Donna here to show you some tags using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Brick Wall and Cobblestone Decorative Strip dies. Of course, since they are the subject of our Friday Focus that means that these two dies are available for an additional 15% off of the already discounted price at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! You should snap them up now!
These dies may seem challenging to use but it's really easy to get great results with them. They can be used as wall, a walkway or to create a brick or cobblestone finish on another die cut. I created two versions of each die as shown below. Depending on how you color them the possibilities are endless!
On this tag I used a piece of the mossy brick wall. The great thing about these dies is that the finished strip is long enough that you can use it on multiple tags or cards. I plan to create more of them to have on hand for adding to my art!
On this tag I used the brown cobblestone strip. My intention was for Umbrella Man to be standing in front of a wall but I realized, just now, that it looks like he's standing on the wall! So it might look to some of you like he's standing on a cobblestone walkway! I used multiple diecuts to create the outfit on Umbrella Man. I recently saw this technique on Richele Christensen's blog here and wanted to try it...genius!
I hope that I've sparked some ideas for you with these tags. As I mentioned, I'll be back with a StepXStep to share my technique for creating these strip dies as well as to share some additional projects. So be prepared by ordering these strip dies now while they are being offered at an additional discount!
Thanks so much for joining us today! The following items that I used on my projects can be found at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! The boutique offers merchandise for up to a 20% discount from the typical retail price!
