Crazy Cats Dream

I am posting today on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  I wanted a simple card with a simple background technique.  Not something I usually create.  Stop in and see the tutorial for this quick card.

Geared Up for May's Remix

I barricaded myself in my room for an hour so I could whip off May's Remix.  Hands up if you're having fun creating (and looking at)  these Remix Tags.  Me...ME...!
I went for a masculine Geared Up Remix Tag.  Father's Day is just around the corner and lets face it.  I love to create masculine anything.  

I used the Time Traveler set for my tag.  Layering with one of the Documented stamps.

Oh which stencil to choose?  I was tempted to use lots.  But I ended up with the Gears because I love it!  I cut the Tiny Tattered Florals and inked the tag after the texture paste dried.

I love how the colours turned out.  I used the leftover stain for my ribbon.  Here come the gears!

The resist from the washi is perfect.  I wasn't sure about the keys but I like.

A sticky tab thingy and this lovely sentiment Rub On. I added a scrap of stained ribbon with my tiny attacher.

I used the Tinest of Florals on the Time Travelers Lapel.  There is a teeny leaf too.  Look hard.  It's tru…

Check it out.
I used real leather and cut with the Passport Book die.  I sanded the edges to get that worn look.  I inked up some mat board for the letters and set aside to dry.
I love that the pages can be cut with the die too.  I inked the pages then added some Ephemera pieces.

I used glue n'seal and black soot marker to create the smudging.

My assignment was to use a magazine to journal.  I used the Fall issue and cut out the title and balloons for one of the pages.

I cut the inked Block Talk Capital XL Die to create the "EXPLORE" for the front.  

I glued the leather pieces together to for the Passport Book then I glued the Explore.  I wanted the Passport Book to close, so I used the Pock…
