My girls were off on a play date today so I had tons of Krafty time to myself!! Yeah!!!  :)
I was on such a role today in my craft room that I made three cards for today. I wanted to talk a little about this last one because some of the details didn't really show up that well in my photo. I wanted to create a scene but wasn't really sure how I wanted to do it. I first thought about a pop up card but my Tin man was a bit thin and flimsy so I scratched that idea. Then I thought maybe an easel card would work nicely...and I'm quite happy the way it all came together. I found some great papers in my stash as the backdrop, some it you might recognize from and old 6x6 from Stampin Up.The stone paper I'm not sure where it came from, sorry. Probably a DCWV pack but i can't say for sure. So I dusted off a couple of old tools to create the scene, like my heat gun and my fiskars dry embossing plates. First of all I embossed the Tin man onto some silver metallic cardstock with some black embossing powder and I paper pieced his ax.  I had an embossing plate that kinda looked like a stone pathway so I used that on some glittery yellow cardstock to create the yellow brick road. Really it was all quite simple, I liked how simple and clean it looked so I kept it just as is. :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by and if you're still with me through all of this you're next stop on the blog hop is, Melanie.  HAPPY HOPPING!!
