After much deliberation, Tracy decided that her favourite stamp of the moment is the BALLOON stamp from Tim's Remnants set. Add into the mix an inky background using Distress Stains along with embellishments in the form of Chitchat Stickers, Word Band and Mini Paper Clips.
Ellen didn't have to think long to find her favorite stamp.. the leafy vine from Dylusions! So she created a Dylusions style jumbo tag. First an ink spray background, stencils next, then stamps, perfect pearls paint (mix powdered pearls with water), Ranger water brush, and a white pen.
Lynne loves using large stamps, like Cling Dots and Flower Art, as "white noise" in the background of her greeting cards. She split a Mini Burlap Rectangle Tag and spritzed it with Frost, Slate and Indian Corn Tattered Angels. She loved "tearing up" the edges of her card with the Distrezz It All. She finished it off with the Adage Ticket held with a Mini Clothespin.
Candy's favorite stamp right now has to be Tim Holtz' Remnants stamp set. Candy has created a box, reminiscent of an old wind up toy, using a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket to create a funny man soaring from her dimensional hot air balloon colored with a Barn Door Distress Marker. Papers from the Weekend Market 6x6 Paper Pad line the interior and a Tim Holtz Clock Key creates the wind up effect.
Terry made some Decorative Pot Plant Labels for her Mother and Mother in Law. She used her favourite stamp from The Wendy Vecchi, Just Flutterby Butterfly. She used Distress Reinkers to colour them, Distress inks for the borders and Distress Stains were used for the background. On top she worked with Distress Rock Candy and a few Paper Rosettes. The sentiments are from The Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers.
One of the most inked stamps in Sarah's collection must be Tim's Papillon butterflies so she created a grungy, shabby hanging with metal elements. She white-washed Kraft Resist Paper Stash with Picket Fence Distress Stain before stamping and cutting lots of Grungepaper butterflies...finishing with an Idea-ology Metal Word Band.
Of all of Tim Holtz's stamps, the David head is definitely Dan's favourite. He feels it's such a versatile stamp that can be used in so many ways and he's given David a dinstinctly 70s look on this card! He was stamped on white, kraft and brown cardstock and then combined from parts of each. In addition to the School Desk and Artful Artifacts stamp sets, Dan used the Destinations card stack, Memento Black ink pad and Walnut Stain distress ink.Linda Elbourne
I tried really hard to come up with just ONE favourite but I failed ... so my Favourite is Wendy Vecchi's butterfly from the Botanical Art sheet ... I have a whole list of Dylusions Stamps which I also LOVE ... so I have represented those by using the Dylusions Sprays for my vibrant backgrounds.
it's a really good idea for this challengeReplyDelete
