Wow - we are into June already! And up to week 8 of the Compendium of Curiosities 2 challenge already as well. This week's challenge was soo much fun and one of the first ones that I've done where my ideas just flowed... with a little help from the Master for inspiration thrown in!
The technique this week is called "Repurposed Packaging" and it is found on page 62 of Tim's book. As the lovely Linda mentions on her blog this week, I too have quite a stockpile of acetate packaging (mostly from Tim's Idealogy stuff, hehe) that I've saved. I recently bought several compartment-type plastic organizers and put all of my Ideology stuff in them, and I save a bunch of the packaging, so it came in handy this week.
For my tag, I ran a piece of the acetate through the Vagabond using the rivet texture fade. Then I applied AI in silver metallic (one of the mixatives) and then burnished it with some Archival black. Perfect metal sheeting!! I stamped the bottom portion of the black tag with Snow Cap pigment ink, and added a bunch of findings and some foil ribbon and voila! Steampunk baby...I love it!!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
