Hello and welcome,
Today I am sharing a journal page I created for A Vintage Journeys Challenge #9 Nikki chose a theme to use every stamp in a set. Here is the link for Vintage Journey so you can check out all the amazing pieces that have already been created.... http://www.vintagejourney.com/2014/06/challenge-9-use-every-stamp-in-set.html
Of course there is always great inspiration over on Tim Holtz blog too......http://timholtz.com/
The sponsor for this challenge is: Country View Crafts offering a 10 pound voucher to the winner......http://www.countryviewcrafts.co.uk/
My Tim Influence for this piece came from this amazing set of stamps called Pen & Pencil. I just love this man with the birdcage on his head, and the amazing sketch of the Clock. I created a bit of a tourist scene.
On this piece today I used Picket Fence Distress Paint once, heat set it, then repeated again. Then I swiped Peacock Feathers Distress Stain, sprayed with some water then heat set. Next I added some Distress Stain Faded Jeans which I also sprayed with water and heat set.
I added Vintage Photo distress ink around the edges.
I embossed some white card stock with Tim's Cart'e Post embossing folder which I then ripped up into different size pieces. On one piece I stamped the Birdcage man with black archival ink, and used my embossing pen to go over the writing and heat embossed it with Queens Gold embossing powder by Ranger.
On the other piece I embossed using Queens Gold and Fine Black embossing powders.
I stamped the bike using black archival ink and fussy cut it out. I then turned the bike around to face the other way and re stamped the wheels.
The umbrella man has been die cut with Tim's Umbrella Man die x 3, once with white card stock and twice out of grunge paper to make him pop out a bit more. He was colored with swiping the Black Soot and Vintage Photo pads across it. The umbrella was stamped with the ticket number stamp in the set and has Festive Berries distress ink, once again just by swiping the pad across it.
The ticket paper is from Tim's paper collection and some have been added to the Hot Air Balloon using black cotton.
The Airplane and Hot Air Balloon are Tim's rub-on's.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
