Happy Birthday, Dad!


Hello again friends!  Today's post is for Frilly and Funkie - it's the Funkie week to play in our Tic Tac Toe challenge.  For this piece, I chose the left to right diagonal Metal, Metallic Stains and a Button.  I based it on a jumbo tag that I had done the Crumpled Kraft Suede technique on.  LOVE this technique which is new to me.  It makes a wonderful background for a project.  I used two different Artistic Outpost sets for this tag.  The background was stamped mostly with the Industrial Backgrounds set and the top layer stamps are mostly from Diesel Punk.  I did use an old, old Hero Arts Happy Birthday stamp, mostly because that was the only one I had small enough to fit on the tickets.

If you double click on the photograph, you can see the metallic stains.  I used Tarnished Brass, which I blotted small spots on my craft sheet and then rubbed the tag over it.  It just stained the high points and made a nice pattern, which of course I covered up.  My metal is the metal grid which was originally silver, but I rubbed embossing ink on it and then heat embossed Black Soot Distress EP on it.  I used two TH ticket dies and the buttons are vintage ones from my stash.

This is a really fun challenge and I hope you will play along with us over at Frilly and Funkie.  Be sure to stop by to see what the Funkie girls have to share!

What a gorgeous tag, Linda. Love how you stamped on the large ticket die... such a fabulous base for the car. The metals look awesome too. Funny how we chose the same line and made such different things. Good luck with all the house business!

Oh, cool - that's the line I've just played - with completely different results! LOVE this tag, and all its brilliant masculine images. Never really known what one might do with the ticket strips, but now I can see what a great element they make used in such a great way.

Can't believe you're still getting all this done, given the house situation - you're a marvel!
