Hello everyone! Today I thought I would wrap up my Creativation designs created for Tim Holtz for Creativation 2017. I hadn't meant to drag these posts out, but I have been one busy girl. This card was not received in the show, but I love it so much. It is much more striking in person, as are all of my neutral, grungy palette projects. I cut the bird die from watercolor paper, then dipped the cutout into my Distress Ink puddles to color. I layered over a gessoed printed paper panel and adhered with Mod Podge beneath and on top. It gave the project such a cool leathery feel. I cut a word from inky paper and layered over the new gold kraft core. The hexagon brads are a favorite!
This little number did make it into the show. I inked up a sheet of watercolor and then embossed with the new leafy embossing folder. Simple layering of metallic craft core and stitching, highlighted with a few sequins.
This final card was sent as a thank you to Tim for allowing me to create for him. I used colored kraft core and sanded it to reveal the embossing folder pattern. A dear friend loaned me this elephant stamp that Tim designed about a decade ago, at the beginning of his career. I just love it!
A very masculine and dark palette. I loved the chipboard wildflowers inked up like this.
I am so looking forward to seeing what you all do with the new products. I went to a local stamp convention this weekend, in hopes of picking up some of the new floral embossing folders and stamps. They weren't out yet, nor was the new little house die. I did enjoy getting the new Distress Oxide pads and have enjoyed playing with them, as you know.
Have a wonderful day!
