Tin Type

I am so excited to share with you my first Quick Quotes blog post!!

The Tin Type collection has my handsome little men written all over it. I love the muted colors with the surprise pop of orange. I wanted to play up the contrast so I matted the Tin Type 100 side A with a 2nd sheet of side B and added a strip from Tin Type 500 across the layout.

To help carry out the "steam punk" theme, I used cog wheels masks and embossing powder on my background.

I inked the gears from the Balloon - 8" x 10" Chipboard with Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalking Inks and lightly embossed with copper embossing powder.
I cut word strips from Tin Type 500 and used as journaling on my layout. I also inked throughout the layout with Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalking Inks and Baja Blue PowderPuff Chalking Inks.

That's all for now! See you next post!
