This month on Country View crafts our theme is "Inspired by Tim Holtz".
I began by getting out my Compendiums of Curiosities, written by Tim and got together a few ideas.
First, I experimented with a few different methods of creating backgrounds with alcohol inks and settled on one called "Alcohol Ink Monoprint", which I am sure you can look up.
Onto this I added some stamping from his stamp Sideshow CMS263, using blue archival and white fresco snowflake.
Next, I stamped my main image from the same stamp set and added some Alcohol Ink Splatters.
Using more Tim techniques, I created an alcohol ink background onto acetate and then an "Alcohol Ink Resist, where you stamp with archival and then gently rub to remove the ink.
I used this as an overlay and secured it with brads, leaving the bottom section clear.
There are a couple of TH rub ons too, to add to the finish.
