- C6 white, 300 gsm, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope
- Snippet of turquoise card - though the colour is irrelevant because I covered it up right away!
- Self adhesive metal tape, two strips, used to cover the card
- I then ran the "faux" metal panel through my big shot inside a Tim Holtz embossing folder, to give texture
- Distress Paint in black soot applied to the embossed panel, allowed to start to dry before buffing off with a dry cloth leaving blackened areas to "age" my panel (much less smelly than last weeks tarmac technique but, I have to say, neither so much fun nor so effective)
- White card snippet which I coloured with Distress Inks: tea dye, crushed olive, iced spruce and black soot (an unusual colour combo for me)
- I then flicked water over the panel, allowed it to develop and then blotted with paper towel
- Inkadinkado steampunk balloon image stamped on to distressed panel using Versafine onyx black ink
- Paper Artsy "splatter" image stamped multiple times using Encore gold ink
- Spray and shine sprayed over both of the panels, to seal (new to me as I've not used it before - anyone else?)
- Black card for matting of both the image and embossing panels, border cut using the 1'16" edge of my perfect layering ruler ... when matting my image on to the textured panel I used Cosmic shimmer glue to the edge and then dimensional foam tape - to keep it level! Clever, or what?!?!?
How many of you are thinking of the Nimble bread advert from (MANY) years ago .... the song was "Up, Up and Away (in my beautiful balloon) by 5th Dimension .... I will be entering this make in an "inspired by a song" challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks. I'm also entering this for an "Add texture" challenge over at ScrapbookerPhD - Wish me luck.
And now, it's the turn of the Friday Funny, this week brought to you by ScrappyJacky - thanks matey - to the rest of you .... close your mouths you're catching flies!!! Can you BELIEVE some of these?!?!?!
These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place.
ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
WITNESS: He said, 'Where am I, Cathy?'
ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
WITNESS: My name is Susan!
ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?

WITNESS: No, I just lie there.
ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?
WITNESS: July 18th.
ATTORNEY: What year?
WITNESS: Every year.
ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?
WITNESS: Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can't remember which.
ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?
WITNESS: Forty-five years.
ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
WITNESS: I forget..
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?
ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?
ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?
WITNESS: He's 20, much like your IQ.
ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
WITNESS: Are you shitting me?
ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?
WITNESS: Getting laid
ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?
ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?
WITNESS: Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?
ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death..
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
WITNESS: Take a guess.
ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard
ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?
WITNESS: Unless the Circus was in town I'm going with male.
ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.
ATTORNEY: Doctor , how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
WITNESS: All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.
ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 PM
ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS: If not, he was by the time I finished.
ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
WITNESS: Are you qualified to ask that question?
And last, but by no means least:
ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practising law.
