We have launched with single month long challenges and 2 inspiration reveals. Not to mention FOUR prizes, one for the top 3 places each, and one random winner.
September's challenge is IMAGINE:
And my project inspiration is a beautiful vintage inspired tag :)
The tag base is my Nature Walk collection for 7 Dots Studio. I've cut it with the Sizzix #8 die by Tim Holtz. To build up my background I distressed with Ranger's Distress Ink in Walnut Stain, splattered some Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in Steampunk, and stamped in Versafine Smoky Gray a Viva Las VegaStamps! Coffee Ring stamp, a 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk stamp and a 7DS Cold Country stamp.
The top has been finished with a Prima Marketing flower and brad and some May Arts Ribbon. The flower was trimmed in half to 1) make a nice flat edge towards the top and 2) reserve part of the flower for later use. The chipboard thistles on the right side are from UmWowStudio, have been covered in gesso, and then distressed with the same distress ink and lindy's gang magicals as before. The sentiment is from the Word Stickers in the Nature Walk collection, just cut in half :)
And the bottom is where all the layered goodness comes in. First ... the photo is a brand new product from a brand new company >>> The Sparkling Gnome!! My dear dear friend Amy Lassiter is taking the plunge and selling some cool vintage photographs and other digital bits that she has found herself accumulating. (Not to mention some of her own artwork!) So that was the base for my cool Imagine the Impossible motto! If you'd like to stay up to date on all things happening SPARKLING GNOME just visit and like their facebook page :) It's been layered with a mini tag from Nature Walk, more (and the other half of that one!) Prima flowers and Prima brads, May Arts ribbons, some paper clips and a bit o' dimension.
And that's it for my inspiration and information!
