Challenge 2, Tim Holtz….

Hi Everyone,

Challenge 2 under my belt which is Faux Patina, A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.  2, page 58 given to us by the lovely people at Studio L3.  Sponsoring us this week is Angie Lentz, a fab designer of all things arty.

This week I was inspired by a magazine article photo I saw whilst waiting at the dentist.  I took a picture of the article and have given it my own interpretation. (tag)
If you are anything like me you have loads of crafty bits waiting in the wings to use.  My craft metal and little metal embellishments were shouting from the rooftops -use me, use me!! so on the way to the shop I was looking at anything metal.  Obviously I had to use Tim Holtz stuff and I decided to do a tag and ATC (artist trading card) which I haven’t done in ages.  If nothing else these challenges are certainly making me think out of the box and trying stuff long lost in the caverns of my mind!  Oh I’m going all light headed – thinking too much!!  Anyway here are my samples and what I used, if you want to know the technique, you’ll have to buy the book.
Materials used:
  • Cuttlebug dotty embossing folder with a tag
  • Different pieces of card stock cut as mountains and hills
  • Black soot distress ink to go around the edges of the hills and mountains
  • Spiced marmalade and tea dye distress ink for the background
  • Craft metal
  • 2 x metal coggs
  • 1 x metal heart
  • Tim Holtz stamps
  • Alcohol inks
1. Put the tag together as in the diagram on the right.
2. Use the patina effect on a piece of craft metal
3. Stamp the vehicle onto the patina effect and cut out
4. Use an embossing tool to build out the windows and wheel arches and door of the vehicle.
5. Fill the back of the metal with polyfilla light to stop the embossed parts being punched back in.
6. Attach to tag.
Use the same effect with different coloured alcohol inks for the numbers ATC.
