Harlequin Tin (ETA: Featured on Technique Tuesday’s blog!)

**Edited to add:  This tin is being featured on the Technique Tuesday blog today, 1/12/12!  Please go check out their blog and their amazing stamps!**

Good evening, my fellow mavens!  I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend so far.  I know after a CRAZY busy weekend last week, we kept it pretty low key this week.  Just keep your eyes peeled.  I will be updating you on my newest and most exciting artsy adventure yet!

But before I get to that, I’m going to show you what I did to try and break the chains of this INSANE creative R U T I’ve been in.  All I wanted to do was walk away for a while.  But, we all know we just can’t WALK AWAY!  Sooooooo, I decided to use the awesome “Harlequin” background stamp by Techinque Tuesday (sent to me by my very good friend, the awesomely fabulous Cassie) and some alcohol inks on an old 7 Gypsies tin I’ve had in my stash for a couple years.  And THIS is what I came up with:

With some fabulous Gauche Alchemy Punchinella, a few items from the red, white, and black mixed media color kits, some ZVA Creative bling, and a Prima floral stem, I dressed up this tin quite right!

Silver Punchinella perfectly dresses up the top

I also made this wonderful accordion flower using some Ouchless Cardboard, Red Velvet glimmer mist, and ZING embossing powder.

Here’s a little comparison of an undressed accordion flower and a dressed one.

Now for the “big adventure” I alluded to earlier.  I am no longer a “design team” member for Gauche Alchemy.  I am now a co-owner and partner!  I now handle the “logistical” side of things for Gauche Alchemy and am looking forward to helping the rest of the Gauche Mamas take things to the next level!

I know!  Exciting right?!  Talk about an ADVENTURE!!  I will still make projects and get creative because THAT is in my bloooooood.
