Happy Wednesday Everybody!
Time for a NEW challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!
This week is Use Your Favorite Tool
We are featuring products by Tim Holtz
You do not have to use them to join in but if you have some,
we would love to see them used.
Here is my take on the challenge.
When I saw this challenge on the list, I was totally excited and panicked.
Which Tim Holtz product to use? What IS my favorite tool?
After all there are SO MANY AMAZING products to use.
After a bit of thought I came back to my to favorite Tim Holtz items
DIES and MY FAVORITE TOOL the Tim Holtz Tonic Retracting Craft Pick.
I used some of my favorite Thinlits Dies
And Bat Crazy
To create this spook night scene.
The moon behind the mountains is created with the largest round die from the
Simon Says Stamp Nesting Circles Wafer Dies
I smeared on Ranger Texture Paste Opaque Crackle on to the die cut "the moon".
Once it was dry, I inked up my “moon” using
Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber and Crushed Olive Distress Ink
This gave my moon that creep look I was going for.
The bats were created the same way using
Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock and Ranger Texture Paste Opaque Crackle.
Now to my favorite tool, the Tim Holtz Retracting craft pick.
It is one of those tool’s that you did not know you needed, until you buy it.
All the new dies coming out have so many intricate areas need to be poked out.
the Tim Holtz Tonic Retracting Craft Pick is perfect for this.
I also use the tool for dropping glue into small areas on a die cut.
I score paper with the tool. Scrape off unwanted embossing from a mistake.
The list is endless.
These are some of my favorite items, what are yours?
Use your favorite tool and Tim Holtz Product and link up to the Wednesday Challenge.
That completes my card!
