I am back with a Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge card!
This week’s challenge is It’s a Guy Thing – the design team is featuring Tim Holtz Products!
I have so many different Tim Holtz products it was tough to narrow it down to what I wanted to use, that would fit on a card ha! I decided to start with one of my all time favorite stamps of his- Umbrella Man, and I went from there!
I used the ruler stamp from Tim Holtz’s Artful Tools cling stamp set to stamp in gray on the gray cardstock. I used his Odd’s and Ends set to stamp the ticket and sentiment. I used his paper edger to distress the edges of the ticket.
Before I stamped the Umbrella Man on Distress watercolor cardstock I inked it with a blending tool and a mix of Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Black Soot on the edges. I then dripped water droplets on that background and let them sit, lightening the color in those places. I heat set it with my Heat tool and then using the Measured Layering Stencil added a little bit of ruler with Antique Linen Distress Paint and a stiff brush to the upper right corner of the Distress watercolor cardstock. THEN I stamped umbrella man with Archival Jet Black ink.
To finish it off- I mixed some Ranger Texture paste and ink from the Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink pad, and spread it through one of the Arrows on the Layering Stencil. Once dry I added some white enamel dots on it. I also added some Rock Candy Distress Stickles to the umbrella.
Ok- so now it’s time for YOU to enter the challenge. NEW is the theme this week so you can play with a new product that Santa delivered to you, OR it could be “new baby” “new home” etc.
