Extreme Masking - Challenge #19

Happy Wednesday to you all!
Studio L3 have another exciting challenge from the Compendium of Curiosities challenge; this time extreme masking. I won't tell you what this is exactly cos its in Tim Holtz's book!
I bought the book and I think it has changed my style of crafting! (for the better I hope! :)). The book is so full of wonderful ideas.
I used Distress inks to colour the background - barn door, peeled paint and walnut stain on a yellow tag.
For the extreme masking I cuttlebugged a 'ornament' shape and used this as a mask. Inside the shape I stamped wording from a Tim Holtz stamp. The stamp stamp is a See D's one.
The lady is from a free image on the Internet somewhere - I think it may have been Art-e-zine.
Thanks for looking

  2. Great tag. Love the shape you have used for masking.


  3. Jolanda, you are ROCKING the Tim Holtz techniques! This tag is fabulous and such a cool design. The ornament die cut made a brilliant mask, and the text stamping inside looks amazing. Gorgeous colors, too, and that image is retro-glamour perfection! Great job!

  4. You did a wonderful job! The image you used is so cool. Love how she's walking right towards you.
