THE TIM HOLTZ 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - DAY 9
Well, mine today looks nothing like Tim's. It was inspired by the double embossing and the new holiday distress inks and a diecut but...I had several failed attempts doing the red and green with a stamp so I decided to use the inking embossing folder technique from the other day. I inked my folder in gold. I used the Evergreen Bough over the raised parts then covered the whole thing with versa mark and Utee. I cut a Gingerbread boy from chipboard and stained it using Wild Honey Distress Stain. Then, after that was dry I used my ink blending tool to add some Walnut Distress Ink around the edges. I added 2 green pearls for eyes, traced the mouth with black gel pen and put white felt rickrak on the hands and feet. I covered the rikrak with White Liquid Pearls to make it look more like icing on a cookie. There were two little hearts which I used some red glitter and Rock Candy Stickles on. I mounted it on my card which I had edged with the Evergreen Bough ink. Added a border of black rikrak trim and I was done. Here's my version of today!
