Tim Holtz Tiles

Hi again,
back again with another project form the craft retreat - this time I decided to alter a couple of mdf tiles. These tiles are quite inexpensive but are so easy to work with.
The first one I used to demonstrate that it's not necessary to paint or prepare these tiles to make something lovely...
First we stamped the raised frame part using a brown ink, the centre panel was made using a piece of oyster contour card. First we clear embossed an image, then coloured the panel with distress ink, stamped with the same colour of ink, then flicked water at it for the splatter effect. The butterfly was also clear embossed and coloured in the same way then fussy-cut and attached over the die cut trellis

The second one was used to demonstrate a completely contrasting finish, lots of bright colours and a primed base...
The frame part of the tile was painted with a chalk effect paint for a matt finish. the background was clear embossed as before, but this time we used some nice bright colours to colour it and black archival ink to stamp a sentiment. The feathers were diecut and embossed the coloured with the same colours of distress ink, with bakers twine added to finish it off

Wow Debbi, two totally different looks and finishes, both equally cool! Love that first muted tone tile, so moody and cool, almost steampunk, but the second one is amazing with its candy colours! Love them both, the feathers look amazing! Hugs, Wends x
