All the details for this challenge can be found HERE.
Painted Industrial on page 46 of Tim's Compendium of Curiosities 3 explains this lovely technique. It appears easy but you can achieve a mess if you don't follow his instructions properly!!! As usual Tim and Mario have provided the Curiosity Crew with a stack of goodies to be given to their choice of entry plus there's a $50 voucher generously given by Inspiration Emporium for the overall winner. Give it a go, I am.
I have just managed to buy the 3 new 'bug' dies from Tim's alterations range with Sizzix. Not only are they all huge but the detail on the embossing folders is spectacular. I decided to use the bee and make a birthday card.
The base card is 8" x 8" and perfect to take the die cut. The zig zag round the edge was done ramdonly using a Hero Arts stamp and black Archival ink. I then used Tim's honeycomb stencil and wild honey distress ink - got to keep it all on the bee theme!!
I would love to tell you how I made the bee but I would have to shoot you afterwards, so am afraid you will just have to buy the book to learn the details. I did notice however, that the die is slightly different to the embossing folder in so much as the folder has antennae on the bee but there are none on the die - poor bee! Having drooled over the Curiosity Crew's samples I 'pinched' one idea and used a crown on the bee's head.
The card has been given so when it is opened next month I hope it brings a smile.
