Monster Mash

13th October, 2017

I am back with a couple more samples that I made for the Tim Holtz inspiration series. If you follow Tim on facebook and instagram you may have seen the inspiration series with seasonal projects by lots of talented designers. There’s a recap each Saturday on Tim’s blog.

Today I’m sharing a monster mash of cards made with the incredible new Stampers Anonymous Monstrous stamp set for the inspiration series. To see the rest of this monstrous conga line, check out the Monstrous Makes post on Kath Stewart’s blog.

I used the Tim Holtz stamp platform to ensure a nice bold image. Using the label frame stamps as a base, stamp with black soot distress archival ink and fussy cut. Stamp the newsprint background stamp over the top. Blend Vintage photo distress ink into the label and spritz with water to get the distress ink to react.

Stamp the monstrous heads with black soot distress archival ink and watercolour with distress markers. Fussy cut with tonic mini scissors and adhere with 3D foam.

For the Frankenstein card, die cut claw marks into the label, lift and ink the edges with vintage photo distress ink. For the Dracula card, die cut a cobweb and adhere over the top of the stamped label. Both using dies from the new sizzix thinlits dies by Tim Holtz.

The card mounts are some of my usual favourties, kraft card base, metallic kraft stock, classic kraft stock, corregated card and cork from the idea-ology surfaces pack. All sanded with a sanding grip and blended with vintage photo distress ink. The Dracula card cork was washed with candied apple distress marker using a water brush.
