Hello every body, hope you've all enjoyed a good weekend. The weather here in Crewe, Cheshire has been great! for once.
Just a quick post.. feeling a bit tired so will do all the necessary tomorrow:)
Next day..still got a massive headache!! boo hoo :(
The card was made with DP and images from Peerless Designs vintage men's Collection CD. All distressed with a combination of Antique Linen (getting a bit dry that one ) and Tea Dye.
Hobby Art greeting
Dimension 4th used to stamp the age.
Bottle top embellishment
New bottle tops from eBay...apparently used ones wont work
flattened in Cuttle Bug
Small amount of Cosmic Shimmer Mica Pigment.. burnt marigold, a very tiny amount, added to the white plastic insert..
Glossy accents to fill top... not too much or it over spills and looks a mess...guess how I know ;)
add a tiny drop of alcohol ink in this case Sunshine Yellow then add the charm very carefully, leave to dry.
I do believe there are some videos on utube that explain about bottle tops... apparently the white plastic insert can be removed. I've not had a look myself yet. I'm sure there will be lots of techniques available... perhaps I should go have a look :)
and here's a sneak peak from the workshop I attended yesterday at The fabulous Cubby Hole with Sarah Anderson... Steam Punk Journal... made our own journal!.. we did! The batteries in my camera are dead! so more pictures and info tomorrow :)
