Ice Cream in Winter?! - Tim Holtz November Tag

Hi everyone and welcome. As mentioned in my previous post HERE it's all go here creating samples for CHA in January 2016. I can't wait for you to see the new goodies which will be coming your way in the New Year! It's going to be a real wrench to let the projects go but that's always a good sign.

Meanwhile, in between everything else that's been going on for the past few months, I've continued to work on completing the Paris Portfolio (first seen HERE) - there's been so much to cram inside and now the finishing touches are being added. It's going to take a video reveal to share that one properly with you I think! Rather than opt for a seasonal variation for my Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 November challenge entry I went for something which will feature in the portfolio, namely a French glacé (which we enjoyed immensely whilst in Paris)...

(click on each photo for a closer look)

The background is a combination of the Nordic background stamp with Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen. I added extra detail with the Ledger Script background stamp in Frayed Burlap and some Tissue Tape. The glacé itself was coloured with a mix of Brushed Corduroy, Wild Honey and Tattered Rose. It's hard to see from the photos that even the cone was indented using Tim's clever technique.


The lettering was cut from kraft card covered in various Distress Paints and I used the water brush with a Walnut Stain marker to add a shadow around it. You'll also spot a couple of Remnant Rub arrows, some Mirrored Stars and Linen Ribbon adding the finishing touches.


So that's it - another Tim tag project completed by the skin of my teeth!
I'll be back on Tuesday with a special Guest Designer spot and the chance to share one of those new samples (eeek!!!) For now it's time to wish you a great week ahead and whatever you're up to, take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
