Compendium of Curiosities challenge over at Linda's Studio L3 blog kind of had me stumped for a bit. Our technique is Tim Holtz' Tissue Wrap Collage from page 38 of his wonderful book. I've never done this one, but when I saw that we covered a die cut shape with Tissue Wrap, my first thought was, 'gears!' That's all it took for this card to fall into place.
You know how you start a project with no clue how it will go, and then it all just starts coming together? That's how this card was! I think it's one of my favorite things ever. I love these guys from Artistic Outpost's Dieselpunk collection - they are perfect for a masculine card. I stamped the image on manila cardstock and then colored them with my Distress Markers.
Technique Junkie Newsletter. I added Idea-ology Washers and Long Fasteners to hold the easel card in place.
Yet again, Linda's challenge has taught me all kinds of new stuff! Make sure you check out my buddy Linda's The Funkie Junkie Boutique - she is a fantastic artist and also this week's sponsor!
