I made this Cube Tassel Ornament. The base is a wooden cube and each side is 1 inch by 1 inch. I think this is a FUN way to use the German Scrap. Ok I LOVE German Scrap and you can put it on almost everything LOL.
is hosting a weekly challenge where we will dive in and explore the techniques in Tim Holtz's FABULOUS book ... Compendium of Curiosites. Thanks Linda!! I am enjoying these challenges!!
This is for theAlcohol Ink Splatter. Ok think this is a technique I think I can live with out. I can now say I've done it...just not my cup of tea LOL
Took me all morning to come up with one one card from the three backgrounds I made. Not thrilled with it....but decided I was done with it and happy enough. :) and OH WOW the mess I can to go clean up now.
Thought I'd play around with this idea today and here's what I came up with.
(You'll have to click on the photo if you'd like to see the details)
Oh yeah...I thought it was pretty simple and hadn't planned to share the how to...but Gloria, our wonderful Group Leader at AllThingsTim saw this tag on FB and suggested I share. So here you go...
I ripped pieces of tape starting with the bottom width of the tree and alternated the snowflakes and postcard tape until it looked like a tree shape to me. I used my non-stitck sheet to lay them out....and then used peeled paint distress ink to color the tape and hit the outer edges with forest moss...let that dry while I covered my tag with a nice neutral paper (the back of one of the Halloween pages in the Seasonal paper stack). Cut out a tree truck using the exacto and the yeah that looks like a tree truck method. Glued on the tree trunk and tape pieces to form the tree. Stamped the flourish stamp from the Tim Holtz's Reindeer Flight set. Glued on buttons with glossy accents, stacked and added the gold and silver stars to make the tree topper put a tiny green bead in the center. Added Happy Holidays with the label maker. Edged the tag with Pine Needles Distress Ink. Added Lime Green Stickles to the tree and flourishes. Made dots here and there with Diamond stickles for falling snow. Added a backing of pretty holly paper and pretty fibers.
