The month is whizzing by and I am here again joining the brilliant Design Team at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge for our new theme 'Transport it'
Of course there were times when they all wanted to get onto the same one but it was always sorted easily!
I wanted to make them something to give to them on Fathers Day (Yesterday at our family gathering)to remind them of those days! I wrote a message on the back of each one which made them smile!
I started with some Tim Holtz Idea-ology 12x12 Lost and Found paper
in different colours, which I stuck onto some rescued packaging card.
I added a variety of stencils mainly by AALL and create (stencils 17,12) and a Dylusions stencil - old school alpaha
I used AALL and create stamp 10 using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink
I used my trusty Crop-a-Dile to make holes in the tops for some twine to hang them
I painted some little boxes that I have had in my stash for a while using Paper Artsy Fresco paintsI left them to dry while we had lunch....
...and then scraped on some Paper Artsy crackle glaze After that we went to the cinema to see Jurassic World which had quite spectacular sequences but an absolutely preposterous storyline(imho).
When we got home I painted over all of the boxes with a pale blue paint - you can see how quickly this crackle forms as the first one was already crackling really well before I had painted them all!
I used a lot of different Paper Artsy Fresco paints to get a rusty effect and did the same onto one of the elements from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Mixed Media thinlets die
I painted around the edges of some torn corrugated card with Paper Artsy White Fire Fresco paint
I decided to stamp the Bicycle on some book paper - as you can see it does depend on which paper you use - I wanted to use my Tales of King Arthur book but I got a better image on the smoother nutrition text book I used to use in college.
I tore around the edges and stuck it onto the corrugated card.
At this point I used Espresso Distress ink to edge the coloured boards and the corrugated card and a lighter colour Brushed Corduroy to edge the boxes.
It was then just case of assembling and adding various Idea-ology bits and pieces.Tim Holtz Idea-ology- paper clips hinge clips Small Talk words
