Sundays Stampers: You Make Me Feel Brand New.

Here's a great challenge from Hels on her weekly Sunday Stampers spot. She is asking us to use something we have not used before, be it hidden in our stash or brand new. I have  just brought some  Distress Paints, and Tim's Picture Wheel Die, as well as having the Artistic Outpost 'You're A Star' set that I haven't used, so here is what I came up with.

Firstly I embossed a tag with Tims cog wheel embossing folder and mixed up Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and  Rusty Hinge Distressed paints and sloshed them on. Lush indeedily as Hels would say! Then I used Walnut Stain ink on the edges. The die cut was inked with Vintage Photo and edged with Walnut stain again. I stuck little photographs of some of my favourite movie stars round the wheel and stamped the clapper board from the Artistic Outpost set in Archival Black. I attached it to the tag with a long brad so that it moves and then added another clapper board on top with sticky fixers. 'Baby you're A Star' from the same set was embossed with a bright orange embossing powder onto black card. I then covered a die cut cog with vintage photo paint and added the stamped film wheels on top. The star is grungeboard, painted gold and buffed with viva gold. The old-fashioned movie camera comes from a set of stamps I've had a while but have lost the manufacturer, sorry! I stained the ribbon with Rusty Hinge Stain and stamped 'Lights, Camera, Action' on it from the same set. Great fun, and I think I've managed to use quite a few 'new' things, thanks Hels! Have a great weekend everyone. x
