Alteration Dies by T!m Holtz - Sizzix



After having a play with my mates dies, I decided I just had to have some, they came yesterday, so last night I was having a play, along with my new Paper Artsy stamps. The fab things about these dies is that you don't have to mess around with the sandwich. I put through thick cork, thick card covered in paper, thin fabric and leather and all I used each time were the 2 cutting plates. Once I'd cut the cork ones I stamped them with some of the new PA Hot Picks stamps.



This stamped background is the new PA clocks 3 set on alcohol inks. The largest cog was cut out of leather but was suede on the other side, a stamped cork cog was set on top and another stamped cork one to the right. Thanks Hilda for the pieces of cork.

Cath it's a piece of glossy card, I would say it's about postcard size (approx 6" x 4") xxxx

I chose the exact same dies, Sam (wouldv'e liked them all!) The cogs look really good cut from sandpaper and then inked over with distress inks. Very grungy.
Love your steampunkish card.

Gone totally green with envy. Love these - but then I love cogs and wheels so it was bound to happen.
Hope you get lots of enjoyment from them and love what you did.
