Hello everyone and welcome!
Today the lovely Alison from Words and Pictures has set a new challenge over at A Vintage Journey. The theme is "A Little Touch of Tim". What she wants us to do is create an ATC, and of course as A Vintage Journey is a challenge blog inspired by the work and techniques of the one and only Tim, it should be in true Tim style.
Here is what I made:
Here's a quick run down of how I went about it:
I cut 3 bits of card to just a fraction smaller than the obligatory 2.5 by 3.5" because I like to mount my ATCs to make them a bit stronger.
I had selected 3 photographs (vintage freebies from the net, all depicting groups of 3 children, I had 3 on my brain for some strange reason).
I added some bits of old book pages, tore around the photo and then adhered it to my card:
The other two were done in pretty much the same way.
When I had completed all three I decided to create a Triptych with with the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Gothic Arch die, I love how it is just the right size to mount ATCs on. I cut 3 from...... guess what? The packaging of Tim's Stencils!. I then cut two strips of Kraft card to act as hinges and then cut three more from some Prima paper to act as backing and to hide the hinges.
Well hope you like this little touch of Tim. Make sure to hop over to A Vintage Journey to see the amazing ATCs my teamies have created, and we all hope you will play along. You could win a £10 voucher from Country View Crafts our wonderful sponsor or be selected as one of our "Pin Worthies".
Have a great weekend and stay inky!!
