Flower Shop and Faded Type...

Hi my friends, today I'm sharing another card I made for Creativation 2020 and the Facebook Live launch of the new collection of stamps and stencils from Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous using Flower Shop and Faded Type, 2 of my favourites from this release, both shipping this month and Tiny Text, another favourite, available to buy now. If you missed the Facebook Live, you can catch up with all the new releases and amazing inspirational samples over on Tim's blog HERE and HERE

I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to 4" x 5.1/4", inked the two images from Faded Type with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine Clear Embossing Powder.
I spritzed the panel with water, sprayed with Rusty Hinge and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Sprays and flicked on drops of Rusty Hinge.
To enable me to stamp on top of the emboss resist, I placed copy paper over the panel, ironed over the embossing with a medium hot iron (do not use on the spray setting) and moved to a clean section of the copy paper until all the clear embossing powder had been removed.
I inked the images from Flower Shop and Faded Type with Black Soot Distress Archival and stamped on the panel.
I attached Tim Holtz/Sizzix Sticky Grid Sheet to the door of my Stamp Platform, fixed the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous carrier sheet on top, inked the whole stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder on to Idea-ology BlackOut KraftStock.

I trimmed the sentiments I required and fixed to the panel with Tim Holtz/ Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive.

I matted the panel on to an A2 white card, covered with Idea-ology BlackOut Kraftstock, sanded back to reveal the kraft core.
I'll be back soon to share some more production line makes
Toodle-oo for now
