This week I thought I would have a go at something different. Whilst blog hopping I came across studioL3 who have just started a Monday challenge called Grungy Monday (featuring all things Tim Holtz) have a look here. studioL3
You will also need to watch a Tim Holtz video, but come on that's not hard is it. lol
Here is my tag:
I have just brought a set of spellbinders shapabilities called sprightly sprockets. I used it to make the foam stamp (that will be clearer if you watch the video).
I didn't have any of Tim's medium so I used Golden Medium soft gel, it worked fine but I had to smooth it on the stamp with my finger (bit messy ). The base is a 'liberated' beer mat from an un- named pub!
The embellishments are also die cut sprockets, except the clock pieces which were 'claimed' from an old clock.
I usually make floral stuff so I thought why not a sprocket flower, I think it worked quite well. The colours I have used are pine needles, rusty hinge and a little mustard seed (sounds like pot pourri). I coloured the flowers with the same inks.
I enjoyed making this and will definately be doing more grungy stuff in future
