Travel without Observation by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! It's my turn again and I'm here to share an ATC :)

That's me Sioux by the way!

1. Stamped the the man image from the Mens Plate 001 #35......such a dapper chappie love the tash! archival coffee onto white card.....then used a punch the same size as my bottle top....and filled with glossy accents adding a touch of beadazzles jazz.
2. The base board was covered with Viva Decor Terra Sahara and stamped into whilst still wet using the mini lattice wire background that had been inked with walnut stain distress ink....(make sure you wash the terra off the stamp quickly ;) ) the texture this gives :)

3. Used my best tool (a finger!) to smudge Viva Decor Inca Gold rose in the central area and copper on the edges.
4. The wings are from T!m's Heart Wing die painted with Studio gesso then stamped with calligraphic mat 4 using pumice stone distress ink which also was used to age the edges.

5. Stamped the sentiment onto inked card and layered onto black card.

6. Used one of the fabulous little metal mini crowns.

....well actually I only used half a crown....those were the days! LOL.

.....cut the crown in half using my Tonic scissors

....Just to say that I did question the reason to buy yet another pair of scissors when instructed that these were the only things you would be allowed to take into the workshop I'm doing with T!m in February!....but honestly they are fabulous....I was having difficulty using my wire cutters but these scissors really did cut the metal like it was butter! :)

I love the dimensionality on this :) See you again soon!

xoxo Artyjen

Absolutely brilliant Sioux! Your background texture is gorgeous, & I love the bottle cap embellishment!
I thought the same about the scissors, but once I had them, I rarely use any others now!
