Hi All. Thank you for dropping in to Jumbled Crafts today.
Here I am bleary eyed after staying up to watch England get beaten in their first World Cup football match. Not sure it was worth the effort on my part as I thought they made a mess of it to be honest--I don't know too much about football so maybe I am being unkind to them.
At A Vintage Journey this time the theme is Wings and Things. All of the challenges there are to be strongly Tim Holtz influenced and I am sure that can't be difficult as he seems to influence so many of the crafty things I see on blogs and also has lots of great videos to watch :) I often feel sorry for him when he is demonstrating as there is so much noise around and people wanting to ask questions.
I made this card and embossed the background in the TH clock folder and highlighted the embossing with a Distressed Ink or two.
The next part was to watch a video, again, about how to make a background with Distressed Inks, spritzer and use of the heat gun. Heck I have watched it so many times I have the link on my desktop but if I don't watch it I miss something out--old age I guess.
Then I splodged the summery, Distressed Inks onto some thin card and cut out the small flower shape, of the Tattered Flowers die, lots of times and used them as they were instead of creating different flowers with them. The bird cage is raised so I could let the bird look as though it could go in and out as it wished.
TH things I used--oops, forgot to add the embossing folder to the collection for this photograph. Not sure who made the bird die cut I was sent it by someone but the butterfly shape is by Tando.
I would like to enter this at That's Crafty as well where they have the theme birds.
Have a lovely day everyone
