Inspiration Photo Meets Tim Holtz's June Challenge

 
Hello friends, so happy to have you visit me again.  I'm here with my sample for week 2 of the photo inspiration challenge at Frilly and Funkie.  Here's the photo again along with my sample for the Funkie week of the challenge.  I also was inspired by Tim Holtz's June tag using the photo tinting technique and will be entering this tag into his challenge.

Don't forget,  you can double click the photos and they will open up large for better viewing.  I cut a tag from white card stock with the Tag and Bookplates die and stamped it with a stamp from the Ultimate grunge set using SU's Taken with Teal and Versamark, then clear embossed it.  Next I did the Marbled Stains technique using Mustard Seed and Picket Fence distress stains and then randomly stamped with the Curiousities set in Coffee archival ink.

For embellishments I added a film strip that I heated to make it curl, a Mini Paper Clip, a Foliage piece embossed with Enamelware EP, and a Label Pull with the word Photograph from the Chit Chat stickers.  I die cut the tiny hearts from a book page and coated them with Glossy Accents.  I

The vintage photo was downloaded from Magic Moonlight and printed on regular white card stock.  I used Taken With Teal and Mustard Seed DI with a Cut 'n Dry Pen Nibs to color the photos.  It didn't color perfectly but it worked pretty well.  I didn't have any photo paper and tried printing it on to glossy card stock, but the ink smeared with the Cut 'n Dry nib so I went with plain CS.

That's if for this one.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments!

Linda: when I saw Tim Holtz meets inspiration photo I kinda went, "HuH?" But when I saw your tag I went, "aaaaaaah." Beautiful. I love that yellow gold/turquoise color combo, and your aged photo is flawless. There are so many interesting elements to draw you into the study of this artful tag. TFS

Now it's on my list to create something for each of these challenges but it would never have occurred to me to combine them!! It so works and adds a really fresh twist to the tag. Thanks for sharing, hugs Buttons x

Hi. I went to your boutique and had some great stuff in my basket. When I checked out, something happened with Zibbett and i guess my order was lost? Since then, at least 3 days,I cannot get back on your store. Everytime I chose an item Zibbett pops up and says there is a problem. I wrote Zibbett and they responded that I should sign in and everything will be fine. NOT!! I guess they think I am an idiot. Anyway, the bottom line is that I have an order, lost it, and now need to start all over but cannot. Can you help in anyway? This is the only way I could contact you as I do not have Outlook. suzschultz23@aol.com. Hope to hear from you. sue

Lisa M said...

Linda, what a great tag! I've always thought that black and white photos with hints of color look wonderful, but only ever did them with a computer program...DUH..why did I not think to use this technique. It really looks amazing. Your little book hearts are gorgeous too.
Love your funky take on the challenge. :)

Deb Neerman said...
