Lynne ForsytheTracy is on her travels this week and by hot air balloon too from the new Tim Holtz Remnants stamps, set against a background created adding Tim Holtz Nostalgic Tissue Tape; one layer of Claudine Hellmuth Studio Classic Teal paint, random layers of Vaseline (petroleum jelly) and then a top coat of Claudine Hellmuth's Traditional Tan paint to create a unique background. Add into the mix the handsome gentleman from Tim's Steampunk set and a little Idea-ology Sprocket Gears and Light Bulb.
Lynne created her background using Dyan Reaveley's ~ Around the Edge stamps. A bit of white and clear UTEE accented with Forever Green Perfect Pearls. To finish off her diecut tag, she inked up some diecut flowers with Distress Stains and misted them with various Perfect Pearl Mists!!
A little psychedelic retro-grunge! Sarah pounded Kraft Glassine Paper with Picket Fence and Pool Alcohol Inks before embossing with Retro circles and getting inky with Walnut Stain and her new Tim stamps. Random stitching and a Trinket pin finish off this funky card!
Candy loves Dyan Reaveley's products and features them in her first ever Art Journal pages! She created her backgrounds using various Distress Reinker colors and water in a Mini Mister. She also added texture by stamping with Studio Paints. Then the real fun began as Candy randomly stamped images from Dyan's fabulous stamps sets. The detail work was done using Tim Holtz incredible new Distress Markers.
Beginning with a simple tag and Ranger's metal foil tape sheets, Nancy embossed a background with a Cuttlebug Script embossing folder and Spellbinders Parisian Accents. After embossing, she used the Vintaj patinas and painted over the embossed metal, thinning the patina out with the glaze. Dark accents were added along the tag edges with alcohol ink before adding the stamped & embossed Graphic 45 image.
It's all about the BACKGROUNDS! Terry had that thought in mind when she made her Easter Spool. Lots of Vintage Photo, Crackle and Distress Crackle Paint were used. The background of the spool are made with Tissue Tape and the Easter Elements Bigz Dies from Tim Holtz.
Ellen created a handmade background with Dylusions sprays and stencils, some white gesso, and then added Dylusions stamps over the top with Ranger's new specialty stamping paper, accented with distress markers, perfect pearls, some colored hemp twine and a white pen.
Dan opted to make Claudine Hellmuth's Studio paints his focus for this challenge. Other products he used included the Royal Script stamp set and Paper Artsy's Man with Moustache stamp Walnut Stain distress ink and a black Versafine Onyx Black ink pad.
My background was made using Wild Honey Distress Stain; Dylusions Ink Sprays and then loads of background stamping with lots of Tim Holtz Ultimate Grunge and Pyschedelic Grunge sheets. I often start on A4 size and then chop down to the size I want. This week I have opted for ATC's and I got all funky with Dylusions Stamps.Simon Says Stamp is once again giving away a $50 gift voucher!
