These ATC cards were made using the Tim Holtz Artful Muse Texture Trades.

Texture Trade fun.

For the gold tag I used the same texture fade and same die. To rmbellish this tag, I used a post card stamp to stamp the dress form, added feathers, black ribbon sash,a safety pin,buttons, black embroidery floss and a button reinforcer. I also added a small flourish in the lower corner.

I colorized the flowers and the lace (both are from Lavish Trimmings). I added some buttons, ribbon for a sash, a jeweled stick pin , bling and a hanger clip.

On the pink tag I used the pattern texture fade then I blended antique linen, worn lipstick and victorian velvet distressing inks. To add shimmer I misted the tag with forever red perfect pearls. I cut the dress form from grunge board, covered the top portion with sticky back canvas which I shaded with antique linen distressing ink.

I used Tim Holtz stickles to highlight the flowers. I also used the memo pin and long fasteners.

I used the Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutant papers and embellished the project with Tim Holtz sprocket gears, foliage and philosophy tag.

My Steampunk projects remined me of my first wax project where my love of Graphic 45 and Tim Holtz first met.

Sew Special

Then I lightly blended over the stamps using stormy sky,and antique linen distress ink. On top of that i stamped the saying. I added some Grahic 45 Steampunk Debutante tags, embellished them by adding a filmstrip,sproket ,gears and a fragment (Tim Holtz goodies).

You've Been Punked
Okay this tag was fun! I stamped the tag with the Tim Holtz SteamPunk stamps, using archival black for the larger stamp, then stamped a smaller stamp over the top with victorian velvet.

I embellished my tag with K & Co. Americana stickers, distressed the edges with vintage photo and added red and blue fibers... So red, white and cool !

This remined me of fire crackers...so I decided to create a patriotic tag. I used lipstik red, victorian velvet, stormy sky and faded jeans distressing inks which I blended over the perfect pearls ( I wasn't sure if it would work, it gave sort of resist appearance.

American Pride
I created this tag soaking up wet forever red perfect pearls from my paint box (it was still wet from a previous project, i didn' want to waste it). The texture of the box transfered to the tag as I blotted.

Aah...my bird' I was pleased' i gave him just a hint of color using stormy sky and victorian velvet distressing ink. Finishing touches I added the adage ticket with a hinge clip and brown metalic ribbon.

I added a grunge bird which i cut with music paper. I added kraft glassine flowers (you guessed it...Tim Holtz die) which I crinkled, misted with antique gold glimmer mist and added bling of course.
That glassine is so cool to work with I crinkled and crunched until the petals looked real

This bird is singin' my song!
I'm playin' with my stash this week. I created this tag using peeled paint,dried marigold, stormy sky and antique linen disress ink. I stamped branches with vintage photo and birds with stormy sky (Nature Elements stamps) added some speckles at the corners, distressed the edges and misted the tag with perfect pearls.
