Today I am going to share my latest entry for the Q & L challenge at The Craft Barn. If you not sure what I am talking about click on the link for The Craft Barn and all will be revealed.
For challenge #2 we have the choice of 2 words Silence and Dazzle. Well the first thing that popped into my head was the song Silence is Golden by the Tremeloes, fabulous song at the time and I have been singing it every since lol. I have made an ATC with a tag pocket thingy.....
Firstly apologies for photo's the light here is so poor today. I cut a tag with Tim Holtz large tag die and folded up the end to make a pocket to hold the ATC.
The tag was inked with distress ink wild honey dried marigold I added rusty hinge through several masks one was a retro circle design, another was dots and lastly bars. I stamped and embossed in gold with a stamp from my Tim Holtz stash.
ATC was inked in the same inks and stencils the "eyes" stamp is an really old one and knew I had to use it as it went so well with the words, I embossed the edges with gold embossing which also stuck to the wet ink which I had forgotten to dry so a happy accident as I like the result. The words I typed and printed out on the computer, cut into strips and inked the edges with rusty hinge.
Who remembers this song and is still singing away, would love to know let me know if you drop by.
Thanks for looking again I have really enjoyed making this project just wish the light had been better for the photos the flash wanted to work but that left a shine on the embossing and obliterated the design hey ho!!
