Embodied Spirits | Tim Holtz 2020 Stampers Anonymous Halloween

Hey crafty friends! I'm back with another Tim Holtz 2020 Stampers Anonymous Halloween card that I created using some of the new stamps from Tim's latest release. Today I'm featuring the Examination and Tiny Text Halloween Stamp Sets.

This card actually came together rather quickly for me because as soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew I wanted to create a x-ray effect with the skeleton image and Alcohol Lift Ink.

I began by creating an alcohol ink background on Yupo paper. I used Pitch Black and a tiny bit of Pebble and then blended them with Alcohol Ink Blending Solution.

Next, I stamped the skeleton image onto the alcohol ink background using Alcohol Lift Ink. I then followed the steps for lifting the ink by dabbing the image with a clean paper towel until no more ink would lift off. With each dab the ink was lifted and the image was revealed in more and more detail. I also repeated the process using the splatter image that is included in this set.

After completing the background, I created the sentiment strip and label. The label is from the Examination Stamp Set and the sentiment is from the Tiny Text Halloween Set. They are each stamped onto black metallic kraft stock with embossing ink and then heat embossed with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder.

To complete the card, I layered the stamped piece onto a piece of champagne metallic kraft stock and then onto a piece of black metallic kraft stock.

I hope you enjoyed learning how this card came together using the Examination and Tiny Text Halloween Stamp Sets by Tim Holtz.
