Here's my entry for Tim Holtz's Tattered Floral challenge and the numbers challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show. I used lots of my favorite stamps, stencils and inks, and cut 40 flowers using the smallest of the four flowers on the die:
My Tonic pick is a great piercer for adding the brads:
I used an Idea-ology clock, gears, and spinners, along with trinket pins and Glossy Accents to seal in some tiny JB stickers:
Three of Tim's funky keys worked for my tail:
Another peek at the flowers:
And the main body of the kite:
I was in the mood for kites and warm weather because it's been a long winter and I'm ready for Spring. Schools are closed today because 6-10" more snow is forecast. Here's my view at the moment:
Hope you are safe and warm, wherever you are. Thanks for the visit!
Before I say a word about the project, I want to say thank you to all of you who have shared videos on your blogs and on YouTube in the past. What a learning curve this was... I had no idea (none!) how time consuming it is and how much editing is required. Next time I make one it will be much shorter and I'll be wearing a good microphone.
Okay, now... on to the good stuff! I made this canvas for Eclectic Paperie using Dylusions Ink Sprays, one of my favorite Dina Wakley stamps, lots of stencils, inks, paint, washi tape, Prima flowers, and a few other goodies.
I have a new article up at Unruly Paper Arts using some of my favorite Tim Holtz stamps and lots of wonderful stencils. I started by making a stamped/stenciled masterboard on Ranger Manila Card stock, and then cut six ATCs from it using the Sizzix ATC die:
Here's how it opens up:
I used Tim's Distress Stains to dye my ribbon to match the ink colors I used.
The March issue of Unruly Paper Arts is dedicated to Artist Trading Cards... it's called the ATC Extravaganza Issue. I'm submitting this layout for Reader Art Quest #2, which calls for an ATC attached to a project. The other challenge this month, Reader Art Quest #1, calls for an ATC house. Both challenges are open through March 25th.
I've made my layout using black cardstock, 7 Gypsies Tissue tape, a Tim Holtz ATC sized background stamp, and some small accent stamps from Technique Tuesday. I've also used Tim's Idea-ology spinners on some watch faces I inked with distress ink.
I coated the entire ATC with embossing powder and heat set it, as well as the little flags I made out of tape to show my son's ages in these pics. Hope you'll visit Unruly Paper Arts and join in one or both of the Reader Art Quests.
I'll be back on Monday with an ATC mini-album that I made for the March issue as well. Thanks for the visit!
