Still on the what do you do with Tim Holtz Idea-ology packaging - here is another idea:
Rustic Silhouette Resist:
A shot to show you the dimension:
So what is it? I save the packaging from Tim’s idea-ology stuff (yes I am addicted to Tim’s stuff but don’t tell my husband). I cut off the flat pieces of the packaging and use it. In the card the scraps of plastic are the colored flowers and the butterfly - you can really see them in the dimension shot.
The overall technique used with this card is Paint Resist -this is one of my favorites - of course I love any resist because it’s like magic to me. Here are the steps:
1. The background is clear embossed on a page from an old book
2. Then cover with brown acrylic paint and allow the paint to dry
3. After the paint is dry mist a paper towel and wipe the paint off the resist portion. When using pages from an old book be CAREFUL to not rip you paper.
Colored Flowers and Butterfly
1. Do steps 1 - 3 above except instead of the old book page use brightly colored scrap book paper
2. After removing the paint from the embossed areas use Glossy Accents to adhere the plastic packaging scraps to the pieces and allow to dry
3. Then cut out the pieces - I like to leave a “paint boarder” on them so I don’t cut right up against the embossed image
4. Bend as you like - they will hold their shape
It looks like a lot of instructions but give it a try it’s really easy! I have one more Green Tim Packaging idea for you tomorrow - so until then - start looking for your scraps of Plastic Packaging!
