Hello friends and welcome to my blog for a really exciting post because today, I'm joining a group of very talented crafters for the Creativation 2019 Tim Holtz Blog Hop and Giveaway and you should've arrived at this post from the very talented Debi Adams

All the details of this hop are below, together with the complete order of the hop, which you can find at the end of my post and all that's left for you to do is...have fun and enjoy!

GIVE AWAY DETAILS

PRIZES, PRIZES,PRIZES!
We have some prizes to give away ~ so, just leave a comment on ALL the different blog hop posts for a chance to win and comments must be posted by midnight PST on Saturday, February 9th and 3 winners will be announced on Sunday, February 10th on Richele's blog

So, let's get started and I hope you enjoy this post and all the techniques I used to create my 'Glimmer of Light' tag that I created for the Sizzix booth using a combination of dies from the Chapter 2 release, which is coming soon...
To begin with I took the medium sized Etcetera Tag which measures, 6.5" x 12" and used Matte Collage Medium to adhere a panel of paper from the Dapper Paper Stash directly onto the surface of the tag. Along the bottom of the tag, you will see a section of red striped paper ~ this is taken from the Collage Paper Stash and is a piece approx 2cm in width that I adhered along the bottom section. Once the adhesive is dry, I then trimmed away any excess paper using a craft knife, I then took a piece of fine grade sandpaper and sanded the edges to give a nice smooth finish.

I now have my background to work with and wanted to add some texture and for this, I used a palette knife to apply Ranger Ink Crackle Texture Paste, applying it to random areas of the covered tag, especially concentrating around the edges. Allow the paste to dry and the crackles to appear before taking the Black Soot Distress Crayon and running it around the edges of the tag, blending out the colour towards the centre of the tag with a semi dry baby wipe. At this stage, you'll find that the pigment from the crayon will sink into the cracks and highlight them.
I now have my background prepped and moved onto the frame and embossed metal section. Starting with the frame, I used the frame section only from the Mini Framed Panel and applied a coat of gesso to prime the wood. Once the gesso was dry, I then painted it using a combination of Walnut Stain, Black Soot and Antiqued Bronze Distress Paints. I applied the Walnut Stain colour first, covering the entire frame with the paint and allowed the paint to thoroughly dry. When applying these layers of paint to any surface, I always dry the paint between each one as this will stop the paints becoming muddy in appearance. I then took a paint brush and used this to dry brush the frame with Black Soot Distress Paint, just allowing the brush to kiss the surface of the frame. Dry the second layer of paint and then using a clean brush, dry brush with a layer of Antiqued Bronze. At this point if you feel that you need more of any colour, just apply the paint using a clean brush and the dry brushing technique.

I allowed the frame to dry before applying a small amount of gilding wax with my finger and rubbing it over the frame to accentuate the beading.

Moving onto the embossed metal background ~ I started by cutting a panel of Mixed Media Heavystock card slightly larger in size than the aperture of the frame and covered this with a piece of Metal Foil Tape, which is self adhesive. Place the metal card into the Mechanics 3D Texture Fade and run through your die cutting/embossing machine to reveal the gorgeous deep embossing that this folder creates.

I wanted this to look really rusty in appearance so the first thing I did was to apply Alcohol Ink to the surface, a combination of Rust and Pitch Black, applied with an Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool that I just pounced over the surface. Next was to add some texture and for this I applied some Grit Paste to the embossed metal panel and once the paste was dry, I then used Distress Crayons to colour it ~ Black Soot, Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo and Cracked Pistachio. I just scribbled the crayons onto random areas, concentrating on the Grit Paste areas and building up the intensity of colour where it was needed.

Once I was happy with the appearance of the embossed metal, I adhered the panel to the back of the frame and then attached the frame onto the centre of my tag. I actually placed some weights on top of the frame so that it would ensure that the frame stuck securely.

