Natasha Returns

Meet Natasha. She has returned for another appearance on my blog (see previous post here). She's an image transfer laid on top of a background made from the bricks Mixed Media Thinlit by Tim Holtz.

There's also a scrap of his Tissue Wrap and the butterflies are a stamp from Prima. A bit of embossed polka dots (Tim's Dots & Florals stamp) and a stitched border that was painted and embellished with black Gelly Roll lines complete the look.

I've recently entered the world of die-cutting and I'm learning as I go. As if I didn't collect enough collage "scraps" already, I've got a feeling this new technique will add to my collection exponentially!

Here's what I know now: Tissue paper over die-cuts can work and look OK but I don't care for the appearance of the image transfer over them and won't do this again in the future.


  1. This tag is so beautiful! Love it!

  2. This is wonderful! I love the tissue wrap layer. The doodled edge is fantastic! Yes, die cuts can definitely add to our scrap piles, but now I use all of my paper waste as dies. I get my kids to roll them out for me and pay them a few bucks. Ha! Fun times... Hugs, Autumn

  3. This is so cool! Love the texture and the vintage look. The doodled edge is amazing! Hugs, Sandra

  4. Idk, man: this looks pretty cool to me... but what I love about this are the itty-bitty polka dots :)
