It's a beautiful, unusual Sunday here in our little corner of Iowa -- it's sunny and only 70 degrees, which is pretty cool for a high temperature in July. We've had two mornings in a row with temps only in the 50's and I'm not complaining! It's much better than heat and humidity. Now on to my latest project which I'm entering into two different challenges, one with a "rust" theme and the other has "captured moments" as a theme, hence the photograph.
I started with a #10 tag which I sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink, stenciled with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, and antiqued around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I stamped the three gents (a Tim Holtz stamp) with black Memento Ink. The photograph is of my handsome great-grandfather who is sporting a moustache. I edged the photo and bottom of the tag with Tim Holtz tissue tape as an accent. To carry out the "rust" theme, I cut gears with Tim Holtz dies, and embossed them with Stoney Red and Ultra Thick Copper Embossing Powders (brand unknown). The moustache was also a die cut and embossed with Black Soot Embossing Powder a Tim Holtz product. I really had fun creating this card, which probably took me more out of more comfort zone than anything I've done before. I'm trying to "loosen up" and get more funky and frilly!
