Design Team Project #1 Featuring Tim Holtz & Carta Bella (All Hallows Eve) ....




Good morning Snazzy followers .... Gillian here kicking off this months DT projects featuring Tim Holtz Halloween Blue Print stamp set & the lovely Carta Bella All Hallows Eve Collection Kit.

I have used the Large Flourish Frame from Studio 490 which was painted with Acrylic Paint Dabber (Pitch Black). The centre frame was inked with Distress Stain (Wild Honey) and stamped with the background image from Studio 490 Art Inspiration set using Archival Ink (Jet Black).

I then stamped the spider/cobweb image from Tim Holt's Halloween Blue Print set using Adirondack Ink (Snowcap). I then used a section of border images from the All Hallows Eve Collection Kit, adhering to the centre frame. The Cork Vials & Bat embellishment are from Ideaology the cork vials have been decorated with stickers from the Elements Sticker Sheet and have been filled with Distress ReInkers (Rusty Hinge & Mowed Lawn). To distress the top & bottom of the Flourish Frame I swooshed it with some Distress Stain (Tarnished Brass).

Don't forget you can now play along with the Design Team by ordering the kits online saving 10% if bought together.

Well that's it for now but I will be back with several more projects this week .... until then TFL x
