Blessed Are The Curious...

Hi everyone, thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'm back today, sharing another fun card I made for the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Booth at Creativation 2018.  For this card I used the bicycling trio from Tim Holtz "Theories" stamp set as my focal point.
To start I applied a thin layer of gesso to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 sheet of distress mixed media cardstock.  After dried I used several of the mini layering stencils from set 33 & 34, in combination with some bright colors of distress paints to create a fun mixed media background.
I adhered some vintage book paper to a strip of distress mixed media cardstock, then applied a wash of gesso.  I tied it off with a little Tim Holtz black craft thread.
I just love the scribble style to this stamp set, I will definitely be incorporating it into my art journal!  I stamped the bicycle image and phrase onto the smooth side of distress watercolor cardstock, using black soot archival ink.  I trimmed all paper pieces down to fit kraft A2 cardfront.  I layered with black classic kraft cardstock.
To finish it off I attached idea-ology star brads and an arrow wrapped with a little more black craft thread...after I had distressed them with a little mushroom alcohol ink.
I hope you give it a try.  You can find the supplies I've used via the links below.  If you have any questions please let me know I love your kind comments, I truly appreciate each and everyone of them!  I'll be back soon to show you another project from Creativation 2018.
