Good morning friends, Kim here with my next DT project for White Rose Crafts.
This week the team is celebrating all things Tim Holtz!
I have a good selection in my stash of Tim Holtz items, thanks to the WRC shop.
I decided this week to play with his Stampers Anonymous Stamps and the Distress Oxides and make my own ribbon.
Here is how I did it!
I ripped strips of muslin fabric for a blank base, but you could use some printed fabric or any cotton fabric for this project.
I stamped several different images on each of the strips and on some of them, such as the one with the Union Jack from the Euro Elements Set, I used a subtle colour for that and then the darker, vintage photo on top, which is the post card stamp.
I loved the effect of layering the stamps on top of each other.
Because I used the Distress Oxides, the stamping came out quite chalky looking, and if you choose you can give the ribbon a light spritzing with water to make the images more faded looking, as the Oxides are water soluble so water will make the images run a bit. To me that would be a wonderful look if you are going for a more vintage and tattered vibe.
I just love how these came out! This is the first time I have stamped with the Oxides on fabric and they worked amazingly well.
I plan on using my new ribbons on some upcoming WRC projects so stay tuned for that!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here.
