Blimey I've had a reet palavar trying to upload these pictures! So they are a bit mixed up.....
OK - I had a look at Tim Holtz and he is doing 12 tags of 13 and some lovely techniques, his stuff is just great and it inspired me to have a "bash". Go along and have a look at Tims blog.
I loved the phrase "use it well" - by that I am referring to time, because it just flies by - when you get older it goes faster dontchathink! Mind you - I am getting younger - yes the scouse brow has been done!! Yeah for the scouse brow - took years off me and I now look permanently surprised!!!!
"Do I look different?"....the Banana looking very worried as he knows for his own health and safety he HAS to give the correct answer. Panic sets in........."um - your hair looks nice"....NO....."um....you've lost weight".....NO.....(starts fidgeting as he knows times is running out)..
"um.....um.....um" (me wiggling me eyebrows)..........."oh bloody hell yeah - you've had some new glasses!". (I give up cos I've had these for 2 years!)
First of all I cut out a tag shape from card and then ran it through the Big Shot with the clock embossing folder. Then it was inked using mainly autumn colours.
The clock hands have been inked and attached using a brad - they are from the large clock die.
The microscope slide and the square embellishment were both done on a Meltpot training course with Annaliese Bates of Creative Journey Workshops.
Isnt that tap head fantastic - this is taken from a Wendy Vecchi stamp set, and I have covered it in the crackle accents. The Halloween stamp set was used to stamp the verbiage on the ribbon which you can just see on the first picture.
Here is more or less everything I used - you can see the chit chat and the salvage sticker book on the right hand side - go out and buy them cos you WILL use them!
Now the Hatters are doing a Mad Hatters Invite as their challenge - so I fancy doing that now. Artful times have just put their new challenge up as well - Embossing! Oooo lovely! Pop along to both the sites and take part cos I know I am - click on the links on the right hand side of my blog.
