This time Tim shows the rub on resist technique, which really looks very effectful and was definitely a lot of fun to try. I don't use rub ons really, so I had to use what I had (which was exactly one single sheet with rub ons to be honest ;) - which lead to the tags theme - the way I look at nature and art. Nature is all around us, so art is too as it influences an artist's work and view at the world. And art is somehow expressed nature - the nature of the person who created that piece of art to be exact. At least that is how I think art, artists and nature are related.
The Distress stains used for the background were "crushed olive", "pine needle", "tumbled glass" and "brushed corduroy". Background images were stamped using "sepia" archival ink and stamps from the Tim Holtz classics #7 plate, his small "Mona Lisa" and the bird image from the Shabby French plate were stamped using jet black archival ink.
As I do not have the film strip ribbon I used the Sizzix Tim Holtz "mini film
strip" die and glued it onto the tag.
The enameled tag was blended using Ranger alcohol ink "juniper". Not owning any remnant rub ons, I used StazOn black ink with the Tim Holtz stamp from the classics #7 plate and pressed the tag onto the inked up stamp, trying not to smear the image.
The white ribbon was coloured using Distress stains, dried with the heat gun
and attached to the tag. I also used a self made ring fastener, which was die cut along with the tag and stamped with the same stamp from the classics #7 plate as the enameled tag to fit the look of the rub on resist.
A little blending around the edges of the fastener and the tag. Voila! Hope you like it!
Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by!
