Travelling with a country view


A new challenge starts today on the Country View Crafts challenge blog - our theme is on your travels.
I have made a layered tag with the base being a mop up tag stamped with the tyre track stamp from Tim Holtz road trip set. The top layer was also a mop up - very dark and grungy but had some metallics in it so once I had embossed it and added a little treasure gold I really liked it.
My cogs were cut from one of my dark wood effect painted master boards. I then treated them with a little dry brushed gesso followed by some Deco Art translucent paint.



Do check out all the design team makes today over at Country View and of course we will be back throughout the month with a few more ideas.

  15. Simply brilliant - the grungy metallic look is great - and the diagonal tyre tracks give the whole thing such movement - really cool!
