Men and Crimpers!

Simon Says Stamp and Show is wanting "Men Only" and Gingersnap Creations GC118 has us using our crimpers!  BTW, I did not have a crimper and had been thinking about one, so used a Michael's 50% off coupon!  What an excuse, but these are fun and sure gets the little brain going!  All stamps are from Artistic Outpost and I used Apothecary which is new and Ephemeral Backgrounds.
I first stamped the bottle with Stampin Up Craft Black, clear embossed and then cut it out.  I actually cut out a second bottle for support.  A Spellbinders die was used to cut out the center for my picture placement.  The pharmacist was stamped using Black Stazon Ink, he was masked and the wording was colored using DI Brushed Corduroy, along with the bottle cork!  The RX was stamped used Stazon Timber Brown, cut out and distressed with Forest Moss.  The Rx label was stamped with Brushed Corduroy and Liquid Luck with Forest Moss, as was Apothecary, which along the Rx and 10c was stamped on Newspaper Print!  On the black background, I crimped, flattened and then stamped the Antique Ledger in Stampin Up Craft White.

I also did some curling of the edges, which is a technique from the Technique Junkies.  If you are interested in a chance to win a ONE YEAR ONLINE SUBSCRIPTION, please click on the sidebar link and leave a comment.

Hmmm. I've never stamped AFTER I crimped, and I like the effect. It's nice to see a tag for a guy, and it's a great one. I have to look at that stamp set.
