Dies and Distress is the current challenge chose by the fabulous Annie at A Vintage Journey! What a great line up of Tim inspiration my DT Sisters have for you, so you must pop over there for all the details. There is always a prize to be won from our sponsor, Country View Crafts and of course you could be among the "Pinworthies."
Tim's Pocket Watch dies and plenty of Distress products, along with stamps from Artistic Outpost, which with their vintage appeal work so well keeping in Tim style. First I started with a "Faux Batik" background that was stamped with the AO gears (Industrial Backgrounds) with clear embossing ink, powder, heat set. I inked over the surface with Peacock Feathers, Dried Marigold and Vintage Walnut. One thing I like to do after the Spritz and Flick water treatment is to dab your foam applicators over the wet spots. It just adds a little extra interest. When I was pleased with the colors and added a little subtle background stamping, I removed the embossing and inked over with the various colors, but mostly Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.
The movers and shapers were done as above, except they were inked with Dried Marigold and flicked with VP and PF paint. For the spinner, I dabbed both paints and flicked on some thinned black and then covered with clear EP and heat set.
Both the stamped gear and clock from AO were stamped using Archival and clear embossed. I used Tim's circle movers and shapers and all just fits so well!
A few gears were added and one eBay find, some rub-ons, a Key and Word Band and all is happy!
I hope you have enjoyed your visit as much as I enjoy your taking the time to stop by. Have a wonderful weekend.
