So covered a tag in metal tape, cutting out small shapes as per instructions, he then uses a pen to do some faux rivets, did that, and then used a large ball tool, then added the alcohol inks, didn't have black, so went with espresso! I did have some steel wool, so did the burnishing, then I did some stamping using TH stamps and Indigo Blu, finished off with a metal wotsit round the hole, brought out the Big Bite, some die cuts, and a few die cut letters which were re-inked, finished off with the sentiment, stamped on back of TH tickets. Oh there is a strip of text from a book, stapled using normal stapler. Headlights were added to die cut using embossing pen and silver embossing powder. At least I achieved something today!
Yesterday was a disaster, just did not like what I did with the frame so took it all apart. My new paints arrived and they are yummy. Took time out to watch a few of Sheena's youtube videos, just to get a few more hints and tips. At the supermarket I found some rock salt going cheap, so will be experimenting with that at some point, it is the chunky stuff so should give some good effects.
Had to throw away my perfect medium, which has been stored the same way as my versamark stamp pads, the perfect medium, by a very well known brand, had rotted, well the sponge bit had! Was going to see if it worked any better on the particular type of enamels I have.
Well no crafting for me tomorrow, sister is skyping mum, so that is my craft space out of action. No worries, maybe a day off would do me good? Off to craft shop tomorrow for some alcohol inks, I have finally run out of green!
