Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - Field Notes

Hi my friends, I'm sharing another card I made for Creativation 2020 and the Facebook Live launch of the newest collection of stamps and stencils from Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous using CMS 396 Field Notes, CMS 394 Tiny Text and the Bouquet Layering Stencil. If you missed the Facebook Live, you can catch up with all the stamps and stencils and inspirational samples over on Tim's blog HERE.

I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to measure 4" x 5/1.4", spritzed with water and sprayed with Festive Berries and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Sprays.
I inked the images from Field Notes with Black Soot Archival and stamped on to Distress Watercolor card.
I fixed a sheet of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Sticky Grid to the lid of my stamp platform to hold the Tiny Text stamps and it's carrier sheet in place.
I inked the entire stamp with Versamark ink, stamped on Tim Holtz Idea-ology BlackOut KraftStock and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder. I now have an endless supply of my own Label Letter sentiments to trim out as required.
I die-cut tags from the BlackOut card and Distress Watercolour card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Tags Thinlits. I sanded the BlackOut tag to create a shabby vintage look. On the second tag, I applied Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink through the Bouquet Layering Stencil and stamped Tiny Text randomly inked with Hickory Smoke Distress Archival.
I fussy cut the Field Notes images, coloured with Festive Berries and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide inks, fixed some flat on the panel using Distress Collage Medium Matte and others popped up on Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive to create dimension.

I added machine stitching, twine to the tags, fixed the panel to BlackOut Kraftstock trimmed to be slightly larger and adhered to a white card blank.

Love is in the air in the cubbyhole and I'll be back tomorrow to share a trio of cards inspired by Monday's Art Journal page.

Great tag, love the use of red, quite a change from the usual colours.
