Estelle created a Halloween card with Tim Holtz The Count, Ghost Town 2, Gate Keeper and Alphanumeric Varsity Die Sets. She used Black Soot Distress Crayon to create shading behind the houses and Metallic Kraft Stock for the gate. For the background she spritzed with Distress Oxide and Ink Spray Stain and used a Distress Sprayer to splatter water and Halloween Distress Mica Stain.
Andrea made two art journals using a Boho Rainbow die set from Whimsy Stamps. Her journals were made sturdy by using Kraft Heavystock and she added sentiments to the cover from Dina Wakley’s Ledger Papers, Set 1. She also added in watercolors and Media Gloss Spray for her spritzy-splattery effects.
Anna-Karin used almost only Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Spray Stains to color both the background and the butterfly on this card. The butterfly was die cut with Tim Holtz Perspective Butterfly. The square pattern in the background was made with Simon Says Stamp Mix and Match Squares Stencil and Distress Texture Paste.
Barbara loves the theme of this week! Spritz and Splatter are her favorite techniques! She used a lot of Tim Holtz Ranger Distress spray, the new Distress Halloween Mica Stain Set 3-Set 4, Ranger Distress Oxide Seedless Preserves, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Stencil Mini set 30, Idea-ology 2021 Halloween Mini Flair, Tim Holtz Sizzix Feathery Thinlits Dies.
Cheiron created a card with Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and Foundry Wax splatter as her background using a Tim Holtz Splatter Brush. She added die cuts from the Simon Says Stamp Privet Branch dies and finished her card using a sentiment from the Stampers Anonymous Noteworthy stamps.
Emma is really excited about the brand new Halloween die release from Tim Holtz and Sizzix and she used Mischievous and Bold Text Halloween to create a card. She combined the new dies with the older Oak Leaf 3D Impresslit Cut and Emboss Folder and set her black cat against a moonlit background of spritzed and splatter Mica Sprays.
Kath had lots of fun adding spritz and splatter to the background and die-cuts on her Art Journal page. She used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Linked Circles Layering Stencil from Set 52, Eccentric and Field Notes stamp sets and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Theory, Specimen and Modern Floristry Thinlits .
Lols started by spritzing Dylusions Fresh Lime Ink Spray onto a Brutus Monroe Fancy Fan Stencil and then layed some Distress Watercolor Paper over the top to absorb the ink, she then splattered with Black Marble Ink. She added a row of Houses using a Katzelkraft Spiral Borders Stamp Set to complete the background. She used a Cats On Books and Balloons Stamp Sets, colored with Distress Inks to complete the birthday card.
Macarena went crazy with her new favorite Tim Holtz Brushstrokes stamp set and she made a underewater scene for her yellow submarine from Tim Holtz Sizzix Wacky Transport 1. The coral reef was made with Craft Consortium Sea and Shore dies.
Maura went out of this world with her spritzing and splattering. She used the Art by Marlene Out of This World Paper Elements, Stencil Girl’s Orbitz stencil, and added lots of splatters with the Tim Holtz Splatter Brush.
Meihsia was inspired to create an art journal page using Royal Langnickel ZEN WATERCOLOR BRUSH Set and Zig PORTABLE GANSAI TAMBI 14 Colors Travel Watercolor Set on the stamped image from Impression Obsession Clear Stamps SEAHORSE AND SHELLS, and decorated the page with Tim Holtz Idea-ology ENGRAVING LAYERS and Tim Holtz Idea-ology REMNANT RUBS LABELED.
Zoey used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Specimen Thinlits Dies as the base of her project. She used Distress Spray Stain to color the background and added texture with Grit Paste. She highlighted parts of the texture with the Foundry Wax in Statue Color. As for decoration she used Ideaology Photobooth and the pumpinks from the Pumpking Duo
