This week the Challenge being offered up at Studio L3 is
Technique 8: Repurposed Packaging
Tim Holtz: A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2, page 62
I used this challenge to make some ATC for the swap on the All Things Time Yahoo Group.
I took the plastic packaging from some Grunge Board and stamped on it using Stazon ink.
Then I flipped the packaging over and mounted it to card stock that I had colored with Distress Stains and Distress Inks using Glossy Accents.
This is a close up of just one of the cards. Even though I didn't add any texture to the packaging I love how the whole piece took on the slick look of the plastic.
An even closer shot.
I wish you could see the slick, wet look each ATC has. The detail of the stamp really pops behind the packaging.
