Guilded Glassine Birthday

Baaaaaaad Aunt Sue here. Completely brain-farted my Favorite Only Niece's birthday which is tomorrow. But Linda rescued me!! It's time for Compendium of Curiosities II, Challenge 14. As always, based on the book by Tim Holtz, who's latest and greatest thing is his own app! Yep, Tim Holtz...there's an app for that! You can get it for your I-phone or pad and also for Android. Just click his name above and look for the app link in his sidebar. One really cool feature is you can input all of your Tim Holtz supplies based on manufacturer as an easy reference for when your shopping so you don't get duplicates. :::not that I know anyone who has done that!::: And there's also a "wish list" section so you can put all the things that you don't already own that you want. Ummm...wouldn't that be everything else he's created that I don't own?! This week, our sponsor is The Funkie Junkie and one lucky player will win a $25 shopping spree to her Zibbit store.

This week's challenge is the Guilded Kraft Glassine technique located on page 39 of the book.  I decided to do a "Dyan-esque" tag for Miss Joy since she's more of a girly-girl than gears and sprockets (not that there is anything wrong with that!) So I started with three of Dylusions Spray Inks and then used Dyan's ghosting technique with stencils and water, then splooshed a bit of Spray Inks on some stamps and rolled them here and there for some layering and texture. Used the head and legs from Pondering Petunia and painted them using Dylusions Spray inks. I did the guilded glassine technique and used my Heart Wings die to cut out the heart for her body and crown, which I applied some pink bling to since Joy is a Princess and must  have some bling on everything Aunt Sue creates for her! There's also a tiny bit of the glassine on the right leg of her pants which had a bit of a hole in them! Since she will be 10 tomorrow, I used a 10 BINGO chip and painted it white then once it dried, painted it with Dylusions Squeezed Orange Spray ink. A little Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the outside edges and a piece of grosgrain ribbon dyed using Squeezed Orange, Lemon Zest and Bubblegum Pink Spray Inks finished this tag off.
