Distress Glitter CC3 Challenge 2

Our second challenge is to do another one of the techniques in Tim Holtz  A Compendium of Curosities Vol. III on page 56 Distress Glitter. The challenges are lead by Linda Ledbetter on her blog . The second challenge was sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
I am not a big fan of using glitter, but it was fun using this glitter. It was also my first time to use molding paste and gesso.

I used #8 Kraft and Black Ranger tags. Using the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Rays Stencil and Goldens Molding Paste on the Kraft tag  and  Ranger Claudine Hellmuth Gesso on the black tag.
Using the Sizzix BigShot I cut the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Trellis die. I used Rangers Tim Holtz festive berries Distress Marker and Distress Glitter.
The flowers are cut from Ashland Spring Bushes and the leaves are Recollection. They were adhered with hot glue.
Other adhesives used on the tag were Rangers Glossy Accents and Scotch Quick Dry.

CC3 Challenge #1 Paint Marbling

I decided to take part in a challenge to use the techniques in Tim Holtz latest book A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III.

The first CC3 challenge paint marbling can be found on page 43 of the book. This challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium. I used a 6 1/2 X 3 1/2 inch manila tag I had made with the Cricut machine using the Picturesque cartridge.

I used Distress Paints: Peeled Paint, Spun Sugar, Seedless Preserves and Mustard Seed; Distress Ink: Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint; Distress Stain: Peeled Paint (to color the Crinkle Ribbon); Ink: Archival Jet Black  was used for stamping. Stamps: Stampers Anonymous Urban Tapestry, Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings and Inkadinkado Sunday School Inchie.

The finished tag is used as the focal point of a 7 X 4 1/4 inch card (white base). The card layers are 6 7/8 X 4 1/8 inches (green layer) and 6 3/4 X 4 inches (purple layer). The tag is popped up with foam squares. A Tiny Attacher staple is used to secure the stained crinkled ribbon.
