Creativation 2019 Tim Holtz Blog Hop and Give-Away

Hi folks welcome to my stop on the hop and if you've just come from the lovely and very talented JOY KENNEDY'S blog, you're in the right place and wasn't her Professor card amazing and so much fun. I'm so excited to be taking part in the Creativation 2019 Tim Holtz Blog Hop and Give-Away alongside so many awesome and very talented friends and I hope you're having fun and enjoying all the inspirational samples along the way.
I'm sharing a card I made with the Architecture stamp set and oh boy I was giddy with excitement when I first saw this stamp set because I have a passion for old buildings in general and castles, churches or cathedrals in particular. We have a rich heritage of old architecture in the UK, Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, York Minister to name a few, all built by hand, hundreds of years ago, some dating back to the Norman Conquest, yes that's 1066 if my memory serves me right, way before mechanisation and it's an amazing surreal spiritual experience to walk amongst the beautifully intricate hand carved stone columns, lovingly created by very skilled stone masons using just a hammer and chisel.
Luckily us crafters have lots of tools at our disposable and despite what my adorable Professor thinks, my Gothic Architecture Cathedral card was far easier to construct requiring just a pair of sharp scissors and a little bit of patience.

I began by stamping the image inked with Black Soot Archival ink on to 3 pieces of Distress Watercolor Card and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine Clear Embossing Powder.
I brushed a generous coat of water over the image and dropped in Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Pumice Stone and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide inks, letting the water work it's magic and blend the colours.
I dried the panel and applied more ink with a wet brush, dried again and repeated the process until I had built up the colour and achieved the look I wanted.
I trimmed one of the panels to be slightly smaller than an A6 card blank and distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. I cut off the top left corner section and started to fussy cut the different sections from the remaining two panels, popping them up with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive to create dimension. I fussy cut the window sections of the small panel in the centre of the photo and added acetate to the back. I added Mini Foam Adhesive around the matching area on the main panel to contain the Prima Art Stones and once I had added them carefully (because those little blighters go everywhere) I quickly fixed the acetate panel on top before they could escape.


I continued to fussy cut and layer the different sections from the remaining panels until I was happy with the dimension.
I fixed the panel to Idea-ology Classic Kraftstock, lightly sanded back to reveal the kraft core and inked around the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I wound cord around the panel, tied in a bow and added an Idea-ology Story Stick and a Hex Fastener. I fixed the panel to an A6 white card blank using Distress Collage Medium Matte and added Small Talk Chit Chat Stickers
To finish I applied blobs (the technical term) of Distress Collage Medium Matte with a small paintbrush randomly around the edge of the card and sprinkled on Prima Mini Art Stones.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by
and now it's time for you to hop over and visit my very talented friend
to check out her amazing make. I've seen a sneaky peek and this is one you don't want to miss.

I had to go way off the correct way around and come over here because I was dying to see how you put this fabulous card together. I wasn't disappointed, your layering up has brought the architecture to 'life', the colour tones are just perfect and I love that you made it into a shaker card. This is one of those WOW cards Kath!! Hugs, Anne xx

Anita Houston The Artful Maven said...

The fact that you cut out and layered all the architectural parts was beyond amazing! This card really stood out in the SA booth for me!!! STUNNING!!!

butterfly said...

Completely and utterly jaw-dropping, Kath... one of my favourite things I saw in all the Creativation videos. The colours are just beautiful - so evocative of ancient stonework with magical light coming through the windows - and your incredible patience with all that cutting and layering has more than paid off. A truly magnificent piece of artwork.

This was a show stopper, Kath! Not only for the fact that you fussy cut all those layers but the inking and all the details. This is one of my all time favorite cards, ever!!! :)

Unknown said...

Katy I am in love with this piece. Depth, color and age are so inviting. Can’t tell you how many times I have looked at it. You completely changed my mind about this stamp. I found it intriguing when Tim shared it but did not get inspired at that point. Then I saw your lovely piece. The stamp is on my wish list. Also really your techniques. I am doing pieces with multiple layers and you have inspired me. Thanks so much. Great job.
