Out of the shadows


The folk at Tag Along, are asking us to use our favorite techniques this week. I have to say  that I have many favorites  so this time I have gone for the inky option and using up some left over bits and pieces. A vague homage to Tim Holz with the grungy colours, and distress inks. Walnut stain,  Vintage Photo and a smidge of Brushed corduroy. With  a scrap of his material down the side,  one of his background checkered stamps , ticket and some fussy cut leaf stamps.



One of the layers is a piece of embossed card, a new one from Sheena Douglas.


The image of the lady  [a Chapelroad Art stamp] was stamped on tissue and like many things was lying around on my desk waiting to be used
I even coloured the scrap of lace with Vintage photo, getting more on me than on the lace.
I had for once too much sun to get a decent photo, so I opted to call this 'out of the shadows' as it fitted the words quite nicely.

Artful Times challenge is also to make a tag, ATC or card in Tim Holtz  style. I hope this will fit the bill there as well.


Thank you for taking time to call by, I realy appreciate your comments.

  16. The woman stamped onto tissue gives the image more depth and I'd say, mystery compared to stamped onto cardstock. You have created a wonderful mood.
