TIO#87 - Project Tim Holtz

The challenge this week on Dragon's Dream tag it on challenge blog is Project Tim Holtz, set by our leader Frankie. I have purchased a couple of the mini series of TH stamps recently so decided, of course, that I would use those.

I decided to opt for the TH dabber resist technique, so I fished out the only white I had which is, in actual fact, pearls, and repeat stamped the flourish from one of the said sets. I left this to dry then, as I don't have any of the stains - yet, I used a glimmer mist in Cherry Blossom and a cosmic shimmer mist in Ocean Sunlight on my tag. I then edged it with tattered rose and broken china distress inks. I stamped a couple of images using the same inks, then over-stamped in black stazon. I stamped umbrella man in black versacolour then embossed in black. I then mounted him on the wire so he is high wire walking. I distressed the edges using the TH paper distresser, then edged in black stazon.

The vintage seam binding has been coloured using the same distress inks, then stamped in black stazon using the harlequin design. I added the ribbon then finaly I added the ball chain with the token which says "believe".

I hope you approve of my take on a TH project. Must go the steamer has just pinged!

Please do pop over to the TIO challenge blog and check out the fabulous entries by my design team buddies. They really do produce some amazing work. Then give it a go - show us what you can come up with. We love to see your entries and we try to comment on each one. Just remember to use at least one real stamp in your creation.

Bye for now. Thanks for dropping by. I love to read your comments.
