Tim Holtz Print Tray !

Here's what my desk was tidied up for!! lol...... My print tray in all it's glory!! :D

Something slightly different with the fact that it's all girlie and flowery! Absolutely ADORE that little birdhouse though!! Must get me more of those! :D

The wooden bird was just painted in a darkish brown then overstamped with a background stamp and embossed with clear embossing powder! Then painted over with white which was then wiped off, shows up the dots really well! The birdhouse was just painted and some little silk ribbon bows and flowers added. The lizard in the middle is a little toy rubber one which was gilded and then melted UTEE poured over from the meltpot! Did the same technique with that tiny little key in the botttom right corner! There's an old key fob, some chipboard letters, buttons, hearts, and some die cuts. The three paper flowers were versamarked then embossed with clear embossing powder to make them look like porcelain!

The two  big roses at the bottom left were made using a rubber stamp. The Square gold tile is a chipboard square which was triple embossed in gold and them stamped into while it was still hot, got great texture with that one!! The coloured rose at the top is done on stampboard, coloured with Inktense pencils then triple embossed with clear powder, the same technique was used with the rectangular tile at the bottom! The little tile at the top with the green diamonds is actually a domino! Coloured with alcohol inks and them stamped onto!

The little book on the left is a 'ticket strip' which was stained using distress stains, then stamped onto the inside , concortina'd and held closed with a matching ribbon!

Think I've covered all the bases on bits and pieces...  I had a blast with this project as it is a lot 'softer' than the last one I did!

I learned all the techniques from Jennie at The Artistic Stamper , she ran a workshop last year which I attended and I LOVED every minute of it!! Jennie and Co. were wonderful and I learned soooooo much that day! Want to do another one but sadly funding won't allow at the moment!

anyway, It's late and I'm off to bed....

Take care and thanks for dropping by,
