|Tim Holtz idea-ology Tissue Wrap Flower|
The sponsor for this week is The Funkie Junkie Boutique (http://www.zibbet.com/TheFunkieJunkie).
For the challenge I followed Tim Holtz's instructions on page 37 of "A Compendium of Curiosities Volume II" and made a tissue flower. Of course I wanted to use it as an embellishment for a tag so I could also use my new summer seasonal distress inks. These flowers are super easy to make and I love working with Tim's idea-ology Tissue Wrap. It is sheer and silky and so durable.
I used distress ink and perfect pearl spray on the tissue flower and tag. The butterflies are embossed with Distress Embossing Powder which works as a resist to the Distress inks. I used alcohol ink on the idea-ology wing. The black ink is Archival Jet Black.
I have both "A Compendium of Curiosities Volume I and Volume II". These books are a great reference for Tim's products. Great information on what they are and what they do. Both volumes have a great technique section with step by step photos, a great Gallery of Ideas and the final page is a list of suppliers. With beautiful photos and gorgeous design I find these volumes to be compendiums of inspiration.
