Hello crafty people! I have just finished my ATC for the monthly swap at the All Things Tim Yahoo Group. This month's ATC was to be of course Tim inspired, green, and written on the back, a creative resolution. I am also entering this little guy in Hel's Sunday Stamper Challenge "time", and Studio L3's Grungy Monday Challenge "any of Tim's 12 tags techniques", which is also being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. The time theme is pretty obvious on the card, and the techniques I've chosen from 12 tags are the tissue wrap background and creating an embossed resist. As always, I am excited to see the ATC's I'll receive in return.
|To Create the 2 Tim Techniques: Using Wendy's Studio 490 Art Parts in the ATC, I stained front and back with Distress Stain in Peeled Paint.|
|I stained the tissue tape with Peeled Paint, which really enhanced the dots. Then I sanded over the sides, and the tissue wrap just fell off so smoothly.|
|After embellishing with the embossed metal number 2's (from Mover's & Shaper's Mini 25), a clocked clad mini rosette, pen nib, flourishes, and sentiment, the ATC was overflowing with various textures.|
|I love how the clock turned out on the rosette, and the background is still visible under all the goodies.|
