Hi Everyone.............here we are with another fabulous challenge over at A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog. As the host of this challenge I decided to go with the theme of Tic Tac Toe and you can find the details below:
With so many Tim Holtz/Ranger products as well as other similar products, we would like you to choose at least three items from the grid below, incorporating them in your entries/projects. You can choose items horizontally/vertically or diagonally, it's your decision. One more thing........ can you please, please include the name of the items you are using within your post, not just in the link to the challenge.
|Idea-ology or any metal embellishment||Sprays||Ribbon/twine|
|Foil tape||Texture fades||Stains|
For my project, which is an 8 by 8 card, I chose Tim Holtz Metal Embellishments, Sprays and Ribbon.
You can see the Idea-Ology Ribbon Reel, Ornate Frame, sprayed with Vintage Photo Distress Stain and metal wings/clock below.
I also used Tim's Distress Photo Tinting technique on his found relatives photograph, which you can find in his book Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 3. ( page 41)
I apologise for the lack of a step by step, but I was in a bit of a rush with this one!!! Should there be anything you would like to know please contact me by using the button on the sidebar.
You can see some kraft glassine below, which was scrunched and then inked with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. A left over piece of muslin creates some further texture and interest. The metal pieces are all from Tim's Idea-Ology range. Love the wishbone xx
The TH Walflower Stash papers were adhered to the back, front and insides of this card after being distressed with Tim Holtz Distressing tool and then inked with Vintage Photo and Walnut stain. Tim Holtz new stencils, Flourish and Lace, were placed on the corner of the Wallflower Papers and then inked with Salty Ocean Distress Ink. You can also see that I used some of Tim's Ephemera pieces too i.e the ticket behind the metal Idea-Ology pieces. ( see below)
Tim Holtz Sizzix Ornate Frame die was placed over grungepaper and cut using my BigShot, then sprayed with Vintage Photo Distress stains. The colour is really intense and looks amazing in real life :-)
You can also see more detail of the Distress photo tinting and lip colour, using Distress Markers.
Tissue tape, muslin , Ribbon Reel and Idea-Ology metal number are visible below
