Hi peeps. Feeling a tadge sore today. I won't bore you with gruesome pix but I had a BCC (not nice thingy) removed from my eyelid yesterday. The surgeon was marvelous, I'm glad it's gone but I'm sporting a lovely black eye today and I don't look my best. No work until tomorrow so I thought I would cheer myself up in the craftroom with the Vintage Journey challenge where Jenny from Pushing the Right Buttons has challenged us to make something Tim styled using textures. I decided to make a door hanging for the Craftroom, and as Hubby always asks if I'm off to 'play' that's the theme going on!
I painted the door hanging first with DS and then cut some manilla card to size. The layers are thus:
* I stamped randomly with some Tim stamps but they are covered over now and added some pieces of tissue tape.
* I inked and stencilled with a harlequin background stamp and stencil in DI's
then I poured clear embossing powder over some of the images.
* Next I layed the Clock stencil over the top and used Cosmic clear embossing paste over the top and before it was dry I sprinkled DG over the top. When I had brushed off some of the DG the background peeped through.
*Then I found a Time stamp which fitted over one of the clock shapes perfectly.
* Next I used an old clock face, a metal clog that I distressed with DP and a Shrink Plastic clog that got the same treatment and hot glue gunned them into place.
* The 'Play' was die cut from a decorative strip die and placed over a piece of hesssian.
*The 'spend some time with me' coin I coloured with alcohol ink.
* The little blackboard was a freebie from a magazine so I added a chalk effect 'Barb's' on top!
* Oh, and I mustn't forget the numbered rub-ons.
Quite a few Tim techniques here, but I guess the main one that is relevant to the challenge is to use embossing past through the stencil. See Tim's how to here.
Off now to 'play '- oh life is so hard sometimes!!!
