There is still time to enter the In Disguise Challenge at Inspiration Journal and we would all love to see you join in. There is a huge prize of 50 Inspiration Emporium Dollars for one lucky winner! Inspiration Emporium also have exceptionally reasonable postage rates to both the USA and Europe.
I don't actually have the amazing Luminary die by Tim Holtz but my lovely and extremely talented friend Jenny (Buttons) cut me a few and they only come out occasionally as I don't want to use them all up! It takes a little bit of time and patience, but the end result is always worth the effort:
The pillar and the luminary have been treated the same, coated with Ripe Persimmon Distress Paint, a crackle glaze applied on top, followed by Black Soot Distress Paint. I love the way the vibrant Ripe Persimmon shows through.
The pinecones at the bottom are from Tim's Pinecone die. I have just got the new larger pinecone die, they are quite large and for those of you who like to make flowers, this will be the perfect die to make lovely large roses.
The 'glass' is made from left over packaging material and I used Tim's Cobweb strip die to add some detail to the glass. The orange blog on the front is actually a spider which has had his body covered with Distress Glitter (Spiced Marmalade). The beautiful little leaves are from Tim's Autumn Gatherings Strip Die and they have been coloured with various Distress Stains.
The top has been decorated with Tim's original size pinecones and crinkle ribbon coloured with Spiced Marmalade Distress Stain.
I'll leave you with a slightly better view of the spider........ just perfect for Halloween.....
