Boys And Their Toys

tisdag 16 april 2013

Hi there!
It´s time for a new jubilee challenge over at Ett Trykk.
The first challenge this week is about foam stamps and I was stunned!
I have no foam stamps, and at first I could not think of anything to make one of either. (sigh)


Then I realized that makeup sponges perhaps would do to stamp with.
So I started stamping with a couple of blue shades of Distress Inks on cardstock.


Then I splashed on some water that I mixed with a bit Inca Gold Platinum so it got a lovely silvery finish.
I used a small swirl stamp, and painted round dots around the edge of the card.


For the sentiment and the wings I used Autumn Leaves stamps from the Love With a Flourish set.
It's always fun to find new uses for old or leftover things, and this time I thought that these LEGO pieces could fit the "Boys and their toys" theme of my card


The wings was cut out and placed behind the car after I cut out holes in the paper with a sharp knife.


I sprayed a piece of resist canvas with a few Dylusions sprayes and adhered it together with a button and some twine.


Other stuff that I used: Washi Tape, Metal corner, Rhinestones, Ribbon, Pearls and a piece of braided Leater strap.
I think that´s all from me today.
Have a great week!
Hugs, Birgit
