The current Country View Crafts challenge and my very 1st official challenge is "Inspired By Tim Holtz". As soon as I saw the theme I was really pleased! Tim has inspired me since I started to craft in 2007.
So - here is my first creation....
I started by creating an alcohol ink background using sailboat blue and juniper alcohol inks- I LOVE these colours. I hadn't used alcohol inks for a little while so it was lovely to use them again. I had forgotten just how fun they are to use! I cut a slim slice from the background to use for the sentiment panel.
I then used the Mixed Media 2 die to cut the swirls in opposite corners of a white card panel.
I then attached this to the alcohol ink background and adhered it to a card front.
I stamped a sentiment from Tim's Simple Sayings stamp set and adhered this to the centre of the card.
To finish I added a seam binding bow and a few adhesive pearls.
I was really happy with the end result!
Do pop over to the Country View Crafts Blog and see the other amazing projects created by the Team, and I hope you choose to join in the challenge.
Thanks for looking.....
