I had quite a busy week with picking my winner for the 'Shabby Chic' Challenge, setting another Challenge, making the next inspirational piece for this Challenge and now I have to choose a winner for my 'Embellished Frame' Challenge... Confused yet?
Don't worry I have it all under control, one thing I am really good at and that is organising.
Anyway to the matter at hand and that is this weeks Challenge at' Our Creative Corner. 'The Hostess this week is none other than the honourable and illustrious, Linda Coughlin-The Funkie Junkie, and the theme is
'Show us your favourite Tim Holtz Technique'.
I know many worship the ground this man walks on, unfortunately I am not one of them!
oops.... I had better remove myself from this subject before I offend.
My inspirational piece for you to drool over and pass comment on then is a set of tags that I placed on a board- to inspire me when I am uninspired.
I used the paint resist technique, which is dabbing white acrylic paint directly onto your chosen stamp, then stamp onto your CS.
When the paint is dry, apply chosen distress ink over the top in a circular motion.
I misted water over the top of the image and wiped off to reveal the White painted flourish.
I now had a substrate to work on, so it was time to have some fun, I placed a crafty individuals stamped image in the heart on top first, then added the burlap, a trinket, button and flower (bottom left) it is hardly noticeable in this photo.
The word Inspire was cut on the cricut and glued in place.
You can just see the White paint resist on this Tag, I have embellished with a cuttlebug butterfly die-cut, a few cut-out flowers which I covered in some fine net, and lace, although you cannot see in the photo but I sprayed biscotti perfect pearls all over.
This one is my favourite, I love this tulip from the ODBD.
It is a corner stamp but I only used the one Tuilp. The White paint resist technique is more noticeable here.
The fence die-cut has been embossed with distress powders to make it look old and weathered.
If you look closely you will see some doodling at the side. it is the squiggly bits in Black and White pen.
Hop over to Our Creative Corner and join in the fun, and if you want to see some more techniques click onto any of the Dt cards that are up for your inspiration.
