Woodware UK Sketch 24: A Heart for the Tin Man

Life is sketchy once again for the Woodware UK in Sketch 24! You can see the general layout to the left, and my version at the top. I chose to use the new Stampendous Tin Man Reader, designed by Lisa Hindsley for the focal panel. He was colored and shaded with markers, all in shades of gray, with a pop of purple for his bow tie. Chances are the Tin Man has a bunch of cogs and gears making up the majority of his insides, so I machine embossed a panel of Black Magic cardstock with the Dreamweavers Gears stencil, and sanded the surface a bit to reveal the color core. A thin strip of aluminum was also embossed with the Gears, and some Color Solutions inks were daubed over the surface (and over the die cut heart lock). A little sanding to remove  the color off of the top embossing, and a brush over of Black StazOn ink added more dimension. I didn't have nuts and bolts to attach on the card, but Woodware has these wonderful Screwhead brad fasteners which were the perfect embellishment. Since the Tin Man is reading up on how to take care of his new heart (written by Skip Tabeet...say it outloud quickly! Hee hee, that Lisa, she loves her puns!), I added a sweet sentiment from the Stampendous Clear Friendly Phrases set.

We'd love for you to play along and link your creation on the Woodware UK blog. Remember, one of us post each day, so be sure to sign up for email reminders on the Woodware UK blog.
