Linda said Gunge Paper or Board and Simon said emboss and you really can’t get any better than that. Now, Grunge is an awesome medium. The best of say, leather and paper and it lends itself to major construction projects. It’s easy to cut/pierce and extremely pliable. I, however, was never going to be able to pull off a construction project this week and was in need of another prompt. My favorite crafting cohort and consult said birdcage and off I went. The TH baroque frame, cut from grunge board, has been dry embossed with a texture fade and had various coloring items applied to it. Home brewed glimmer mist, distress inks, stains and a schmear of silver dauber. The bird cage, bird, flourish and donut, all grunge board, have been heat embossed and then Uteed. A deliciously unpredictable embossing method that I learned from Stamptramp. The only “construction” I did was to prop up the various levels of materials. The bird was easy to align with the bird cage and frame, using foam tape. The flourish was cut again from grunge board and cut and glued where needed to make the whole thing lay over the frame and cage correctly. What fun! The tag is super sparkly with home brew PP mist and stamped with my favorite and first TH stamp in silver. I’ll ad more “stuff” when I can catch another minute or 2.
