Week 8 of Linda's Studio L3 challenge.  This time we were to following the technique found on page 62 of Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities vol II. This challenge was called re purposed packaging.
I first embossed a piece of packaging material with cracked embossing folder.  I then used glue on the raised edges of the design.  I think this makes it look like it's raining?  The glue then created a resist on my tag.  So when I added my distressed ink, the glue resisted the ink.

I also used packaging material to cut out the fence, embossed it with wood grain, and then used alcohol ink to stain.  Also this week at Simon Says Stamp & Show, the challenge is to show some texture. The lucky winner will receive a $50.00 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp Store.  I got the idea of the glue from Kaz.
I have just noticed that the theme is the same as the challenge on Artful Times. So I am also entering here.

I finally started scrapbooking.  The title of this page is; "Dance like a Butterfly, Sting like as Bee".  My son decided to qualify in; Kick Boxing, Mauy Thai.  The pic is not very good, but it's all I have.
I am going to use this for Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog.  The lucky winner will get a $50.00 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp Store.  The theme for the challenge is; One for the Boys.  I used distress inks, embossing, a lot of stamps and some Sizzix dies.
