It time for challenge 15 at Linda's and it's based, as always on CofCII by Mr. Grungemaster himself, Tim Holtz. This week our challenge is Enameled Metal and it's found on page 56.
Since I was such a baaaad Aunt Sue and brain farted Favorite Only Niece's birthday, I thought I'd go ahead and work a full month in advance and get Favorite Youngest Nephew's 13th birthday tag done using this challenge. I used t!m's gears texture fade for this and added a bunch of gears and screws (that John nicely cut the heads off of for me!) and I even found in my stash a piece of a ruler with "13" on it, so I added to the tag as well. I even used another technique in the book, Faux Patina, on the largest gear! Now I have a month to get a gift card and get it in the mail in a more timely fashion so it gets to him before his birthday and not after like his sister's did! It's hell gettin' old, I tell ya!
