This is NOT a Card...but it's Scary!



Ciao a tutti e bentornati! Non sono impazzita...lo so che sapete che questa qui sopra è una Tag...ma il nuovo tema della Sfida del Lunedì di SIMON SAYS STAMP è proprio questo...NOT A CARD...più chiaro di così!

Hello and welcome back! No...I'm not gone mad...I know that you can tell a Tag from a Card, but that's the new theme of the Monday Challenge over at SIMON SAYS STAMP Blog...NOT A CARD...and that's that!



Ho preparato il background della Tag 'schiacciando' i Distress Oxide inks Antique White, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo e Peacock Feather sul craft mat e spruzzando con acqua. Ho aggiunto dei tocchi di Vintage Photo con i Layering Stencils Industrial e Typo. Ho timbrato l'ingranaggio del set 'Dapper' di T.H. con il Distress Oxide Vintage Photo e cosparso con la polvere per embossing Distress Vintage Photo. Poi ho ripassato i bordi con Distress Inks  Ground Espresso e Black Soot.

Created the background 'smooshing' Distress Oxide Inks Antique White, Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo and Peacock Feather on the craft mat, then spritzed with water. Added few details using Vintage Photo and Layering stencils Industrial and Typo. I have stamped the Gear from T.H. 'Dapper' set with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo and embossed with Distress Vintage Photo Embossing powder and a heat tool. I 'distressed' the borders using Distress Inks Ground Espresso and Black Soot.


Devo ammettere che non vedevo l'ora di usare questa nuova fustella di Tim Holtz...e perchè non dare una declinazione Steampunk al nostro 'Spaventapasseri'? (dai ormai lo sapete che io metto ingranaggi e rondelle in ogni dove...Lol!)

I have to admit that I couldn't wait to use this new die by Tim Holtz...and why not give it a Steampunk feel to our cute 'Scarecrow'? (c'mon...by now you all know that I stick gears and cogs wherever I can...Lol!)



Ingranaggi, lettere e corvetto, nonchè il bellissimo Spaventapasseri sono tutti ritagliati usando fustelle di Tim Holtz, poi come 'sostegno' ho aggiunto un chipboard di Boozybear e vari ingranaggi di metallo. Per finire ho incollato un paio di frasi dai 'Clippings' Idea-ology, che mi sembravano più che appropriate per questo progetto...uno Spaventapasseri meccanico...un'invenzione degna di un'inventore pazzo...he he he...Spaventoso...Lol!

Gears, letters and the cute 'crow', along with the beautiful Scarecrow are all die-cuts from Tim Holtz various dies...then added also a Boozybear chipboard gear and few metal ones.
As final touches added a couple of Idea-ology 'Clippings', which seemed quite appropriate for this project...a Mechanical Scarecrow...something born from a crazy Inventor's twisted mind...he he he...Scary...Lol!

I really like how this tag turned out! I thought it was so visually interesting to see the way you combined gears with all of those rustic elements. I also really liked how you made the scarecrow out of burlap! This is filled to the brim with amazing texture and I'm so glad you took the time to share your skills with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I always look forward to your entries!
