Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - The Professor

Hi folks, I'm sharing the last of the cards I made for the Stampers Anonymous Booth at Creativation 2019 using The Professor CMS373 and Inventor 7 CMS374

I was thrilled that Tim named The Professor stamp set using the affectionate name I gave him after Creative Chemistry 101, it's one that I use all the time, usually prefixed with the word ADORABLE and woohoo, it was very sweet of him to give me a little shout out on the Stampers Anonymous Sneaky Peek Video on his blog.
I trimmed Distress Mixed Media Heavystock to create 2 panels, slightly smaller than A6 and die cut a tag using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Tags Thinlits.
I coloured one of the panels using Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxides and the other and the tag using Antique Linen.
I added some splatters using Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink
I stamped the compass image from the stamp set on the larger panel using Ground Espresso Distress Archival ink
I placed the panel and tag in the Stamp Platform and stamped the gears image from Inventor 7 with Ground Espresso Distress Archival ink
I trimmed the lighter panel to be slightly smaller and placed it, along with the tag, on the larger panel, lined up the compass stamp with the image stamped on the larger panel and stamped with Ground Espresso Distress Archival. I stamped the Lacing image with Black Soot Distress Archival.
I sanded the edges of the panels and fixed them in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte. I pierced holes in the Lacing Image using a Distress Craft Pick and threaded with Eclectic Elements thread.
I inked the Professor and propeller images with Black Soot Distress Archival, the measuring tape image with Ground Espresso Distress Archival, stamped on to Distress Mixed Media Heavystock, coloured with Distress Oxide inks using a Detailer Brush and fussy cut.
I added Idea-ology Numbers Remnant Rubs and Nailheads
and an Eclectic Elements thread bow to the tag.
I covered an A6 card blank with Black Classic Kraftstock, sanded to reveal the kraft core and fixed the panel in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
Have a great weekend, whatever you have planned and I'll see you all on Monday to share my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. You still have time to join in with this week's Whatever The Weather Challenge with a chance to win a $50 gift card to spend at Simon Says Stamp.
Toodle-oo for now
