Happy New Year Everybody!!!
And if it's January 1, then it's a new challenge over at the Country View Challenges. I bet, you will love the theme: Anything goes.
So for our new challenge, I made a new year card with Tim Holtz stamps and dies.
Here is my tutorial.
First I cut out a rectangle from a mixed media paper and then I painted turquoise with Spa Blue (DecoArt). The first layer was painted with a brush but the second one was added with a sponge with tapping movement.
I painted gold the cut-outs and here one layer was enough.
I inked all the edges (the gold and turquoise as well) with Ranger Archival Potting Soil.
I spattered with brown paint the surface of the turquoise card and after drying I put a layer of Ranger Distress Collage Medium (Matte).
I used Tim's Stamping Tool to stamp the crazy dog and hat and then coloured them with Ranger Distress markers.
I stamped the text and embossed with gold.
I put my card together and for this I used 4 different adhesives: Pritt Stift, Rayher paper glue, double sided tape adhesive and foam adhesive.
What I used:
Sizzix Bigz Die, Weathered Clock by Tim Holtz (657190)
Sizzix Bigz Die, Crescent Moon&Stars by Tim Holtz (658716)
Sizzix Thinlits Die, Labels by Tim Holtz (660060)
