Industrial "M"

So excited today I have been invited to join  A Vintage Journey  as Guest Designer for the current challenge Industrial.  It is a great honour to be asked to share my inspiration for this challenge amongst a very talented Design Team, and this technique is one of my favourite Tim techniques and it was great fun to revisit.

I have had this "M" in my stash forever and it has been waiting for me to " do something" with it and this challenge really did seem ideal, so I gathered together foil tape, paints, and embossing folders to cover the letter, Sizzix Dies, Idea-ology bits and pieces and more paint were added together to make the flower embellishments. To see more please visit A Vintage Journey blog for more details on how this transformation took place.

Thank you  for inviting me to  travel along with A Vintage Journey sharing my inspiration for the Industrial Challenge.