Now to create the lightbulb and the bug...
...and beginning with the bulb, I used the awesome Filament die to die cut all the pieces from chipboard. Taking each of the chipboard die cuts, (there are four separate sections to this die, the bulb, two filament pieces and the screw cap) I painted the bulb section with Picket Fence and Fossilized Amber Distress Paint, the filament pieces with Antiqued Bronze DP and the screw cap with Brushed Pewter. To add a little more interest and ageing to the bulb, I inked the edges of each piece.

To create the look of glass, I cut the bulb section only, using a piece of acetate which I then very lightly inked around the edges with Mushroom Alcohol Ink. I then took a brush dipped in Picket Fence Distress Paint and just dabbed the paint in the top left section of the acetate. Once the paint was dry, I assembled the bulb ~ when attaching the acetate, I applied just a small dab of Matte Collage Medium onto the area where the bug will eventually be placed, this ensures that no glue or adhesive will show on the finished piece. To complete the bulb, I added the word 'ELECTRIC' and used the Alpha Numeric Label die to cut out the lettering from a piece of Gold Metallic Kraft card which I had adhered to a self adhesive sheet. Attach each letter, curving them around the top section of the lightbulb.
I attached the bulb onto the centre of my frame using foam pads at the back and placing it over a bed of Sprocket Gears that I inked with a combination of Rust, Pitch Black, Gold Mixative and Patina Alcohol Inks and adhered with Matte Collage Medium. I also added a Mini Sprocket Gear to the screw section of the bulb, placing a Hitch Fastener in the centre.
Moving onto the flying bug ~ and for this I used the Geo Insects die to die cut two separate pieces from black card. I then rubbed a small amount of gliding wax from my own stash over the black card to create a gorgeous shimmery effect to the body and wings. Taking one of the die cuts, I attached it over the top of a piece of Gold Metallic Kraft card, and cut around the outline of the bug, so that you end up with the gold showing through the cut out areas of the bug. I then took my second die cut and adhered this by the body only, leaving the wings free, over the top of the solid section before shaping the wings to give the look of the bug in flight.
Attach the bug to the lightbulb and in the photo below, you can see how much dimension is in this piece.
We're nearly there and all that's left is the finishing touches and the metallic plaque that runs along the bottom.

To create the plaque, I cut a strip of gold metallic kraft card, slightly shorter in length than the width of the tag itself and lightly sanded the surface of the card. For the lettering I once again used the Alpha Numeric Die to cut out the letters from silver metallic kraft card that I had backed with a self adhesive sheet and spelt out the words, 'CAUTION HIGH VOLTAGE'. I attached each letter to my gold metallic strip and then matted the plaque onto a panel of kraft card, followed by another layer of gold metallic card, each time leaving a border around the outside. I then attached the plaque to my tag using foam pads, and placing it centrally beneath my framed section.
To complete the tag, I added Hex Fasteners that I rusted up with a little Distress Paint and placed these in all four corners of the tag...
I then placed a Faucet Knob at the top, which I had painted red, using Candied Apple Distress Paint before ageing it with a little wax and clipped a painted Hinge Clip to the side, complete with a Foundry Adornment hanging down.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and a huge thank you to Richele for organising the hop and to Tim, Paula and Mario for inviting me to be a part of this wonderful creative adventure and for everything they do!
Happy Hopping and hope you enjoy the wealth of gorgeous projects from all the talented designers, that are on display in this hop ~ your next stop is the talented Jan Hobbins.

    Hello Emma !
    I'm writting an article for the issue 79 of the french magazine called "Passion scrapbooking".
    The subject is insects.
    I wish to show your creation (seen here : http://stickydots.blogspot.com/2018/05/a-bugs-life.html) within this article.
    This last one on your blog is great, too ! ;-)
    Would you agree with that ?
    If yes, could you please send me as soon as possible a high resolution photo of it ?
    Of course, your name or pen name if you want will appear next to the image, and the address of your blog will be in the address book.
    Thank you in advance for your quick answer, even if it is negative, so that I can get organized (I have to give my paper very soon).
    Best Regards, Elise AMANN
