Hi Everyone and a huge welcome to new followers x
I had hoped to craft yesterday but could not find my mojo so i watched Tim Holtz's DVD's, which I have had forever. An Altered Journey is the first one and then The Journey Continues........
They are amazing DVD's..........full of techniques, tips and inspiration. I also enjoyed the bloopers too !!
So here I am today.......playing with some of Tim's latest release dies and full of inspiration. This piece was made with the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge in mind. For this challenge you have to create 'Something Messy'.
The piece below is on a canvas board, which I inked with distress inks. I also stamped one of Tim's floral images and clear embossed it, which you can just see on the left.
I took a piece of cardboard, stripping it here and there, then blended it with distress inks.
I had some calico fabric and after ageing with DI's I then stamped the dragonfly, from Stampers Anonymous TH Classics, using Tim's new Distress Paint in Vintage Photo.........I know I am obsessed with Vintage Photo !!!! Tim's paints were purchased from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and as a customer's of Linda's online shop you are able to participate in the Sunday Share.
I took Tim's new 'Stacked Artful Words' die and The Movers and Shapers Mini Clipboard die, rusted with CRafty Notions Acrylic Wax and Rusting Powder, which you spray with vinegar to activate.
You can see the finished rusting process below. I also used glossy accents in a bottle cap to make an embellishment that I placed on top of the bingo card. The Bingo card and paper inserted in the bottle cap are from Tim's Ideaology Paperstash, Lost and Found.
Some lace, aged with distress inks, was also adhered at the top side of the cardboard and you can just about see it in the picture below.
The photograph above is a close up of the Vintage Photo Distress Paint stamped on to the fabric.
Below you can see that I used alcohol inks on the metal clipboard on top of the Bingo Card, matted on to some cardboard. I also attached a small heart, which is attached with ideaology rings.
