Swap using Tim Holtz products

Joined a Tim Holtz swap on Atc's for all and just finished the cards today.

Products used: Tim Holtz idea-ology lost and found paper stash, measuring tape, distress crackle paint, distress ink in vintage photo, gears, and Adirondack ink in mushroom.

I used the technique from this website (curbly.com) to create the bird and face silhouettes in photoshop. I originally found the website/idea on pinterest.

The silhouettes were printed on ink jet paper, matte gel medium by golden was used to transfer (how to) the image onto the art paper.

On the Atc's - my own flower photo, free image from flickr, sticks from my back yard, all are machine stitched, black ink pen, gesso, Ranger canvas atc card (far left), and a honeycomb stencil.
