Journey, Tim Holtz Style

This week Simon Says Stamp and Show a Lord Tim of Holtz technique and the Grungy Monday challenge was to use Tim's Texture Fades and Distress technique. These were two challenges right up my alley. I'm actually  finishing this card almost at the last minute. I knew these texture trades were on their way and I wanted to use them on my card, so I waited for delivery. The image panel is actually in two layers. The first is a piece of manila cardstock. This is where you find the technique. I used the old car texture trade and stamped the backwards numbers on the folder with aged mahogany. Yep, they come out correctly when they reprinted on the cardstock off the folder. How cool! I used black soot on the car and stamped the sentiment above the card. Layer 2 is a morph of a Tim technique from the 12 tags. I took a piece of packing acetate and embossed it with the umbrella man embossing folder. The acetate embosses like a charm. I then dropped terra cotta alcohol ink in the indented figure which colored him. I layered the umbrella man over the car and attached the panels together with the tiny attacher. I used  a torn paper frame (Technique Junkies) to frame the image and adhered it to a panel of Tim's license plate paper.

I love your card. There were so many different umbrella men this week, and each one was so unique. I had forgotten about the acylic folder embossing - you did a great job - and I loved the reminder. I keep saving all that packaging - you reminded me why :-)

Barbara, this is FANTASIC!!!! I really love it! I got the tall trees folder set to try this, it just came in! And the umbrella man on acetate - the color is so brilliant and dimensional, I would not have thought of combining the folders! Fantastic!
