My poor DH always gets the shaft - his birthday is just days after our niece's, DD's, and Valentines Day. By then, I'm crafted OUT. So, I took advantage of the recent anniversary challenge at PTI. The technique is emboss resist which was PERFECT for my needs. I wanted a toolbox like we have on the truck (DH is an umemployed commercial/industrial electrician). I couldn't WAIT to use the lil' tools from Daily Designs :)
I sponged smokey shadow over embossed pewter on soft stone cardstock. The stone was a little too soft, and the pewter too shiny, so the shadow ink helped tone it down. I also used my T6 Copic on the bright metal tag. The orange saddle stitch ribbon is a nod to Rigid tools (orange & black) - my DH's favorite tool brand ;) The tools are also embossed in pewter - Alli Miles, they are toooooo cute (for guy things...)
I'm lovin' this one.
