More work with Tim's tutorials
I am thoroughly enjoying following along with Tim Holtz tutorials for 12 days of Christmas tags. Sure I have to adapt a lot to the supplies I have but so far I have enough to learn the techniques.
Day 3-Distress embossing powder...Oh this one was so fun to color the image with the distress powders and dump it off all at one time---what a surprise of how good it looked and of course the hardest part is letting the embossing powder cool after heating.
Day 4-Custom making an inkpad--to be done later
Day 5 Alcohol inks-the difference from traditional polished stone is that at the end one drizzling small droplets of blending solution on the ink pieced to whiten some areas and make it look like snow. Also inked the ribbon, beads and bells with the felt used with alcohol ink.
Day 6-Pearlized Shimmer Mist & using a mask
As always Tim presented a few trick that I was not familiar with using. Again anothe fun tag!
Note caribou live in this part of Alaska-may their domesticated sisters, reindeer soon be making their annual trip to your house!
Thanks for looking!...Jan
