Tim Holtz and his manager Mario are generously supplying lots of goodies you can receive if you are the Curiosity teams choice . So here's hoping !!! Below is my entry
I am not allowed to show you the technique for faded layers in respect for Tim Holtz
Work in the book. But I layered my layers , if you see what I mean :-)
Inside the box windows. You can see it under the bee. Lovely effect.
The wooden storage unit is shown above & below stained with
Tim Holtz peacock feathers distress stain as I wanted the wood grain to still show
I later added some persimmon to the corners too.
Then I spritzed some butterscotch color wash inside, accenting with
Some red smooch spritz as 2nd photo below
I had a nice little dress form , ideal , used my distress
Stains again (can't you just tell they are new !)
Burnished bronze , gorgeous
I had some metal industrial left from a previous project (clock) so added it to my dress
Form after de-bossing & inking over with Fresco finish French roast , see below.
My lovely new Bee die & embossing folder arrived, so would
Be rude not to use it ! I cut & embossed him in Tim Holtz paper
And also in Wendy Vecchi clearly for art.
The clearly for art bee (below)was then inked with alcohol inks & heated
With my heat gun so I could shape it before layering it on top of
The blue card bee above
This is the pack I cut the blue bee from, below
Here is the clearly for art pack. Fabulous stuff, stamp cut colour and shape !
He looks good here with his amber eyes I think !
From here on there was lots of embellishments & inking etc
The photo below shows the idea-ology measuring tape where
I added an eyelet and chain
To hang my little scissors from
with 'Hand made'
I stamped 'Sewing' with the stamps below on a beige piece
from the pack shown here below
I also cut out the letter for 'BEE' here too & some flowers , see below.
Here are some close ups of some of the details.
