Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the VintageChallenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to look to the skies!
Whatever The Weather
As it is the first Monday of the month we are showcasing a particular company or designer. This week we are all using products designed by the fabulous Tim Holtz
This week we are welcoming  the lovely and super talented Lisa Rabellino into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog you are in for a real treat! Please pop by to say ‘Hi’




Sotto una stella e sotto ai raggi di sole di uno stencil di Tim Holtz ecco la mia Etcetera tag di questa settimana dedicata alla creatività, all'immaginazione, al pensiero!
Tutto il materiale che ho usato è di Tim Holtz... ma per me diciamolo sinceramente non è stata una sfida difficile...

Under a star and sunrays by Tim Holtz here is my Etcetera tag this week dedicated to creativity, imagination, thought!
All the material I used is from Tim Holtz ... but for me let's honestly say it was not a difficult challenge ...


Ho iniziato con due Embossing folder e il blocco di cardstock metallizzati usando il colore argento.
Come secondo step ho ricoperto la mia Etcetera tag misura Mini e ho iniziato con gli acrilici. Io amo mischiare  Black soot e Ground espresso, si ottiene un indefinito colore che può essere interpretato sia come nero che come marrone. per i punti più chiari che somigliano a una patina ho usato Broken China, Antique linen e Brushed corduroy tutti stesi con le dita, fatico moltissimo con i pennelli in questo momento!
A questo punto un pochino di carta vetrata o lima da unghie ( io preferisco la lima da unghie di cartone...) sulle parti in rilievo in modo davvero leggero per  non togliere tanto colore.

I started with two Embossing folders and a cardstock metallic, silver color.
As a second step I covered  tag with metallic embossed cardstock and I started with acrylics. I love to mix Black Soot and Ground espresso, you get an indefinite color that can be interpreted both as black and brown. For the lightest spots that look like a patina I used Broken China, Antique linen and Brushed corduroy all spread with my fingers.
At this point a little bit of sandpaper  on the embossed parts but  in a really light way to  remove a little bit of color.


Il punto focale è lcostituito dalla nuova fustella Voltage di Tim Holtz. Lo ammetto all'inizio ero molto indecisa, non avevo capito esattamente come avrei potuto usarla... una volta avuta nelle mie mani ho capito che sarebbe stato amore! Ho inserito al di sotto del cerchio un timbro del set Inventror 2 e l'ho colorato. Per completare la mia idea ho aggiunto lo stencil Burst e due timbri dal set Noble gent.

For the focal point I used the new Voltage die by Tim Holtz. I admit it at the beginning I was very undecided, I did not understand exactly how I could use it ... once in my hands I realized it would be love! I inserted a stamp from the Inventor 2 set below the circle and colored it. To complete my idea I added the Burst stencil and two stamps from the Noble Gent set.



Non potevano mancare gli ingranaggi... in questo momento non ne posso quasi fare a meno...
tutti colorati con gli stessi acrilici così come la fustella Voltage.
Ho giocato ancora un pochino con il colore per evidenziare i raggi e ho aggiunto un pochino di  Distress Crayons metallizato.

The gears could not be missing ... all colored with the same acrylics as the Voltage die.
I played  with the color to highlight the rays and I added a little bit of metallized Distress Crayons.





Per finire non potevo non aggiungere l'iniziale del nome di Tim a cui ovviamente la tag è dedicata , dal momento che per me è sempre una incredibile fonte di ispirazione! Ognuno di noi ha i suoi miti e lui per me lo è... lo sapete da tempo!
Spero che vi sia piaciuta!


As a final step  it was right to add the letter T, Tim's initial to which obviously the tag is dedicated. Tim is always an incredible source of inspiration for me! 
I hope you enjoyed it!

Barbara, I couldn't wait to get over to see and read about the details on your blog, having seen this on the TH Addicts FB page and seeing it at SSS. What a delight! I love every single detail on this, especially your beautiful use of color and texture! I was not sold on this die, either, but seeing it here made me add it to the wish list. Gorgeous make, as ALWAYS! Thank you so much for celebrating our 5th year with us at A Vintage Journey! Hugs!
