Crafty Cardmakers #141 and Blog Candy Winner

Hello Everyone!


Well, it's time for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More! This time around our lovely hostess Vania has chosen the theme FOR A MAN OR BOY, so she would like to see masculine projects for the dude in your life.

Stay tuned for the announcement of my blog candy winner, but first here is my masculine make. I just realized that for my last three posts I have subjected you to the exact same three colours - pink, green and yellow (oops!), so this should be a nice change!! 




Underneath the clock die is a fishtail banner that I cut from a test page for a new Andy Skinner technique he calls Mega Crackle. A big thank you goes out to TRACY EVANS of My Craft Addicts who introduced me to the technique, she is always inspiring me with her amazing projects, do give her a visit.

As usual, I put my own spin on the technique by layering DecoArt Weathered Wood Medium and DecoArt Crackle Glaze on top of a layer of Americana Ebony Black paint. Then I rubbed a little Crafter's Acrylic Tan into the cracks to get this amazing super cracked look you see here below on the Tim Holtz tag.



The stamps I used in the background are from these sets: Tim Holtz French Memories, Tim Holtz Bird Feather, Tim Holtz Journey, and Kaisercraft Dots. The washi tape is handmade by stamping and inking onto medical gauze. I used a Prima Triangle Stamp with Ranger Archival ink Jet Black and some distress ink Gathered Twigs to colour it.




The clock die is Tim Holtz, I used my Distressed Metal technique to add a nice texture on the clock hands. The center clock is a digital print out. The sentiment is from the Small Talk sticker book. The tags are cut from Tim Holtz and the big one is stamped with a Graphic 45 Harlequin stamp using Archival ink Coffee. The hot air balloon is from a Hampton Arts stamp set...name unknown.



UPDATE: 
My card won awards from the following wonderful challenges:

  55. So I am here again, after morning work and chores, so I can have a real close look at this fabulous masculine tag! Also, are you SURE Scully read that name right? Sonia looks an awful lot like Sara! Tee Hee!

    Now about this tag...Pamellia, you absolutely amaze me with not only your creativity, but your sense of color and composition. You have so many layers that just flow from one to the next so effortlessly without looking at all contrived. I sit here with my tail humbly between my legs, because I could never arrange so many elements without having it look cluttered. Oh, you just don't know what a gift you have, my dear! I mean...look how you have repeated your circles through brads (or whatever they are), the tag's holes and the eyelet, and the repetition of the fishtales and tags. It's art at it's finest! Your crackle is just amazing, the antiquing of of the clock and hands are just perfect, and my favorite detail...how you tie your jute and weave it through the eyelet. Such a perfect finishing touch that I just adore! How do you THINK of these things????? Thank you for sharing your technique on the crackle. Looks like I've got more shopping to do! You Rock! Hugs!

  56. Wow so many layers, so many details, so much gorgeousness to ponder over! I love the colours and the way you have arranged them. Fabulous creation as always hun!!
