The way Jennifer has the class organized, one day she presents five techniques and we do our samples, and the next day she goes into greater detail about one or two of them and shows ways to use them in cards and other projects. Yesterday, she focused on embossing on acetate and ways to alter rosettes. I put the two together in one tag, with a steampunk theme. There is a method to my madness. I signed up for a steampunk tag swap on ATT and I'm getting a head start.
I used Tim's Steampunk embossing folder on the acetate, and it is backed with some brownish cardstock. The lovely lady is from Graphic45's Steampunk Debutante line, and I altered her in two ways. First of all, I replaced the hot air balloon that is her skirt with the very layered and altered rosette I made, and secondly (and I don't know how well this shows up in the photo), I added lots of lines on her with a copper colored glitter pen. I topped the tag with a bit of a zipper to continue the steampunk industrial look.
Now, onto today's samples. Again, sorry I can't go into details but once the class is over you will be able to get the PDFs. The link to get more information is on my last Inspiration Showcase post.

fingerinking (as much fun as it sounds) with distress ink watercoloring wing
Can you believe the amount of information so far? And this is a two week class! And, it was only $19. Maybe the best bargain I've ever gotten.
