Hi Everyone....Thanks for dropping by your visits are so appreciated. For those of you who read my previous post you will know that last weekend I planned to craft but had lost my mojo.....was feeling tired.
I decided to watch crafty DVD's by none other than Tim Holtz. It had been some time since I viewed them and I remember purchasing them way back in 2005 and loving the outcome of the Distress embossing powders and Distress Inks.
Below you will see a piece that I made to send to my crafty friend Buttons, using some of Tim's techniques that I had not used in some time.
I created the background below using Tim's techniques. You can see the water droplets on the top of the card. As I did not have a craft iron I used a small travel iron, purchased many years ago and never used !!!
Once dried I blended some vintage photo Distress ink and matted on to some card
Below you can see the brushless watercolour images, the lighter being second generation. (I used various Adirondack Inks on the stamp)
I then die cut Tim's new Sizzix Washer Border, inking it with Peacock Feathers DI and a smidgeon of Vintage Photo DI on the edges.
The brushless watercolour image from Tim's Stampers Anonymous Classics ( SCF001) was torn around the edges then inked with a combination of Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean DI's
To complete the look I matted the stamped image on to blue card, distress with Tonic Studios Paper Distresser and inked with Salty Ocean DI.
I added some twine and a die cut butterfly, which I had rusted earlier, then some chipboard letter, painted with Tim's new Distress Paints. I then rubbed some area of the project, including the letters with Treasure Gold wax in White Fire and Sapphire.
Over at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog the theme is 'Layer it on and Share a Word'., which this piece meets.
I am also entering the 'Anything Goes' over at Through The Craft Room Door challenge blog.
Take care and catch up soon. Be sure and leave a comment and I will get back to you.
