Red Helmet

      AAB (About A Boy) having fun for their Sept 1 Challenge and crossover with AAG (About A Girl) the challenge is to create a page with black white + one color. And here is my attempt, combined with Let's Get Sketchy September Week 2 Challenge.

Sketch by Ashley Horton





I am still behind using enamel dots so
 I used brads instead (need to use up my stash). 
And since I have no small white brad, I made my
own using ink and embossing powder.


use a piece of cardstock to hold the brads


ink them 


embossing powder


heating tool


Voila! Paints and nail polish 
will be great too (I think). I will try
and will let you the result.

Supplies :

  • cardstock - Authentique
  • patterned paper - Fancy Pants, Studio Calico and American Crafts
  • brads, twines - American Crafts
  • spray ink - Tattered Angels
  • chipboard - Heidi Swapp
  • alphas - Basic Grey
  • tab - Pinkpaislee
  • ink pad - Brilliance
  • embossing powder - Recollection
