Tim Holtz Inspiration-IC600

This weeks Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge (IC600) hosted by Audrie (girlgeek101) was impossible to miss....Tim Holtz Inspiration Board by Maria!!

I was inspired by this beautiful Tag by Tracey from 2013,  but still Trendy!


Here is my Tag Inspired by Tracey's tag on Pinterest!



Stencil layering on tags is so much fun.  I started with a Ranger #8 Manila Tag.  Covered with Goldens Gesso white paint.  When dry I used my T.H. Cargo (letters) stencil and painted with white acrylic paint,  which acted as a resist. Let dry.

I then sponged my Distress Inks using my blending tool : Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick, Ripe persimmon, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries.

Then more stencil layering.  I used Ranger Dylusions (diamonds) and 2 borrowed TCW stencils..heart and sunburst.  

Next I stamped STAMPlorations "Scribbly Splattery Grunge" stamp set (numbers and letters) and a ret. SU text using Archival black ink.  Sponged more Distress ink on the edge of tag.

Then I die cut Tim Holtz Wildflower Dies using SU Thick Whisper White CS and attached with SU fine tip glue pen and weighted down with a large acrylic block to dry.  

I just got my new STAMPlorations "Trendy Feathers 2" stamp set and stamped 3 of the sentiments using my MISTI.  Added SU linen thread and W. White Seam Binding Ribbon...and Done!

I love how the color combo turned out and how the white wildflowers pop.  Enjoy and I hope you can go to Audrie's  Inspiration Challenge post to see the full gallery.  Also a beautiful personal video of Tim.

What a wonderful job of layering those stencils, Nancy! Love, love, love the colors! (I must write them down for future sponging reference.) The white die cut wild flowers show beautifully! I may have to put them on my list!
