This week we are welcoming the lovely and super talented Wanda Hentges aka Art By Wanda into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat! please pop by to say ‘Hi’!
Wanda has used black cardstock and Distress Paint to create a canvas panel incorporating several Tim Holtz products. She used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wildflower dies a Flourish Embossing Folder, a Photobooth image, a Quote Chip, Tim Holtz/Stamper’s Anonymous stencils, Regular and Oxide Distress Inks.
Andrea turned fa-la-la to mwahh-ha-ha by using Tim Holtz’s Home for the Holidays die for her Halloween card. She made the car’s passengers out of his Trick-or-Treat thinlits die and added some patterning to the background using his Dot Fade stencil.
Anna-Karin made a Halloween shadow box and had such fun creating a starry sky background and adding lots of details. She used Tim Holtz Haunted House stamp set, as well as lots of idea-ology embellishments, such as Skulls, Heirloom Roses and Ancestors Paper Dolls.
Emma’s wickedly dark burlap panel was dyed black using Black Soot Distress Spray Stain and embellished with many items from Tim Holtz’s Halloween release including corked vials, a Halloween Paper Doll, skulls and Typography Letters.
Macarena is not a fan of Halloween craziness so she stayed with just dark colors and Tim Holtz amazing products. She made a dark but optimistic card with a cool texture made with Cityscape Skyline die and Leafy stencil. She embellished it only with a Paper Doll and Botanical butterflies and of course Quote Chips.
Maura wrote a dark tale about White the Druggist and laid him to an uneasy rest in his Vignette Coffin Tray by Tim Holtz, where he is surrounded by spooky images from Tim’s Halloween Ephemera pack and Ancestor Paper Dolls.
