Wendy Vecchi Group Challenge


Today’s project is for the challenges at both the Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group and Our Creative Corner.  The WV challenge is to use at least one of Wendy’s Studio 490 stamps, the color blue, and something metal. Our Creative Corner has a grid from which you might choose ingredients (one material from Column A, one from Column B, etc.). My choices of the OCC ingredients were Ink, Metal, and Ribbon.


I’ve used several of Wendy’s background stamps and her phrenology head chick along with Tim’s Ideaology drawer pull.  The words are from his new Remnant Rubs.  The black parts are Sizzix dies and I ran the bottom one through Tim’s Crackle Texture Fade.  I colored the tag with layers of Distress and Archival Inks, and the face with Distress Markers and Distress Inks.

Thanks very much for visiting today.  Have a great weekend!
