Gingersnap Creations Challenge: Found Objects

The theme of the new challenge on the Gingersnap Creations Challenge blog is "found objects", and this is my entry. Why not pop over to their blog and see how the other Design Team members have tackled this theme? :)

The found object on this is the bottle cap. Stamps are by Tim Holtz, Darkroom Door, Crafty Individuals and U.N.Known :)

Colour is courtesy of distress ink pads and promarkers, stamping used Memento black, Archival black and Archival sepia.

The photobooth pics are by Darkroom Door, and were torn, sanded and inked until they looked like they had been .... er... torn, sanded and inked :)

The screws are not real ones, they just look like they are, they're actually snaps!

The French sheet is actually a rubber stamp of an old shoe bill. It was stamped with black Archival and then I tapped a Brushed Corduroy distress ink pad onto my craft sheet and spritzed very generously with water. The sheet was then laid in the puddle and dried with a heat gun. The edges of the whole thing were sanded and distressed with more Brushed Cordury.

As ever click on the image for a larger view :)
