You have until Friday MARCH 22nd to upload your project to the (tim's) blog and share it with the world!
On Saturday MARCH 23rd we will pick 5 winners who will EACH receive a $100 Tim Holtz prize bag filled with an assortment of creative goodness!"
I can't pass up joining in on the challenge!
I decided to make stamps using a foam sheet, Wonder Tape Sheet and the Tattered Floral Die.
I cut a piece of heavy chipboard (I think I got it at Paper Source years ago) to 8 x 10". I figured that was a good size and since I have no expectations for this project I thought it would do nicely.
I cut a sheet of turquoise Core'dinations Kraft core cardstock (say that three times fast) using the new Block Talk alpha. This alpha just came out at CHA. Nice big 1 1/2" letters.
I sanded the letters to reveal the kraft color underneath...love that.
That was a mistake.
I should have just glued them to the canvas as I had them just where I wanted them.
But I'm not going to dwell on it, just learn from my mistakes.
layer 1: I used Picked Raspberry for the largest flower. Super easy with the dabber top.
Remember Distress Paint is only reactive with water when it is wet. Once dry, it is permanent. So if you let the Distress Paint dry between the layers (or dry with a Heat it tool), if you make a stamping mistake, you can quickly wash it away with water and it will not effect the bottom layers.
(so this is where I forgot to take a picture. Please pretend you see the canvas with a bunch of these yellow flowers...my, isn't it pretty? that paula, she's a genius)
I knew the canvas needed green leaves to bring it all together, however I don't have a Bigz die that has small leaves. What I do have is a flower that looks like it's made from leaves. So I cut another flower just as before, but this time I cut it up to make leaves. I cut some so they would have a stem and some that do not, as I was not sure which I wanted to use. I put each of them on small pieces of plastic and now I'm ready to stamp.
Flower vs Leaves
So not too bad and so far it has been super simple. I could stop here and add my saying but this is suppose to be a challenge so I better keep going...
This is what one Shapie pen and 30 minutes can do.
Seriously, just follow the lines.
And some Remnant Rub words that make it mean a little more. Really, could the Remnant Rub words go any better with Shine Brightly?
