I can’t believe there have been 21 challenges already! Linda Ledbetter’s doing a great job putting these challenges together, and the Curiosity Crew always makes such pretty examples of each technique from Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities III.So much inspiration! You can join in any time; and why wouldn’t you when there are prizes to be won! This time the sponsor is The Inspiration Emporium, and coincidentally, I am getting ready to place an order. It’s so much fun shopping there; if you’re a Tim Holtz fan, they’ve got just about everything you’d ever want!
This time we are turning to page 55 and learning a technique using Rock Candy Distress Glitter. I can’t tell you exactly what we did, but it was fun and easy and of course, sparkly! (I always love sparkly.)
My take on this was as a background and I used this particular image, stamped a few times onto a tag which had been colored with Distress Ink:
This is a close-up; the whole stamp is about 5″ long. I’m showing you the stamp because there’s no way you can tell what this image is in the final product! But it does make a great sparkly background.
Like 99% of everyone else, I’m thinking of Valentine’s Day this week, so I went with that theme.
Hopefully this closeup shows the sparkle at least a little bit. Rock Candy Distress Glitter is very chunky! I sprinkled a bit of “regular” glitter on as well to make sure all the areas were well covered. The round stickers are by Bo Bunny.
Using a Tim Holtz die, I made a pretty pink rosette to compliment the pretty fluttery lady.
I punched the center from red glitter paper and added Stickles to the rosette edges. A bit of lace, ruffly trim and a sheer ribbon for the top, and this tag is ready for its Valentine debut!
