Christmas shadowbox

I have been hoarding this shadowbox for a few years and finally an idea hit me to use it. I used a lot of Tim Holtz dies and products. The tiney little cardinal was cut using the TH cardinal die with shrink plastic. The snow was made using texture paste and distress glitter.

This had some scraplifted ideas I found on pinterest. Sorry for the bad lighting.

I wasn't feeling the technique used for the focal image so I did my own and water colored the Tim Holtz leaf stamp and then cut it out and dipped it in UTEE.

Haunted House

I had a lot of fun making this haunted house.  I started off with some cardstock that had a wood grain print on it and then embossed it with Tim Holtz wood plank embossing folder and then sponged on some distress inks. I didn’t have the rooftop die so I had to be creative and got out my rosette die and used it as the roof top.

I painted a plain wood plaque with black soot paint and when that was dry I put globs of glue onto it and place the moss on top.  The fence was made using the on the fence die that I then colored in with pumice stone paint and while still wet sprinkled on pumice stone embossing powder and heat set.  I also used the same technique on the tree (Tim Holtz die). The bats were from the Halloween Shadows die and the graveyard also. I used the mini scaredy cat die and mini pumpkin die and cut them with shrink dinks and after they shrank I painted them with distress paints. A whole lot of Tim products were used here.

I can’t wait to start on a Christmas house.
