Yet another monthly Tim Holtz tag done in the nick of time. Actually, I made a card, not a tag.
I felt bad sticking the little birdie behind bars, though, so I let him peek out.
Tim’s technique of coloring over Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint with Distress Stains gives such a cool effect. I used Broken China Distress Stain for the bird, Vintage Photo Distress Stain for the branch, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stain for the birdcage.
Some of the other embellishments:
- Trinket Pin
- Mini Gear
- Jump Rings
- Symphony Tissue Tape
- Glass Pearls from Joann’s
- May Arts 1″ wide silk ribbon
I also really liked Tim’s idea of stamping ribbon with Jet Black Archival Ink and then coloring patches with Distress Stains. I used Broken China and Wild Honey which make a pretty emerald green when mixed.
Oh, and lest I forget, today is What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, so here’s a pic of my desk when I was done making this card. Just about as messy as you’d expect.
Happy Woyww and Happy creating!
