I had fun using Tim Holtz products and following his techniques for this project.
Here are the pictures I have taken while making the background.
I've followed Tim's layering stencils technique. To start with, I stenciled with Antique linen distress paint and Blazonry stencil on white card. Next layer was with alpha stencil and weather wood distress paint. After that I spritzed Evergreen Bough distress stain randomly on the surface, spritzed water onto it and dried with my heat tool. Distress paints resisted stains and water, it is still showing through. Then I took Honeycomb stencil and wild honey distress ink to get more texture. Some more stenciling with Tim's Gothic stencil and walnut stain spray. During all these layers, I heat set them.
You can watch video demo by Tim holtz here.
In this picture, you will see, I stamped butterflies, text and tiny dots with coffee archival ink/wild honey DI
I started layering ephemera. I used Honeycomb framework diecuts for more interest. I colored metal embellishments with suitable alcohol inks. 'Remember' is a wooden piece, again colored with alcohol inks.
