SOS Challenge #160 – Can’t Put it Down

Standard

The challenge at Shopping Our Stash this week is perfect for me. #160 is Can’t Put it Down (or away). I’ve been alternating between making cards using the Tim Holtz 12 Months of Tags June technique or using my new Scripty Thanks die from Lawn Fawn.

Today’s card uses the reverse stenciling technique by Mr. Holtz.

I love that this ends up like you’re in a forest, looking up at the trees.

I <3 Tim Holtz

I ❤ Tim Holtz, seriously. I love his style – that eclectic vintage look is truly fab.

I’ve had Distress Inks for a year or so and use them more than any other. After referring to his 12 Months of Tags June post several times in the past few weeks. I decided that I had to get the mini versions of the stamp pads. The first six sets just arrived yesterday.

I decided to break in some of the new inks today with the Honeycomb THS005 stencil.

First, I simply stamped directly onto the stencil with the pads in a rainbow pattern. I was just trying to get some of the color on the paper, not the actual pattern of the stencil. This was the result.

Then I spritzed the stencil with water and put it ink side down on another sheet of cardstock. The result is gaw-juss!

The challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash is #157 – Color My World – use your favorite color. This is my second card.

My favorite color is black which pairs really well with my favorite color combo which is rainbow.

I also used a Tim Holtz stencil & the technique that he used in his 12 Months of Tags – June post.

SOS #157 – Color My World

Standard

The challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash is #157 – Color My World – use your favorite color.

My favorite color is black which pairs really well with my favorite color combo which is rainbow.

Along with the Lawn Fawn sets that I bought this weekend, I also bought some Tim Holtz stencils.  I realized I had everything I needed to to try the technique that Tim used on his 12 Months of Tags – June. Well, everything but a water spritzer, but then I remembered the “sea salt texturizing spray” that I received in one of those “get a box of random stuff every month” things that I won a subscription to. I ran upstairs, dumped the spray, rinsed it out, got the spritzer clean et voila, a lovely no cost to me water spritzer.

Here’s the result. You can’t tell from the picture but the tag is popped with dimensional adhesive.
