Just finished my July Tim Holtz tag for 12 tags of 2014. This one was really fun as we made our own sand. I didn’t have the Antique Linen Glitter so I made my own with the clear dry glitter and antique linen reinker. You can make all the colors of distress glitter by adding a few drops of the reinker. The shards aren’t as big, but at least you can have lots of colors. To make sand, mix UTEE, glitter, distress embossing powder in Frayed Burlap and Black soot, then add glossy accepts to moisten. Apply glossing accents to the surface, then press sand into it and let dry. The sea horses were also really fun to make. All the directions are on Tim’s blog and he even gives a 10 percent discount for supplies. Now go and have some fun!
This is the final card from the elements that are left from the June Simon Says Stamp Kit. The base is transparent molding paste over a Dylusions stencil. The chevron die is the new Tim Holtz called “frameworks” cut from the kit card stock. The wood veneer leaf from the kit is gold embossed. The frame is a left over from an old SSS Kit and painted with crackle paint also from Tim Holtz. The sentiment stamped with Hero Arts Shadow Ink in soft vanilla using the flower circle stamp over the kit sentiment in Versafine. The card is finished with some washi tape and Tim Holtz element letters. Card is entered in the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge.
