Rusted ScreamPunk?!?

It's my turn to do the Saturday StepXStep at Frilly & Funkie.  I really didn't know what to show you, as my sickly mind (;-D) has not been focused on crafting lately, but since the challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show was "Rustification", I decided to do a tutorial on how to create an old rusted look using Distress Ink and Ranger's Clear Fine Embossing Powder, called...and appropriately I might add...Distress Ink Enameled Rust, that I learned from Tim at Ranger U, but with a few addends. I initially wanted to do another video, but my throat and head said no way, so instead there are mounds of pictures! Here are all the finished projects that I created making a Masterboard, but to see how I created the rust look, head on over to Frilly & Funkie
I was able to make six holographic ATC's, to be swapped at the All Things Tim Yahoo Group, and...
...two #8 tags, one of which goes to the talented Sandra of Made By Sannie for a little side swap (Sounds shady!) we have going. The postcard is pretty much the same as the tags, but it was made from a separate rusted piece I was experimenting with before the Masterboard. It is for a swap from another Yahoo Group I'm in, and is for Elena of  My Name Is Elena.



The background of the tag before the ScreamPunk  (A name I read on someone's blog.) Guy was added.That someone was Shelly. Remember her ScreamPunk Pop Up Tag?
 
 
His goggles are made of Liquid Pearls, and I added his spine bones to hold his neck tie and skeleton key.
This is the postcard, although it could never be mailed like this! I just can't help it...it needed lots of stuff!
I decorated the back, and here is the stamp I made.
Supplies:


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

    1. The holographic images are from Recollections from Michaels. I cut them up, added to them, and then added them back into the frame. They come in a pack of 4, and are located with all the Halloween scrapbook items. Thank you!
