Hello Wednesday! Today’s workdesk finds me working on this month’s Tim Holtz tag.
This time around he had a faux chalk drawing technique. It involves embossing a stamped image and then rubbing over the embossing with chalk.
I couldn’t find the brand he called for, but I figured Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder would do the trick.
As you can see, the more detailed the image, the more muddy the design. The good news is that I finally got around to using this stamp and die set. 🙂
If your stamped image is more of an outline, that works much better. If it looks like it could have been drawn with chalk, then great!
I’m not super thrilled with the look, and I hate having chalk dust all over my desk. Grit, ugh.
So that’s what’s on my workdesk today. It’s all part of a massive weekly blog hop where we take a look at the work spaces of other creative folks from all over the world. Sometimes neat, sometimes messy, often inspiring and always fun. Join us if you have a little time for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.
