CCC Week 26...

A new year and a new Compendium Challenge, go over to
Linda's blog
to find out what it is all about.



This week's technique is another new one for me. I did not
have the correct colour of distress embossing powder so
had to use a different one, but I think it turned out just fine.
I actually managed to do this one without any mishaps,
maybe it is just what I needed to get back into the creative
groove, so to speak.

I have not had much creative time the last week or so as we
have been doing a re-model of our laundry room. The good
thing is that I am now hopefully going to get to my paints
and craft supplies without having to take every box out of
the cupboard to get to the one I want. I am seeing a blog post
about this in the future...

Like me...your substitute for the color of EP worked great!

Jane said...

Love your entry this week. It's very subtle the way the embossing matches the rusted gears. I don't know about you - I stayed bundled up during our "AZ" dose of winter.

This tech is perfect for those gadget gears. This is a great piece, Marlene, I really love that sentiment, too!

WOW, great job on this. I too had to do a little substitution for my ATC but it turned out OK. That's what makes these challenges a real challenge when you don't have an exact match and have to come up with a similar product. I used a different shade of distressed powder and it worked perfectly as did yours.

Jolanda said...

Linda Ledbetter said...

Oh, cool, Marlene! I love those cogs. The rusted grunge looks fabulous, and the embossed background and perfectly-chosen sentiment make this piece really special. The color you used for the technique worked beautifully!

Good luck with your remodel!
