Hello, friends! It's time for anew challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and this time around Jenny is hosting. She calls her challenge theme 'Oh Man!', and this is how she describes it:
"Fathers Day may be a way off yet but there are always other occasions and reasons for making something for the men in our lives. For this challenge create something which you feel has a more masculine look."
As always, the winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team. Please see the blog for details.
The 3D embossed (Tim Holtz Foundry) corroded/eroded metal background was the jumping off point for my snarky greeting card. But you'll have to wait until this coming Saturday to see how I made it when I'll have a step by step as part of our Saturday Showcase feature at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog.
I pulled out my Steampunk Parts Bigz die and some cat food box panels to make some rusty parts. (These come between the layers of canned Fancy Feast in a big box, so untouched by the cat food. Sadly, Roger's still on a diet and has to eat low fat, expensive food that doesn't come in a case, so I'm using up my stash.) I'll be sharing my 'rust' recipe on Saturday, too, although there are some slight changes here. Here, I added a few dribbles of Rust alcohol ink and sprinkled them with Rust Embossing Glaze and allowed it to dry without heating. I did the same thing to the Idea-ology Hardware Heads, too.
The snarky quote is from Snarky Cats stamp set. While I love the cats, I bought this set for the quotes. The layer under the Foundry layer is white card with Typeset Collage paper adhered with Collage Medium Matte. I colored just the edges with Distress Crayons: Black Soot and Vintage Photo and Prima Patina Green Matte Wax. Thank you to Wendy Baysa (Dabble DoDay) for gifting me with the Typeset Collage Paper, among many other crafty goodies!
I tucked in a Type Chip and and ephemera from Ideaology Urban Layers colored to coordinate with Antique Linen and Antiqued Bronze crayon and Matte Wax. A portion of another Urban Layer is stamped with another of the Glitch 1 images and altered with Vintage Photo and Black Soot crayons, Rust and Cracked Pistachio Embossing Glazes and Matte Wax.
I hope you liked my slightly distracted manly card. If you get time, be sure to pop over to The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog this Saturday for our Saturday Showcase feature to see how I made this corroded/eroded metal background and rusty metal as well as a few other things. In the meantime, please drop the blog to see to see what my talented teammates have put together to inspire you for our Oh Man! challenge. Then it's over to you; I can't wait to see what you will create for this challenge! Take care of yourselves. Big hugs!
