SO, a fantabulous idea such as this had to be for something special... something important... something sassy... something like PaperCrafts Magazine Gallery Idol competition.
I have to admit, Gallery Idol intimidates me a bit. I mean, we're talking cream of the crop here - the most fantastic crafters from all around the world bringing their A-game to compete for some seriously awesome prizes. It is worth a try - it is worth my best. And scrabble tiles, my friends - well, I think they're pretty darn great.
My tiles were cut using coaster board and Papertrey's Alpha-block die then stamped with the My Favorite Things (MFT) Typewriter Alphabet (numbers are also part of the set). I used Ranger Tea Dye distress ink and the PTI tea-dye duo for "antiquing". A few of the tiles got a bit of Fresh Snow as well. I didn't want them all to look the same - some needed to be more aged, etc. Then, I embossed each tile with 2 coats of UTEE for dimension and shine.
The patterned paper is from October Afternoon and my tag was made using the MFT Notched Tag die-namic and stamps. The little bit of sparkle makes me smile... something sassy to keep it "me".
Hope you have a great weekend... I've got Father's Day cards to get done so you can look forward to a few masculine cards next week. HUGS!
What's that? One more look? Ok.
