I am so excited – Pez-A-Doodle is sponsoring the Etsy Inspired challenge this week! YAY! i only recently discovered this challenge and have been emailing back n forth with ashley ever since and i just think she is SUCH a sweetie! so I am so happy to have a chance to sponsor a prize for her challenge as I think she does a tremendous thing getting some etsy shops a little exposure! i LOVE to shop on etsy! The prize is a $20 gift certificate to my website and ashley also has a coupon posted so head over there and have a look!
This week’s featured shop is TR Mack and wow i had just tons of ideas for this one – BUT only time to create one so here it is:
the main panel is a little trick i learned from tim holtz’s class at CHA. i cut the flower out on my cricut and then glued it to a piece of cardstock. i ran that through my xyron putting the sticky ON THE FRONT and then covered it with heavy duty tin foil. i used a large paper blending stump to smooth the tin foil down and get the design to show through really well. next i alcohol inked it really well. then i sanded lightly and brushed over the flower with staz on ink.
the background is the double cuttlebug technique i learned over on debbie’s die cuts. i added larger inked circles with various objects on my table like the end of a pen.
i used this week’s SCS sketch challenge for the layout.
and now off to finish prepping for class tonight! can’t wait to see everyone!
be sure to tune in tomorrow when i announce the next studio G challenge!
