Double Tim Fun!

Hi everyone,

When I woke up this morning and I saw that Tim had made his tag of May, I was SO happy. Was looking forward to it for some time now. Since yesterday there is also a new Compendium of Curiosities technique at StudioL3 and this time it's the shattered stains. This time it's sponsered by Simon Says Stamp! Linda says it's a simple technique, but I do not always get the desired result. I think it's because my crackle paint is as thick as jelly! But I used ​​the last bit. I bought the biggest package and I have just checked it and it's perfectly  liquid. I'm hopeful for the next time :).

The crackle paint was not the only issue I had today, I have no melting pot, and I really wanted to do the porcelain technique. So I melted UTEE in a pan on greaseproof paper, and the UTEE burnt a bit! In the pan was some UTEE and it burned into my pan, so I have to throw it away .... NOT be repeated! DON'T try this at home!










Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

  14. Love your tag - I like the way you have incorporated both challenges into the one and its very effective and bright isnt it! I have a melt pot but I have heard that you can use a tin foil dish and heat gun (hold the dish with a peg to stop avoid burning your fingers) to melt UTEE too.

  21. Wow! Despite your problems, I am glad you soldiered on with this tag. It is wonderful. Could not resist coming over when I saw the dummy. This has to be my favourite of Tim's die and stamp sets. x

  22. Well your end result is gorgeous! Love that dress form and colors! The entire tag is so luscious! No way to save the pan? What a shame! I have a melt pot, but have yet to play with it! Soon!

  23. Ooooooohhhh, wat is íe mooi!! Dit is zo jouw ding, Tim Holtz technieken beheers jij als geen ander (ja, Tim kan wel oppassen hahaha). Utee ken ik helemaal niet, dus daar hebben we het volgende keer wel over, ik heb wel zo'n smelt ding gezien in een show van Heidi Swapp, dat zag er wel heel gaaf uit.

    Liefs,
