I now have toy parts to add to my creations! :)



Trick or treat

So, nephew #2 is pretty destructive and I now have toy parts to add to my creations! The wheels were taken off a broken tractor. The wheels were a tad too small for the Bows and Berries Halloween Ride digi so I did a little fussy-cutting. A little masking and inking with Tim Holtz masks and distress ink in black soot.

Go check out the new Bows and Berries challenge! :) Linking to Colours Dekor.

Supplies: Jenni Bowlin patterned paper, Bows and Berries digi, Tim Holtz masks, Ranger distress ink in black soot, SRM sticker, Copics, wheels from a broken toy.

P/s: Don't forget about my guest Piali's block stamping challenge...it ends on Friday! :)

*Edited* This card was featured on the Create blog! :)

This looks great! Love the masking and the vintage Halloween image. And such a great idea to use broken toys! I'm going to have to keep that in mind. Hmmm, I wonder if my son would notice any missing legos...

What a clever idea! My youngest son had, no still has, this fascination with chewing off the rubber wheels of his matchbox cars. We have wheels hiding in places that I don't know about I'm sure!
