Wishing you all the very best for New Year 2016 xx
It's hard to believe that it's time for a new challenge over at A Vintage Journey. Our host is the uber talented Brenda Brown, who has chosen the theme of "Vintage Travel and Luggage"
See below for Brenda's challenge details:
Let your imagination carry you back to the bygone eras, setting off on an exciting journey for the New Year. Keeping it in Tim's style, we would love to see what item of luggage or mode of transport you would use on your journey, eg - think hand luggage, travel trunks, hat boxes, hot air balloons, ships and trains.
And here is my project, which is an 8"x8" easel card made for a 60th celebration.
I have used two background papers, which were distressed around the edges, then inked and layered on to the easel card.
Everything, with the exception of the Penny Farthing bike, which is a Marianne die, is stamped using a variety of Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Stamp Sets.
One of the background stamps from Tim's Parisienne set was stamped on to vellum, the edges torn and inked for a real vintage feel.
The stamps were coloured using Distress Inks or Distress Markers as a watercolour. I then played about with the layout until I was satisfied with the outcome.
The word Celebrate was stamped in Versamark Embossing Ink then some gold embossing powder was applied, excess removed, then heat set.
The card was personalised after taking these photographs and the recipient absolutely loved it !!!
We look forward to viewing your fabulous entries and remember there is always a randomly drawn prize of £20 to spend at Country View Crafts, who have an amazing stock of Tim Holtz products, with free postage for those resident in the UK.
