OK, that turned out sideways even though I rotated it and tried to edit it again but no rotating option there???? I will figure this out and soon I hope! On to the next challenge! As you all know, this is the final episode in the CCC challenge over at StudioL3's blog where linda had us work throught the enite book, Compendium of Curuiosities by Lord Tiom of Holtz. This week is week #35, found on page #67. i combined it with the challenge on Simon says Stamp and Show challenge this week, aka, SSSS, show us some metal. I just tried metals for the first time a week or so ago on my flower and really loved it. last night I ordered several molds from TenSecondsStudio and some more metal sheets. It's really fun. For this one, I just used a silver sheet I got in a starter kit from Walnut Hollow I think. I cut it to size and applied it to white cardstock and die cut it with my old puzzle maker die and then ran it thru my Vagabond in Tim's texture fade. Of course backwards, so my numbers are backwards but it still looks cool and if I hadn't told you, you may not have noticed. LOL I separated each piece and colored with alcohol inks in various mixes and then swiped each of them with black Satyzon to highlight the embossed areas. Piercing the holes on left was a little tricky as I had so many layers so my brads are crooked but that's OK. For my stitching, I used gold thread to match the brads I chose. Background was wrinkle-free distress, using milled lavendar, dusty concord, and chipped sapphire. Added some tisseue tape randomly and stamped some flourushed prior to that and blended dusty concord around the edges. It looks so much better in person that in the picture but metal always does. I am hooked!
