I’m hooked on Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas…. Here are some more creations…
I have retouched the Joy tag. (put veins in the holly leaves. Much better)
And my fav tag again the snowman….
things I’ve re-adapted:
I had no masks that Tim used so I cut out my own with Masking Magic. Its sticky/repositional on one side and clear. Just like Tims masks. I just re-drew similar designs on the Masking Magic and made my own masks.
I used normal ink pads from Whispers 30 stamp pad set. I haven’t got any Distress inks.
I also use Artists Acrylic paint instead of paint dabbers – something from my painting days.
In spite of appearance I don’t have any grunge board either so I hand cut out all my shapes/stamped images from Cerial packet cardboard.
If you need any tips on doing stuff from Tim Holtz but haven’t got the supplies like he does. Then ask me. I’m sure I’ll be able to tell you what you can utilize in the above projects.
So far the only thing I rushed out and bought was the Music Score stamp. I used alot from my craft supplies already….. as mentioned above. I just couldn’t carve one of those out of Lino. Too fiddly! My hubby hasn’t even noticed! lol ****shhhh***** I’m sure he wouldn’t mind anyway.
OOOOOH and look at these lovely creations that I got in the mail!!!!!!!!
The left one is from Joan Fiskateer #808 and the right one is from my Mum.
I love them!
