Ah ha! Notice ... no butterfly this time. If you check out Part 1 of Summer of Creative Chemistry Week 3 post, you will see my favorite Tim Holtz stamp (this week). However, I went with a train theme for my tag today.
Again, I'm using Perfect Pearls. This time I've focused on Tim's Perfect Distress Mist Technique. color combos were Antique Linen with Perfect Gold, Picked Raspberry with Gumball, and Vintage Photo with Plum. Here are the background tags that I made.
I made tags with all of the backgrounds; however, I only got around to photographing one of them this afternoon. Here is the background that I started with.
Next I used Distress Crackle Paint in Vintage Photo with Tim's Clockwork layering stencil. I gave the cracks more definition with some Black Soot Distress Ink. I also added some shadowing with a Black Soot Distress Marker. Next came Tim's "Getting There" train stamps. Great size for a tag.
I did some shading with Frayed Burlap, Brushed Corduroy and Hickory Smoke Distress Markers around the stenciling. Then the whole thing is topped with twine and a clockface fastener. What fun!!!!
Well, tomorrow starts a new Week of Summer of Creative Chemistry and Tim's 2nd Live Chat happens tomorrow night. This experience has been fabulous. I'm so very inspired by my classmates. If you haven't had a chance to join in the fun, there is still time. -- Mary Elizabeth
