Their theme this month is 'Brick Wall' and it grabbed me as soon as I saw it. I wasn't so sure halfway through making my piece when my 'bricks' got nudged onto the floor - you'll see why that might not be a good idea when you look at my piece. Luckily, there was a warning about this on the blog so, like a good girly swot, I labelled each piece on the back so I would be able to put them back together just in case I was stupid enough to muddle them up . . . . . .enough said on that!
To enter the challenge you must follow the instructions given but colours and subject are choice (just as I like it!). You can also improvise if you don't have the correct items.
I've used another of my new Andy Skinner stencils on my tag - I fear you may get bored with these soon!
Here's my tag:
|I used the large tag size because I didn't want to cut my 'bricks' too small.|
|The tag was inked with dylusions sprays and distress ink. Layers of stamping and stencil work were then applied using distress inks.|
|Three of the tag edges were machined. The 'sentiment' was stamped onto a piece of inked stampboard, which is a lovely surface to stamp/paint/create on. Another piece of rusty wire was added and of course, I coiled the ends into springs!|
The instructions over at Technique Time Tuesday are much better than my ramblings, so why not go and have a look then create something yourself? I thoroughly enjoyed making this tag and thanks so much for getting this far in a rather lengthy post!
