At A Vintage Journey, our challenges focus on the inspiration of Tim Holtz and we ask that you tell us in your blog how you have been influenced in your creation. Please take a look at the Travelling Instructions for clarification and the guide on interpreting the styles at A Vintage Journey. Don’t forget to provide the name of our current challenge theme and a direct link to that challenge in your blog post. For this challenge please also tell us the stamp set you have used. (It doesn't need to be a Tim set - just tell us how he has influenced you.)
The Creative Guides have made some amazing pieces to provide some inspiration. Do pop over to our personal blogs where you will find more detail on each of the projects. Of course there is plenty more inspiration to be found on Tim Holtz’s blog too!
Our lovely sponsors, Country View Crafts are, once again, offering a £10 gift voucher to spend, to one winner who will be chosen by the team.
I loved layering the stamps together to create an all over pattern
then colouring with the rich Dylusion inks
Please pop over to my blog to see how I constructed my Couture Creation
I used the Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous Set Oddities CMSO83
and as you can see I had a great time using the stamps, stencils, Idea-ology and TH Sizzix dies as well as some splatting here and there with Distress Stains. You can view the process over on my blog by clicking my name above.
I'm loving using Artist Trading Blocks as boxes for storage purposes in my craft room (what's that saying, "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." William Morris) There's a bit of a collection building now and this is the latest, using every stamp from the SA 'Classics #3' set. There are six sides to this so head on over to my blog and take a look.
Some fabulous projects to inspire you and we look forward to seeing how you use Every Stamp in a Set. Please remember it does not need to be a Tim Holtz set but please do tell us how you have been inspired by Tim in order to be eligible to win.
