, this one is a cling rubber set). Stamped in Memento Peanut Brittle, colored with copics. Glossy Accents on the windows, headlights and some WoS clear and silver in places. Die cut with a stitched oval, some DI shading around the edges while still in the die.
- Cuttlebug embossing folder for the center panel, which was created from the reverse side of a soda can.** Used Alcohol inks in Butterscotch, Honeycomb, Hazelnut & some gold. After this dried overnight, embossed. This EF has always reminded me of the pattern used on pickup truck tool boxes, and although I thought about using a woodgrain folder, this patterning showed up better. The metal is a bit fussy to adhere....this has tape, glue, more glue, and used tiny clothespins to clamp it down the last time more glue was added to the edges. Of course the soda metal wants to curl.
- Cheery Lynn Alison's Ribbons (B335) die set. This is a 2 set die, cuts some very small borders (one of which looks like a blanket stitch - which is why I bought it). Used a green c/s, then colored over that with a copic green, to get closer to the car color.
- Yupo paper experiment with alcohol inks was die cut with an Elizabeth Craft sentiment, and couldn't decide where to place it. So it got put on the top, where it doesn't show all that great. Mr. liked it though (at least he said he _did_!)
For some reason I had a lot of difficulty getting the wood paneling on this old Woody to get to quite the shade I was aiming for, but hey, we got close enough!!
Ya'll have a good evening. Thanks for the visit and will be doing the Random Generator here in a bit. Will have a post tomorrow with a winning name, and that winner will have until the 19th to contact me. I moderate comments, so if you leave your info, I'm the only one who will see it.
Big Hugs, ya'll come back when you can set a spell. (That's Southern for come again when you have time!)
**Edit:The soda can metal can have sharp edges. It's fun to work with, easy to cut off the top & bottom of the can. (Mr. makes a poke hole into the metal with a utility knife, then cuts off the top & bottom. I cut the metal to size using the Tim Holtz scissors, but any scissors should cut the metal. It's very thin. However would not use the good sewing scissors to do this). You can use dies with this metal too. Used a thick emory board to smooth edges, but you could also use a sanding block. I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have, but there's videos available showing how to do this with the alcohol inks.
