After thought:)

I just kept looking at my finished
piece for my entry in Retro Cafe Art's
Contest and just thought
it needed a little something....

Now it's finished:)


Happy Sunday Morning 'Shout Out' :) :)

Hello Everyone:)
I realized this weekend that
my dear friend Kristin Hubick
at Retro Cafe Art
has another Contest going on and
is about to come to an end in 5 days!

So if you go to her blog
(link in my favourites listing:)
all the particulars are on her 
posting for her wonderful contest!
There's still 5 days to go, so you
still have time to make an entry!

Being Sunday morning, ( I woke up
at 5 a.m. dying to be in the art room,
so here's what I was up to:)
My Entry into Kristin's Contest:)
I love her ATC Holder Kits
and have already in past blog postings
showed how I like to put them together 
and embellish them.
So here's another one, and this time, all
the products used in this project came from
Kristin's shop Retro Cafe Art.
(Kristin is also the owner of Coffee Break Design which
manufactures all of these great products!)
Clever girl!
So the basics:)
I took her masonite ATC Holder Kit
and glued it all together using my favourite
Glossy accents by Inkssentials.
Then, I painted the ATC Holder, inside and outside,
with Deco Brand Metal Paint, White.
(Also from Retro Cafe Art).
After it dried, (and this paint dries really fast!),
I then used Tim Holtz 'Distress Inks to create
a background. Then I took one of my favourite 
script stamps and randomly stamped all over
the outside with Stazon Black ink.
Once the ink had dried, I glued the 
Coffee Break Design Cut-Out Wing Set to the
sides of the ATC Holder.
(I inked the wings like the ATC Holder, but used
Sepia Coloured Stazon Ink.)
Once the wings were secure, I then embellished
the project with Coffee Break Designs great
masonite cogs! Love these things!
I took Tim Holtz metal brads, and cut off the 'tails',
and glued them into the centres of the cogs.
A few more little embellishments from
Kristin's product line, ( as it is for her contest:)
Then I put my trademark 
'Tim Holtz' Hitches
on the bottom of the ATC Holder for feet!
It's one of my favourite uses for his product:):)
A little pearl in the middle of
the cog, and it's all done:)

So that is how I spent my Sunday morning this morning, 
and it just goes to show with still 5 days to go, you
still have time to make something to enter in 
Kristin's Contest!
