Curiosity Tag

Hello: Yep the last day to turn stuff in. I'm kinda on a roll. So this tag is for the Tim Holtz 12 tags for 2014 August. My goal is to have September done by the 15th. We'll see. I kinda mixed what I think is a combo of summer/fall colors. Even though this was last minute I loved these techniques. I used Barn Red, Peeled Paint, Peacock feathers, Spiced Marmalade, and Brushed Corduroy distressed stain makes up the background color. I used the measured, Latticework, and Holiday Knit stencil's with the texture paste. I stamped with the Tiny Things set, the quill stamp from The Chemist set, and The brick stamp is from Gabrielle Pollacco . Idea-ology- Tissue tape, gears, nub and the Discoveries word band. Distress embossing powder- peeled paint and milled lavender. I kinda decided I wanted more brown tones so I dabbed some gathered twigs distressed paint. I hope you like it!!

Craft Christmas Card

Hi All: Here I am waiting until the last minute. I made a large christmas card with my Holiday Joy by Tim Holtz Alterations. I sramped and cut out 3 each of the pine trees and deers. I colored them using my distress pens gathered twigs, vintage photo, and Forest moss. I put glossy accents on the antlers, and sprayed the whole thing with my new favorite Perfect Pearls mist Biscotti. I used Festive berries, Evergreen bough, and Picketed fence stain on the background. I then glopped on gesso for the snow effect. For the word Joy is I used the Festive Berries distress marker. For the background I used 2 craft tags and a smaller manila tag which I colored using Festive berries stain. I'm entering this in the the CC3C #9( This event brings out your creativeness!!
