This week at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge use... a Lord Tim of Holtz Technique!
I really like Tim's Rusted Grunge Technique. I used it on the key hole I cut from some grunge paper with the Hardware Findings die.
I made this clock for Jeff for Christmas. I made it more manly by using photos of our dogs instead of flowers to embellish it. The clock hardware was gold and I recolored it with silver alcohol ink to match the other metal on it.
I used Pine Needles Distress Ink to die the fabric. The "branches" were cut out from the Tattered Leaves die. I had a small piece of green fabric left over from my Halloween costume so some of the branches were cut from that to give a 2 toned color. I really like how they turned out!!
I had fun making this tag! I had the metal foliage and some of the inks, otherwise I found some similar items from my stash. The Santa is from Graphics Fairy that I printed onto cardstock. I found the sheet music free online and printed it onto cardstock also.
I had some of the stuff Tim used on his tag. I had the distress ink on the tag. I didn't have the house so I made my own and then ran it through the Squares Sizzix Impression Plate to give it texture. I had the Tim Holtz fence die, and covered the grungepaper with Picket Fence Crackle Paint.
I didn't have a wreath, so I made one with the leaves from the bird/branch punch from stamping up, added some Christmas Red Stickles and a bow. I cut the "tree" from a bush in my yard, added Star Dust Stickles and some white glitter ink to it. The ribbon is Martha Stewart.
This is my tag for day 2:
I didn't have anything Tim used! I used Faded Jeans, Barn Door, Peeled Paint and Broken China distress inks. The ribbon is Martha Stewart. The stamp is the only one I had that had a evergreen branch on it. I like how it turned out.
Here is day 3:
I had to improvise on this one too. The branch stamp is a Tim Holtz one, I didn't have the Tree stamp he used. The bird is a punch from Stampin Up. I used Barn Door, Pine Needles, Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint Distress Inks. I used Tim's Tattered Florals Sizzix Die to made my flower. The brad is Stampin Up.
Day 4 Tag:
I didn't have the stuff Tim used, but I found some similar items. I used a oval Fragments piece and tried the tutorial he had on his blog today. I used the alcohol inks first, and then stamped the snowflakes with black Stazon. I couldn't get the Stazon to blot off! Tim used Archival Ink, and I didn't have that so I thought I'd try with the Stazon. Oh well, I like how it turned out anyway. I had some Christmas print cardstock that had a Santa on it so I used that. The swirl is a Tim Holtz stamp. I used some Broken China Distress Stickles on the bottom.
Thanks for looking!!
