Inspired by Tim Holtz

Studio L3 Grungy Monday wants to see our projects inspired by Tim Holtz’ 12 tags of Christmas 2011. I took inspiration from Tag n° 4, my favourite tag of this year’s series (so far, there’s still one tag to go). Here’s the result:

As there are lots of Tim Holtz products that I don’t have, I had to be creative. I substituted his snowman die cut for his snowman embossing folder and I cut out the embossed snowman manually (I used paper instead of grungeboard). I also don’t have the picket fence distress Stain, but I discovered that Pearl acrylic paint dabbers combined with broken china distress stain also produce wonderful results.

Here’s a more detailed picture, but i’m afraid it’s impossible to show the card’s real colours and texture on pic:

Instead of punching ’25’ out of the snowman, I punched snowflakes out of the background, I added a stamped paper behind it (music sheet) and then I filled up the snowflakes with Glossy Accents.

I quite like my Tim inpired card and, what’s more important, I really enjoyed creating it!
