Field Notes | Tim Holtz Stamper's Anonymous

Hello friends! Spring keeps trying to tease that's it here and then it disappears again and winter seems to return. Has that been happening to you too? Today, I'm sharing a bit of a spring themed card featuring the beautiful Field Notes Stamp Set by Tim Holtz. This is one of the cards I created for Tim that was on display in the Stamper's Anonymous Booth at Creativation.

FIELD NOTES BUTTERFLY CARD


I began by creating the background which is watercolor paper sprayed with Old Paper, Antique Linen and Bundles Sage Distress Stain. Once dry, I then spritzed it with Peeled Paint, Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Sprays.  I then spritzed it with water to activate the oxides and dried it again. Finally I splattered some Faded Jeans Distress Spray and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Spray for a splash of color.  I also stamped the background with various stamps from the Field Notes Stamp Set and a script stamp using Ground Espresso Archival ink.

To create the labels, I stamped several images from the Field Notes set onto watercolor paper using Black Soot Archival Ink. I then fussy cut them into labels. I gave the paper a distressed old paper look by inking the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso. I then inked the paper with some Old Paper Distress Oxide and spritzed it with water to activate the oxide and then dried it with my heat tool.

The frame piece was created by die cutting a piece of watercolor paper using the Stacked Baroque Die. To give it the wood grain look, I spritzed the paper with water and embossed it using the 3D Lumber Embossing Folder. I then inked the paper with Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Black Soot Distress Ink. To complete the frame I added a piece of green patterned paper to the backside.

You might notice a bit of lacy die cutting in the background. That is the beautiful new Bouquet Thinlits Die. I cut it from Bristol paper and inked with with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink.

The butterfly is from the Flutter Stamp Set. I stamped it onto watercolor paper using Black Soot Archival Ink and then colored it with Distress Ink. I stamped the following inks onto my craft mat and used a water brush to lift the ink and color it onto the stamped image: Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber.

To finish off the card, I adhered all of the layers and then add a bit of machine stitching with brown thread to the edges.
