Tim Holtz Blog: September 2013 Challenge

I recently discovered the Tim Holtz Blog: September 2013 Challenge.  I was excited to participate in this month’s challenge as the technique he is featuring is really cool.  He teaches you how to take basic techniques and really give it an over the top look.  This month is no exception and I am so glad I tried it out. Join me today and check out this amazing technique.

Tim Holtz Blog: September 2013 ChallengeBig Fan

As many of you know I am a BIG FAN of the Tim Holtz Blog.   I love his products and all that you can do with them. I love Alcohol Inks because they are perfect to incorporate with our line of metal sheets.   Tim Holtz has lots more interesting products that I will continue to learn about.  As I do, I will teach you how to incorporate them with Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets.  

12 tagsThe Challenge

Every month Tim teaches a different technique in the 12 Tags of 2013 Challenge.  This month he focused on the Embossing Paste Technique.  All I needed was a stencil and some Embossing Paste and I was ready to create a masterpiece.  The results are amazing and so easy to create. You will look like a master crafter with very little effort. 

Tim Holtz Blog: September 2013 ChallengeMy Personal Touch

When I first started playing around with this technique, I made a royal mess.  It wasn’t that is was difficult but it was different and so I had to experiment.  I wanted to add a personalized touch and so after covering the stencil with the paste, I added Dazzling Diamonds. I love the finished look.  It looks beautiful and is perfect for a Christmas Card and the Tim Holtz Blog: September 2013 Challenge.  

In addition, I used Tim Holtz’s Tattered Poinsettia Die and Impressions Folder. I die cut them with Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets in Scarlet Red and Garland Green. Then I added Gold Pigment Ink, heat set it, and assembled the poinsettia. The great thing is that with Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets you can make the poinsettia in any color you like and create a stunning effect with the Embossing Paste Technique.  

As you can see, a beautiful card is easy to make and with Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets you can add the perfect touch of elegance.
