This post is uncharacteristically short, as Mr. Holtz has thoroughly laid out all the steps, including revisits to his original step-outs for these two "remixed" techniques.
I've not tried the chalkboard bit before - it was a bit dicey as I had not used the Frosted Crystal Antiquities embossing powder previously and couldn't tell if I was overheating, per his caution to avoid that. But at last, it seemed to come together, even though my choice of the "Love You" framelit set was, in hindsight, too detailed to really do justice to this beautiful stamp set. Ah well, live and learn.
After placing everything with foam dots on the chalked-up torn tag background, it was way too plain, so I peeled everything off and added some random script stamping, again using the Frosted Crystal powder, now that I had the hang of it, and re-chalking. Much better!!
I adore the Industrial technique, as it satisfies both my bling and grunge desires at the same time... and it highlights the dry embossing so wonderfully, regardless of style. Here is the tag in full - with the word band, another little bit at the top of the chalkboard, and a very light silvery seam binding bow.
Now I just hope I am not skidding in on the tail end of the month from here on out! But, I suppose, better late than never!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and if you've time, please do leave a comment. I appreciate each one, and every one of you!
