11_CCC33This week's challenge at Studio L3 brings us to page 56 of Tim Holtz's great book, the Compendium of Curiousities.  I tried a few things but didn't love them.  Then I pulled out an old embellie box and found this hinge from Making Memories.  Love how you can hide a private note or whatnot with a hinge.  I put a stamped sentiment behind this one. Voila!




 11_CCC33AInked the tag with distressings. Stamps are by Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous and Hampton Arts. Bling is Basic Grey. Black door knob is Enamel Accents (Ranger). Thanks for taking a look!

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any suggestions?

    Marjie, I absolutely LOVE this tag! What a great vintage work of art. The hinge is a brilliant idea, and a perfect way to incorporate the altered metal challenge. That little door is FABULOUS! Spectacular piece, my dear!

    What a great idea. I would never have thought to use a hinge on a card.

    Oh, Margie this is quite something. Love how you incorporated a hinge on the front of a tag. Really, really love it!

    This is really cool, Marjie! Love the fragment with the hinge, very clever idea, and it looks fab with that stamping!
