Tando Technique Wednesday


My fellow DT'er, Joanne, and I are still on our technique journey, passing loads of stash on the way!! lol  This week we are "dry embossing" the Tando Chippie.

Here is my piece:-

The base is a Tando ATC - and boy what fab atc bases they are too... this was run thro' the cuttlebug with the d'vine swirls embossing folder.  It is quite scary putting chipboard thro' the bug as the plates tend to bend and creak a bit!! well mine do - but, its a fab result so close your eyes and keep going!! lolxx  Once embossed I then swirled tumbled glass di onto a mat and picking up the ink with my blending tool transferred the colour to the atc.....once I'd achieved the required results, I then ran the vintage photo pad over the top of the embossed swirls, this was then finished off with a coat of inka gold and the edges hi-lighted with the vintage photo distress ink.

The Tando domino in the centre was stamped with a paperartsy stamp and then embossed using the diamonds in the rough folder and coloured in the same way, only faded jeans di was used to hi-light the diamonds.

The dragonfly is also a Tando piece and this was coloured using the neocolour 2's and rock candy, pearls and a bead added!

Do try embossing the chipboard it gives a fantastic look and finish.

Pop on over to the tando blog and see what Joanne has come up with - gorgeous!!
