Check out Tim's video here to watch the master at work. Then be sure to head over to the StudioL3 blog to check out all the creations those clever crafters submitted this week.
Meanwhile, here is my take on this technique...
Now let's take a quick look at how it came together.
I took the Wild Honey pad and rubbed it on the craft mat then spritzed the area with water, and patted my cardstock into the color, making sure it was sort of blotchy.
Using Tim Holtz's "Thankful Silhouettes" stamp set, I stamped several of the images in fall colors, then (as Tim did) I brushed on some Perfect Pearls powder. In this case I used Bronze. Then I spritzed all over with water and dried it with the craft dryer.
Ever since Tim posted this product technique on his blog a few weeks ago, I knew I had to have every single one of his seasonal Texture Fades and stamps that coordinate. Also on that same post, he includes a video to follow along so make sure you check it out. Here on my card, I used the "Thankful Background and Border" set of Texture Fades over my background piece.
Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain are my 1-2 punch for ink-distressing. I do it on everything. Here I rubbed Vintage Photo over the top of everything and then Walnut Stain around the outside edges.
Using some of Tim's newest Sizzix Alternations Movers & Shapers Dies "Mini Tattered Leaves" and "Mini Acorn and Pumpkin" I cut out two leaves and an acorn and repeated the color and pearl technique shown above. I stamped some splatters over them using a stamp from the "Artful Flight" set.
I love these flowers that I purchased on the ScrapMap cruise. Tim was selling them in the Marketplace. I was hoping to pass on the company who makes these, but they are packaged in clear cello bags with no label. I bought three packs I loved them so much. I inked two of them here with Wild Honey and Fired Brick distress inks. An old button and some frayed twine finish it off.
I think I'll go put this card in my Etsy shop now. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Enjoy your Grungy Monday!
