It is the first Monday of 2013 and Simon Says Stamp and Show has a new challenge for us! This time the theme is "embrace the old". You can spin it the way you like, whether you use an old technique, use an old stamp, make something look old or maybe you think of something completely different, it is all possible.
When I think of "embrace the old" I immediately think of timeworn techniques. Because I am crazy about making things look old. If it's bydistressing, grunging it up or time worn techniques, I just love it. I'm always looking for ways to make things look old.
For this week, I've altered an empty cigar box that I got from Lein. For some reason I'm always a bit hesitant to alter things, but when I'm in my groove (lol) then I really enjoy it very much. First I covered the box with pieces of cardstock and adhered some embellishments. Painted it all black and then I did the Andy Skinner's Drybrush technique to make it look really old. This is really my favorites timeworn technique!
To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers.
