The prize for one lucky winner is 50 Emporium Dollars to spend at Inspiration Emporium's on line store! We would love to have you join us! You don't have to make Halloween things, just use something in a way that is different...
I admit, it took me a little while to get the old grey cells thinking along the right lines but I have come up with two different projects to show you.
For my first project I took two plain dominoes from my stash and turned them into a little mini book:
Well, I just had to go with a Halloween theme, it is my favourite time of year after all! The dominoes were coloured with Ranger alcohol inks in Sunset Orange and Rust.
The sides are made from Ranger Foil Tape sheets, embossed with a Texture Fade (Dot Matrix) and coloured with the same Alcohol Inks.
The inside was created using Ranger Speciality Paper coloured with Shabby Shutters and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks and decorated with the fabulous Tim Holtz Halloween Shadows Decorative Strip Die. A few Remnant Rubs were used to finish off.
More Remnant Rubs and an elastic cord with beads from my stash finish off the piece.
My second project uses a technique that I first saw Wendy Vecchi demonstrate way back when and Tim Holtz also uses and loves the technique, it is great fun. It is one of my all time favourites. I took a glass tumbler and turned it into a night light holder (I would not recommend using a real candle if you try this - but a battery operated one works just fine).
To finish off I used Tim's On the Edge Graveyard die, the die cut was covered in black embossing powder and a few pinches of gold embossing powder. The witch is another Tim Holtz die - she is simply balanced on the side and can be removed easily.
I have two more projects 'In Disguise' to share with you this month but in the meantime I hope I have inspired you to think of making something a little different and join in our challenge over at Inspiration Journal, where there is a fabulous prize of $50 to spend at Inspiration Emporium,
waiting for one lucky person!! If you want more inspiration, check out Inspiration Journal throughout the month where you will see some fantastic projects from my DT Sisters.
