All at Sea



Background paper is from T!m's new range, and of course I had to have the green set, ermmm I think it goes by 'retro grunge' . I used the 'on the edge' scallop die for the top and bottom. The cogs were cut from sand paper as suggested by Deb. I covered them in walnut stain and black soot distressed inks, dried them with a heat tool and they bubbled!!!! I put some rock candy stickles on them too and it was like paint stripper, it stripped the colour off on the large one, so I was more careful with the smaller two. Again I heat dried them and they went really limp!!!! The image is from Lisa's Altered Art. The font used for the words is 'OgdredWeary' and it was printed onto safmat. I finished off by threading a piece of ribbon through the holes in the top made by the scallop die.

Excellent effect with the sandpaper - looks as if it's rusted in the salty water.
