Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous - Go+See+Explore

Hi my friends, today I'm sharing the Go+See+Explore card I made for Creativation 2020 and the Facebook Live launch of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous 2020 collection of stamps and stencils using Inventor 9, Glitch 1 and the Circuit and Digits Layering Stencils, all from the March release, shipping to your favourite store or online retailer NOW and Tiny Text from the January release. If you missed the Facebook Live, you can check out all the products and inspirational samples over on Tim's Blog HERE and take a tour of the Stampers Anonymous booth at Creativation with Tim HERE.

I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to be slightly smaller than A2 and spritzed with Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Oxide Sprays to create a soft background.
I inked the images from Inventor 9 with Frayed Burlap, from Mini Glitch with Aged Mahogany and Black Soot Distress Archival and stamped randomly on the panel. I used Black Soot and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide inks with the Circuit and Digits Layering Stencil to build up a collage effect on the background.
I inked the trunk image from Inventor 9 with Black Soot Distress Archival, stamped on to Distress Mixed Media HeavyStock, coloured with Aged Mahogany and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide inks using a mini round blending tool, fussy cut and fixed to the panel.
Then it was time to look out my new addiction stamp set, filled to bursting with sentiments for every occasion. I had already stamped the whole Tiny Type stamp set by leaving the stamps on the carrier sheet, inking with Versamark and heat embossing with Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder on to Idea-ology BlackOut KraftStock

So all I had to do was trim out suitable sentiments and add to the panel using Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive.
I inked the arrow image from Mini Glitch with Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink, stamped on to a scrap of  Distress Watercolor card, trimmed leaving a white border around the edge and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte.

To finish, I sanded back the edges of the panel to reveal the white core and fixed to an A2 card blank which I had covered with Idea-ology BlackOut KraftStock.

Have fun whatever you're creating
Toodle-oo for now
