is the theme over at DragonsDream TagItOn and I LOVE it. Yellow is such a vibrant (but also quite tricky) colour to work with! And I LOVE lightbulbs - this time I used my beloved 3rd Eye lightbulbs (the big and small ones) - AND I love wire too. The perfect challenge for me then - so I had to join in. :)
For the background I die cut a white #8 size tag and gave it a layer of "mustard seed" DI using my favourite TCW "Mini gears" stencil and the blending tool.
Then I cut some gears using the Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers dies and used the left overs from the white card as a stencil too to add another layer of "mustard seed". The cut out gears were blended with the same colour and put aside.
Using archival black jet ink I stamped a "lightbulbs border" using the two small lightbulb stamps from 3rd Eye and stamped the big light bulb onto some white card and cut it out.
I did the same with the Tim Holtz pointing hand image and adhered them to the tag using sticky foam pads I cut to size. In between the sticky pads and the card I put a piece of white coated wire (a left over from my beading hobby) I first wrapped around the bulb socket.
The word "shine" was stamped using my brand new Tim Holtz "worn text" letter stamps! (Love them!)
The gears were fixed to the tag with some big worn copper brads and cut to shape once in place.
The edges of the tag were distressed and blended with "black soot" distress ink. For a finish I attached the gorgeous measuring tape ribbon. Wallah! ;)
Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Whitsunday!
