Natasha project for this weeks challenge is inspired by a rustic theme. She started with the Tim Holtz Brush Arch Layering Stencil Brush Arch and Texture Paste and continued to build layers using Distress Crayons. She used a variety of Tim Holtz Idea-Ology and Stampers Anonymous Cling Stamp Sets for the background. She added shine using Picket Fence Paper Glaze and Foundry Wax.
Anna-Karin made an imaginary voyage by sea and train. She used Tim Holtz Travel Ways stamp set for most of the images. The ship and the train were colored with Prismacolor pencils. The main sentiment was stamped with Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Royal ink.
Barbara interpreted the theme figuratively and was carried away by the desire to be already in autumn, basically time travel! She prepared a card using two die cuts from the new Sizzix collection for Tim Holtz: Artsy Leaves Thinlits Dies and Cracked, 3D Embossing Folder. She used lots of Ranger Distress Ink pads and Spray Stains to color the leaves and background. She chose as a sentiment a phrase from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous The Scarecrow set.
Cheiron wants to be transported back to vacation this week. She made a card with an Alcohol Ink background to remember the glass bottom boat trip she took using Wacky Transport, Under the Sea Colorize and Funky Festive for a fun ocean themed card. She finished her card with some stitching and a senitment from the Simon Says Stamp Big and Bold wafer dies.
Kath created a nautical theme card using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bubbles Layering Stencil with the new Distress Embossing Glazes, Sizzix Funky Nature and Wacky Transport Thinlits and embellished with Idea-ology Tiny Text Remnant Rubs, Prima Art and Mini Art Stones and Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets.
Maura got imaginative in her art journal with the submarine from Tim Holtz’s Wacky Transport Thinlits , being transported by a Kraken (octopus) from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Sea Life set, in the mermaid lagoon made with the Simon Says Stamp Be a Mermaid set.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz MINI STENCIL SET 9 and Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps PEN AND PENCIL on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Quote Chip Labels and Prima Marketing Porcelain Florals Sharon Ziv Flowers.
