All set for the next batch? With any luck, I'm keeping up with the creating of these. Hah!
And when I checked to see if this had posted... it hadn't. So, by now I can say I'm not keeping up and I have a few more posts coming your way.
Day 3 - Tim Holtz style: Listen and Plaid Bird
original post. Now, while this should have been fast, I labored over the plaids. It took ages for me to get something that didn't look like a muddy mess or that I didn't mess up when I was stamping. I did this so many times, I was plaiding in my sleep! But I loved the results.
When I looked for the perfect Santa stamp for my tag, I only had one that was a polymer / clear stamp. I found it didn't want to stamp easily on the glossy cardstock (hence the multiple repeats). So, I took a different approach and did this gorgeous chickadee image. One thing I did different from Tim's tags was to omit the stamped white flecks and add the opaque white pen ink as highlights to my images. I love the pop of white against the plaids. And doesn't the teal plaid remind you of a comfy blanket or shirt? Also, one of the things that I think was a cool addition to my plaid was a "stripe" of gold mixative. It looks so festive in real life.
Day 3 - the CLASSroom: Botanical Elegance
HERE. I didn't have the right supplies to copy hers, but I had a lot of fun trying! My deer is a clear accent die-cut, but worked perfectly. Lisa had also used a Heidi Swapp paper that is pre-embossed. I used a cuttlebug folder, embossed and carefully inked with a wash to give a similar effect.
Thanks for visiting!
