I’ve finally had a chance to play along with the challenges at Summer of Creative Chemistry with Tim Holtz over at Online Card Classes.
This week, participants were challenged to create with Perfect Pearls and Distress Inks and Stains.
Here’s my tag using Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls over a stamped Distress Ink background.
I stamped the background (Tim Holtz’s Seasonal Catalog 1) with a variety of Distress Inks onto a manila tag to which I’d earlier applied (and dried) Antique Linen Distress Stain.
Once stamped, I brushed on the Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold. After applying the Perfect Pearls, I added Distress Inks to the edges. The Perfect Pearls are brushed away to some extent on the edges.
I die cut the Umbrella Man from Kraft-Core cardstock and added a Tim Holtz Word Band, in lieu of any sentiment. I don’t have any Tim Holtz Halloween dies, but I figured that the Umbrella Man was “curious” about the Halloween items in the background.
It was a lot of fun (albeit outside of my comfort zone) to delve into a more layered project!
