Steampunk men and Tando

Morning....

I just adore the Tando chippie block pieces...be it journalling blocks or the blank sheets...this piece was made using a piece which is approx 4.5" square with a wavy edge.....



The base was painted with dylusions acryllic paint and once dry a Tando Stencil placed over the top, have you tried the stencils? they are fab! they are really thick plastic and so are easily held in place and give fantastic results with paste and paint alike...the one used here was the cogs.....and I painted acryllic paint over the top - once dry I hi-lighted the edges with a white pen.  The T!m Holtz men and hand were stamped onto grungepaper which had been coloured using distress stains... the edge of the block was hi-lighted using a gold krylon pen.

Then I made this with it...


The brown backing paper is co-ordinations black magic paper....which was run thro' the bug with an embossing file...the banner is by T!m Holtz and the metal cogs act as a stay.....

Do pop on over to the Tando Challenge blog - this months theme is "Go Wild" and there is a fab prize up for grabs - you don't have to use any Tando products, but, if you do you're entered into the draw twice! There is also another two DT pieces on show today....we'd love to see your interpretation on the theme...xx

Terrific card, the outlining on the stencil cogs is very effective. Looking forward to seeing your new blog header here as well XOXO Zoe
