Tim Holtz/Sizzix - Festive Bouquet

Happy Friday my friends, I'm sharing the Embroidery Hoop I decorated using Festive Bouquet and Festive Words Thinlits for the YouTube Live launch of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Christmas Seasonal release and if you missed the Live, I would recommend you hop over to Tim's Blog HERE and check out all the fabulous new products and the amazing amazing inspirational projects from all the makers.


I began by fixing Sizzix Adhesive Sheet to Distress Watercolor card and die cut with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Festive Bouquet Thinlits.
The advantage, for me, of using Sizzix Adhesive Sheet is that it keeps all the die-cuts in place while you colour and if you don 't use all of them, you can store them easily for future use. I used a variety of Distress Re-inkers (colours linked below) with a Distress Detailer Brush to apply the colour, drying between layers to create shading and depth of colour.
I trimmed a piece of wadding to be roughly circular and larger than the hoop. I randomly stamped the images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Vintage Holidays and Sparkles and Christmas on to the wadding, inked with Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and Barn Door Distress Archival Inks. I inked the sparkle image from Vintage Holidays with Distress Embossing ink, sprinkled with Ranger Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.  I separated the hoops, painted with Tarnished Brass Distress Paint and once they had dried, fixed the wadding in place between the two hoops and pulled to tighten. I tucked the excess wadding into the back of the hoop and covered with a circular panel of heavyweight cardstock.
I die-cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Festive Words several times from Distress Watercolor card, painted the shadow piece with Tarnished Brass Distress Paint, coloured the word with Barn Door and Carved Pumpkin Distress Re-inkers using a Distress Detailer brush and layered to create dimension.
I assembled the Festive Bouquet die-cuts and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.
I added an Idea-ology Tiny Text Christmas Remnant Rub to complete the sentiment.
To finish I added a white tulle double bow and gold sparkle thread bow.

Tomorrow's Saturday and that means, I'll be heading over to Tim and Mario's place for the YouTube Live launch of the Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Christmas release, 9am PT, 12 noon ET and 5pm UK. Woohoo, I'm so excited and hope to see you there. Enjoy your weekend, whatever you have planned.
