My "Mojo" made a brief appearance today! I was quite happy! LOL I did a Paint Marbling Tag for CC3 Challenge #1 (see it HERE) and was not entirely thrilled with it so I thought I would redeem myself with another attempt. I love the look of aged copper so I thought I'd try that color scheme this time. We can't post the Tutorial – (you'll find that in Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiousities III) – But, I took pictures of each step for those of you who'd like to see them. Btw…Thank you so much for visiting my blog and, to those of you who routinely leave me comments, you have no idea how much I appreciate it! You truly warm my heart! As I'm creating, I am thinking of you and hoping you will be inspired. 🙂
The Key was stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed with Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder and the background stamp was inked in just a few spots and stamped in Versamark and embossed in the Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder to add a little more texture. The Gears were die cut and inked with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and embossed with Vintage Photo Embossing Powder as well,.
The Idea-ology embellishments were inked with Distress Paints to age them.
The Sentiment was stamped with Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip Ink and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool.The top of the Tag is from the Pediment die cut and was colored using the Paint Marbling Technique to match the Tag.
