Today’s challenge is “Show Us Some Metal or Glass.” The idea is to create a project using some of the supplies you’ve been hoarding. I made my project with some beautiful stamps from Sin City Stamps, silk sari ribbon and metal components.
This challenge motivated me to use some metal components I've been hoarding!
I used the stamps to add dimension to the sari ribbon and to tie the colors together. First, I chose the ribbon I wanted to use:
I used the keys from the Sin City Stamps Dressforms set, a decorative strip from the Rosette Hearts set, and a pretty scroll motif from the Metal Madness set. I used ColorBox Chalk Ink in French Blue and heatset the ink with a medium-hot iron. It was my first time stamping on silk. The fabric wicks the ink more than cotton does, but I expected that, so I did not expect images as crisp as usual.
Here's an excerpt from the Craft Hoarders Challenge blog:
"Challenge #8 Show us Some Metal or Glass Do you hoard gears, pins, brads, eyelets, frames, and other metal do-dads? Do you have a thing for tiny light bulbs and glass vials? Do junk drawers make you giddy? Do you hang out in office supply stores so you can score funky paperclips? Do bottle caps make you swoon? Dig through your hoard to find something metal or glass (or both) and make a project to share!
One talented participant will receive these prizes, donated by Sin City Stamps and Really Reasonable Ribbon! Challenge Rules are HERE. Make sure you LINK your project up using the Link Tool on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog."
