It's lovely to see you here again and I hope you are enjoying the fabulous inspiration over on the blog at A Vintage Journey. The Creative Guides have produced the most amazing projects and I am so thrilled to be here with this challenge theme, which is 'Dies and Distress'.
As mentioned previously, although we are a Tim Holtz inspired challenge you do not have to use Tim Holtz products to enter, you just have to ensure that the style is vintage, grunge, retro or shabby chic and you inform which of Tim's styles/techniques or products have inspired you.
Our regular sponsor is Country View Crafts and the challenge Winner will receive a gift voucher to spend in their online store. We also have a Pinworthy Badge for the Top 3 projects.
I recently purchased one of Tim's blank Burlap Panel's and decided to challenge myself to alter it.
You can see the finished project below, but I shall provide some other photographs/details as to how I achieved it.
( I used Broken China Distress Paint, followed by a spritz of Dylusions in Melted Chocolate for a grungy look) Another recent purchase was Tim Holtz New Sizzix Die, Artful Arrows, which were blended with Rusty Hinge Distress ink. Some treasure gold wax was applied to the textured elements.
