Did you come up with “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”?
If you did – pat yourself on the back (I can’t reach from here, silly). This was the inspiration provided over at Dragons Dream Tag It On this week.
I spritzed the background using Pumice Stone and Worn Lipstick with a dash of Broken China as well and edged the tag with Vintage Photo. I stamped the plane and clock face using Stazon Dove Grey directly onto the tag and stamped the train ticket onto watercolour paper using the same ink. I then distressed it with Vintage Photo and popped it up on foam.
The car was made with hot glue, believe it or not! I brushed a latex mould with Perfect Pearls in Pewter and filled the mould using my hot glue gun. Not my own idea, of course – I am just not sure where on the net I found it.
Really cool fun if you have silicon or rubber moulds but don’t use the chocolate mould with the hot glue – messy, I am told. It seems you can use the low-temp glue guns but I don’t have one so can’t vouch for it.
I had heaps of fun making loads of different embellishments – some with added glitter, some with other pearl powders (eye shadow from the $$ shops works a treat) and some painted up with nail polish. I popped mine in the fridge for 5 minutes to set before I de-moulded them. The pearl powder ones work best, I think
Thanks for popping in to take a look.
