Hello and welcome

My project here today is inspired by the talented Seth Apter and it is also my DT project for Ally's Angels and our new challenge starting today. The theme is Anything Goes. Winners price is a 15£ voucher for the shop at Wild Orchid Crafts

I love Seth's dies and for this project I used two of them, cross bars and robo bar. I also used his embossing powder baked texture in vintage beeswax for my backgrounds and ancient amber on all the metal decorations. 

I created my backgrounds using distress oxides, background stamps, archival ink in black, stencils and baked texture embossing powder vintage beeswax from Seth Apter/Emerald Creek

I use the cross bars die from Seth Apter/Spellbinders for my focal point and I found two nails in our basement to use on top. I cut out four cross bars and glued them together and colored them using distress oxides. The nails, and all other metal decorations as well, are treated with baked texture ancient amber and distress crayons black soot

The chipboard quote chips and arrow are from Tim Holtz.
