Out of the Hat Challenge

This month I'm the Guest DT member over on the Challenge Blog "Out of a Hat Creations" - this week the theme is:-

ALTERED PEG/PAPERCLIP OR BOTH

So, I've come up with these:-




This is a picture of my altered peg and three paperclips together



and this is my peg.....


the peg has been covered using the block technique using the prima engraver papers and then metal bits from my stash box...

Then, for my paperclips:-


The square is a tando twinchie - this was covered in prima engraver paper, then stamps, bling and lace added before adding a typewriter which is a Darice stamp - this was triple embossed and a pen nib added....the middle paperclip is a Tando button base with tando mini flowers and a butterfly - all of these were coloured using distress paints then doodled with bling added, the last clip is a Tando bottle which was coloured using distress inks and a coating of Ranger crackle glaze..... the paperclips used are jumbo clips.

This month over on the Out of a Hat Challenge blog there is a prize kindly donated by Tando Creative - here is what you could win if you take part.....

A lovely selection of minis.... Good Luck

Don't forget to pop over to Out of a Hat blog to see what the DT have come up with.
