Adventure Card Scraps Of Darkness My Guy Kit

TGIF everybody! Hope you have something fabulous planned for the weekend! Before I head into the weekend, I would like to share a masculine card that I created using the Scraps Of Darkness September Kit-My Guy. I loved all the hot air balloons and grungy feel papers of this kit, and wanted to create a yummy, grunged up card that had that earthy feel to it, that I love so much.

I layered on a distressed layer of the kit paper, then took a piece of corrugated board and inked it up, did some stamping, and then took another piece of paper, did some tearing and added it onto the corrugated board.

I cut the hot air ballons out from some of the paper, and then took Tim Holtz Markers and colored them in. Next, I fussy cut them out and then attached them with foam tape for lots of dimension. I took 2 of the screw brads fromt the kit, set them in the corrugated board, then wrapped them with hemp rope.

I layered on some burlap, then took the the twill ribbon from the kit, and ran it across it. I then took one of the Kaisercraft Die Cuts from the kit and inked it, then coated it with UTEE for a glossy finish, and then I tooks some of the little gears that I created using this month's Creativity Add On, and attached them to the clock. I added a Tim Holtz metal clasp from my stash, and then faux attached one of the Prima Typo Bulbs from the Embellishment Add On.

Here is a close up of the little gears that I created with the Creativity Add On. This add on is the perfect way to try out new techniques like this one, that allowed you to mix your own resin, add the color (provided), and then pour it into a mold (also provided), and create your own gears. This Add On can be used over and over to produce these gears or items using other molds, or you can do like I did and buy some mold putty and create some molds of your own. I am looking forward to experimenting with this technique and getting to show them to you! With the Scraps of Darkness Kits, and Add Ons,  you will never get bored!! There is always something new and different, and we are alway sharing how we created with them in our forums, so I invite you to join us, and try out some new techniques of your own~ Until next time, Hugs, ~Renea
