This week for my Bubbly Scrumptious piece I decided to create a cute little grungey frame using some of the Tim Holtz techniques I have learned this year, part of which are from the 12 tags of Christmas.
I started by sticking a scalloped frame to a square frame, both of chipboard.
Next I randomly stuck tissue tape collage style over the frame used an embossing tool to shape the tape around the scallops.
I then inked the whole thing with Meadow and Willow alcohol ink which I had applied with a piece of felt as Tim did HERE.
I stamped my Scrolls Work stamp - Althya on to a light coloured piece of Prima patterned paper in Crimson archival ink using a brayer to apply the ink to the stamp - I wanted it to look distressed so didn't ink it thoroughly.
I coloured the image with Rusty Hinge and Bundled sage distress ink.
Once dry I glued the stamped image to the frame
I added some frayed burlap distress stickles to the frame and the stamped image.
Next I inked my chipboard swirl with Walnut stain distress ink and coated it with Rusty Hinge distress embossing powder. When cool I brushed away the excess and inked the exposed patches and edges with the walnut stain ink and glued it to my frame.
I then made two tissue tape flowers following Tim's video tutorial
I glued them on , spritzed them and added some vintage buttons with a nice blob of the distress stickles delicately smeared on.
Doesn't she look cute?
I have added this to Studio L3's Compendium of Curiosities week 26 challenge where there is a fabby prize up for grabs :D
