WW2 in pastels & zettiology

Well, as promised yesterday here are my WW2 / auto parts bin inspired baby cards:

In reality the only link here is the stencilled letters, but anything for a good headline!

I was quite productive today down at Monika's shop (Beachhouse Boulevard) - I managed to get pages for a Zettiology accordian book I am participating in almost completed. I am really pleased with the way they are coming along.

The background on this was really easy, and fun to do - based on a Tim Holtz technique. I used paint dabbers by adirondack - base coat (chilli pepper), when dry I clear embossed a Zetti house image on the top (to become the hat/crown) then I used a purple dabber, followed by a yellow one as a top coat. I "stripped" the yellow one with a huggies to get a more translucent look, and the embossed section was rubbed back so that the red showed through completely. Doodles in white & gold gel pen and gold krylon, dymo lettering and a zetti city-scape stamped on transparency along the bottom.

Tomorrow I am going to tackle ... microscope slide holders!!!!

till then fellow bloggers & blogettes
