Getting in on the Action With Seth Apter's Baked Texture and Tim Holtz Ideaology and Stampers Anonymous



Hello friends! Today the Funkie girls will 'Get in on the Action' at Frilly and Funkie as we head into the second week of our current challenge picked by our talented Kathy. I made a card to thank some friends who invited me and Autumn to stay at their lake house a couple of weeks ago.

Here's what Kathy has to say about her topic,"Adding an interactive element on a card, tag, layout or canvas adds a bit of fun to any project. For this challenge, create a vintage or shabby chic project that incorporates an interactive element of one sort or another in the design. You can add a pocket and tag, a hidden tag, a hinged page, a flap, a flip, a tuck spot, a special fold or any kind of interactive element that appeals to you. Be sure to tell us in your post what makes your project interactive, as it may or may not be apparent in a photo."



I began by making my background using Heavy Stock and Distress Oxide and Ink--Iced Spruce, Aged Mahogany, and Pumice Stone. I laid the Clockwork stencil over my panel and blended with Ground Espresso ink. I added some background stamping and a couple of Remnant Rubs. I layered this over black card stock. That was layered over Coordinations paper stash dipped in inks and distressed, which tops a panel from Tim's Correspondence paper stash. I colored the printed paper with Distress Oxides in brown, blue and Aged Mahogany. Seth Apter's powders give some texture and patina; I used a combination of Deep Sea and Ancient Amber.




I finally cracked open my new-to-me Pocket Watch Frame die and cut two watches; one from Metallic Kraft Stock and one from black foam and layered them for dimension. I used a couple of circle dies to cut the black circle and the embossed inner circle. The black circle was cut from black card, and I used Distress Grit paste and a few of the new powders by Seth to get that grungy rust--Rocky Road with a little Chunky Rust and Patina Oxide. The inner circle is cut from the metallic kraft, embossed with Tim's Gears Texture Fade. and colored with Distress Black Soot paint and Caramel alcohol ink.  I got in on the action by punching a hole and layering Tim's Mini Gears, clock face, and Game Spinners with Long Fasteners. I love things that spin!


I used a Quote Chip and altered it with a Clippings Sticker for my sentiment and added beautiful texture with Beeswax BT powder. The powder melts smooth, but I heated it just until the crystals started to melt to get this watery look. I layered it up on a scrap of card made to look like rusty iron. For details on how I made this and altered my metal embellishments,  you can see my Saturday Showcase featuring Baked Texture powders at Frilly and Funkie HERE.




A couple other interactive elements are the Ideaology Swivel Clasp and Hinge Clip. I altered these with Seth's Rust and Patina Baked Textures.  I made the removable ticket using a vial label with a Remnant Rub and backed with a scrap of old Tim Holtz papers. I can write a personal note on this, but I liked the Grand Hotel reference.


That's it for me! Now it's YOUR turn to get in on the action.
