Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 April


My take on the Tim Holtz April Tag! I am posting two pics because I added some watercolor shimmer paint to my flowers that is seen easier in the second pic.

CC3 Challenge #26

Yet another fun challenge based off the wonderful Tim Holtz techniques showcased in his book  A Compendium of Curiosities!
CC3 #26

I used the following Distress Inks:
Tumbled Glass
Walnut Stain
Vintage Photo
Antique Linen
Peacock Feathers- combined with water and Tumbled Glass to get that lighter transparent blue.
Other Products Used: Glossy Accents, Pearl embellies from stash, Recollections paper florals, stencil and various stamps.
This was such a fun challenge and I absolutely love the way this turned out!!

Challenge 26 is all about technique: Smudge Stamping. This is such a classic “Tim Look,” and it’s an easy and quick way to grunge up any project. Open up your copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 to page 42 and get the deets.

The Funkie Junkie Boutique is back to sponsor Challenge 26, and the delightful Linda Coughlin, THE Funkie Junkie, has a fabulous $25 shopping spree to one very lucky CC3Cer! For a chance to win that shopping spree, link your project here and link to The Funkie Junkie Boutique in your blog post!
I decided it does suit the Frilly and Funkie challenge as well so I have now entered there as well because I really love this tag!

So many great products here to win! Keeping my fingers crossed for sure!!

CC3 Challenge #25

My card for this challenge is quite the mixed bag. I used several parts from the dies, several colors of distressing ink, some pretty metal embellies, as well as an embossing folder and some stamped embossing action to accent! Fun Project and I really was pleased with the results too!
