When I saw the 'Vintage Camera' die by Tim Holtz/Alterations
on the Sizzix website recently for silly money I had to get it.
This is the first time I've used it and am not entirely happy
with what I've done with it - it looks as though I've just
placed a copper card under it, when in fact each piece is a
separate die cut.
I'll have to try something different next time I use it.
I was originally going to cut the camera from leather,
but found a sturdy piece of board from the cover of an
old diary which had a lovely texture on, so used that
instead and coloured it with 'Walnut Stain' distress ink.
I like the background which is the technique from
Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Vol II
called 'Riveted Patchwork'.
Just stick randomly shaped pieces of silver tape
and make various marks along the seams, then
colour with alcohol inks and sand off.
It's a shame the camera covers most of it up.
I added a little snippet of Tim Holtz film strip
to go with the camera theme.
This is heading for a keen photographer,
hope he'll like it.
Thanks for looking and say cheese :)
