Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2013 - September

September tag for the 12 tags of 2013 called for layering stencils, and I managed to grab some of the new TH stencils straight from the first batch that shipped. Hop over to Tim's blog for the tutorial steps - here's some progress images for my tag:

I know it's a bit of a bore the replicate Tim's color scheme, but I just loved it! I am trying to get out of my comfort zone of brown shades, so I think this was a good start :D The only switch I made was the purple being Seedless Preservers, other than that it is the same Peacock Feathers and Wild Honey. Before laying on color I used a Prima stencil for the checkers, both with modeling paste and the Picket Fence Distress Paint.

Next up was layering with the other stencils and stamping. I used the Rays and the Eye Chart for my layers with different brown/black shades of Distress ink. There's a little of The Crafter's Workshop Tiny Circles there as well on the right edge, but that's almost covered by the stamping. The stamp is from Kreativ Hobby, called Grunde Bård II.

Finally some washi tape, metal embellishment and chit-chat stickers and the colored crinkle ribbon:
