My papercraft and card making projects

Wednesday, 20 July 2011


While reading other blogs recently I saw people using Tim's technique for a 'rusty' background using clear embossing powder.
I needed a card to send to a friend [in London] and thought i would use this technique for the background in this make using my new Artistic Outpost stamp set!  I dont often buy stamps that are not Holtz, but this set looks like it will be very useful; especially with the Olympics just around the corner!! lol!
I hung the mini tag [cut with Alterations tiny tags die] on a hitch fastener, so it could be removed and kept in a wallet or something, with a message on the back.
The crown i embossed in antique gold and sprinkled some cosmic shimmer gold glitter in it when still hot - i do like cosmic shimmer stuff - especially the dark bronze powder which is one of the best colours i have seen.
I have started to use corrugated card quite a bit too recently - i love dimension and texture.
