Deborah made an etcetera tag called ‘Dyan’s Boutique’ for this week’s challenge. She used Ladies Who Do Lunch Duo, Walk in the Park Duo, and Night at the Opera Duo stamps by Dyan Reaveley Dylusions. The dresses and hats were colored with Dylusions ink sprays. The sign is created with Tim Holtz Alphanumeric dies, and the mirror with Tim’s Floral Frame 3D Impresslits Cut and Emboss Folder.
Andrea has always loved jewelry and made a delightfully dangly pair of earrings. She used washi tape from AALL & Create (Power Words and Vivre) for the collaged top half, colored some white beads with alcohol ink (Citrus and Flamingo, to name a few) and silver-ized some handmade clay beads using Old Silver Prima Metallique Wax.
Barbara used one of the most feminine colors of the Ranger Distress family, Saltwater Taffy, for the background of her tag made with various flower stamps from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous set Spring Shadows.
In the center, the cute bird from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Bird and Egg Colorize Thinlits Dies. She add a quote from Idea-ology Metallic Sticker Book and a tiny heart from Stacked Tiles Hearts Thinlits Dies.
Cheiron used this beautiful girl from the new Tim Holtz Paper Dolls Portraits as the focus of her card and added some wings from Transparent Things. She added her to a background that she created with the Sizzix Arched Embossing Folder, and applied Gilded Foundry Wax to the raised edges as a resist before painting it in using Distress Inks and a water brush.
Emma was inspired by her Grandmother and created a feminine project using the Stampers Anonymous Tiles and Mosaic stamp set by Tim Holtz to stamp a background which was then die cut using the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Stacked Hexagon Thinlits Die Set and arranged into a patchwork pattern. As a focal point she added a Photo Booth image placed in the Sizzix Cut & Emboss Floral Frame.
Kath created a page in her Dylusions Journal dedicated to an Edwardian Lady, using Tim Holtz Villainous Potion and Mustard Seed Distress Oxide inks, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flourish Mini Layering Stencil with Distress Translucent Grit Paste and Sterling Distress Foundry Wax, a brand new innovative and unique product from Tim Holtz and Ranger and Mosaic Layering Stencil with Distress Texture Paste Crackle, lots of Idea-ology and flowers die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wildflower Stems 1.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia House of Roses 12 X 12 Paper on the background and decorated it with Prima Marketing Mauve Dreams Sharon Ziv Flowers and Tim Holtz Sizzix Bold Text 1 Thinlits Dies.
Sandra made a bright card with pinks and yellows by using Infusions Magenta, Lemoncello, Nuvo Shimmer Powder Solar Flare, Cherry Bomb and Sunray Crossette. To add some texture, she used Texture Paste with the Flourish stencil.
Zoey used the new Distress Embossing Glaze in Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry over the texture paste that she applied through Tim Holtz Floral Stencil. She also used Distress Archival Ink for her background and for her cluster she used a bunch of Tim Holtz IdeaOlogy ephemera.
