It's a FINN glimmer, TIM tag & Coo-ing for CARDABILITIES kinda post...
Soooo...3 in one. First up, is TIM HOLTZ 12 tags for 2015. It's all ANNIE's fault. I saw her tag. And decided maybe it was time I checked Tim out. Oh, YEAH. Got super excited:
I'd made some tags the other day. This one got, as the Kiwi's are fond of saying since their earthquake 'MUNTED'. That is, I spilt water on it. But I figured that was the least of its worries if it was gonna be a Tim Tag!!!
So, first I added some GlueNSeal to the front & back of this tissue paper I 'found'. Ummmm....
...not sure if that was what I was supposed to do, actually. ANYWAYS....
...then the Distress Paints were supposed to be splashed on. Well, I don't have any. But I figured Distress Stain would work....or maybe not? I added some Paint Dauber in grey.....deffo thinking NOT supposed to add that glue N seal...but it sorta worked, so I kept going! Following the technique by...errrr...memory??!!!!
Now I remembered Tim added letters/numbers by Glossy Accenting them, then adding glitter. And I DISTINCTLY remembering reading do NOT rub in the glitter. Well, I also 'found' some DIY Thickers that were already sticky. Soooo...I added glitter & rubbed it in well!!!!
Then I found these old, old 'Collection' words & did a bit'o'magic with them:) WOOPS! Lost my tag hole under wonderful. Oh well.......& TA DAAAAAA. I was sooooo happy with how this turned out:
->->->-> Sooooo.......I LOVED doing this so much & just before I'd gone blog hopping on FINNABAIR'S SPARKLE & SHINE HOP....honestly, her team is super-duper creative. You'll learn a lot by hopping along. Also, to win a wonderful collection of Finn products, you can do a project & link it up. So I did!
Hide your eyes if you don't want to see the CHRISTMAS word quite so early in the year. But, seriously - all that sparkle just SCREAMS CHRISTMAS to me......so, as per usual, I'm starting my cards. In January. GIGGLE!!!!
Can't go past gold, mica flakes [thanks Yvonne!] & glossy accents....plus a bit of shimmery vellum for a Chrissy Card, eh?
Then I edged along with some InkaGold - adore that stuff!
->->-> Then....somewhere in the midst of this, I realised I was going to need a BABY card. So I turned to the latest CARDABILITIES sketch. By this time, I wanted to change direction. I admit. I was grunged out!!!!
So, here's my COOOOOO - te [cute!!!!] boy card. With a lovely vintage image c/- Mary :)
Not a distressed edge in sight!!! Nothing like a change. Good as a holiday!!!
Thanks for looking ~ & taking this rather meandering journey with me today....& as ALWAYS...
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
