Hello, it's Sue here and today's Friday Focus is all about Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations. There are so many of them now that is was difficult to know where to start ! A big thank you to Jenny for helping me with my choice.
I started with some Apothecary bottles that have been die cut from mount board.
I painted all of the bottles with gold acrylice paint.
Then spread Wendy Vecchi Crackle Paste over them.
I used Archival inks to colour the bottles as I wanted the colour to be permanent.
I also had some die cuts of the bottles from acetate, I used the Tim Holtz script stamps and stamped onto the acetate using black Stazon ink.
I used the cabinet die in both sizes and covered the card with paper from the Wallflower paper. I then rubbed black acrylick paint around the edges.
Next up is the Writing Desk die and I've cut the pieces from mountboard again. I also painted them with gold paint then blended some black acrylic paint over the ink pot and pen when the gold paint was dry.
Now I had the main pieces ready I turned my attention to the substrate which is a wooden Triptych. I've painted it with acrylic paint then a crackle glaze and a top layer of a lighter acrylic paint. I then sanded areas to distress the paint even more.
I stencilled over the Triptych using a couple of Tim Holtz stencils and black acrylic paint. Then I assembled my die cut pieces.
I used a stamp from the Perspective set for the main text and cut the bottom row of words off and then into separate words. I used Archival ink to colour the cardstock.

The word on the central panel is from the Mercantile stamp set and I covered a little tag with some more paper.
