Distress Photo Tinting Pg. 41 #12

Hello again! Wow, it seems like time is just flying by!!!
I can't believe we are now progressing into challenge #12
from Tim's book Curoisity of Compodium #3 already.
This challenge can be found on page 41.
If you still want to join in you can purchase a copy of Tims
book directly from him at his blog site. Alas, before I forget
I am adding the before and after picture.

Thank you to Linda Ledbetter for hosting:

Thank you also to Tim and Mario for the great stash of goodies
that is awarded to the winner!!! And to the ladies of the CCCrew
for their time and dedication! It is appreciated.

So here are the ingredients: This little guy and I went around the
block a few times for the sake of trying to get it right!!!
A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I had gone out on an outing
and decided to go the backway to our destination. We stopped in
at this out of the way place that sells antiques and everything else
under the sun. I browsed around a bit then I asked the owner if he
had any old pictures for sale. He said he had a few and this is where
I found the little guy I am submitting for this current challenge. I
had vintage pictures at home but wanted something of the moment.
I practiced on several versions and liked this one the best. I used
the following to achieve the outcome:

I used a 4 by 4 wood piece that was gessosed already.  I used some
Antiquities paper on the background, Tim Holtz Music Tape & Gathered
twig. I used the new Rusty Hinge Distress Spray stain on feathers.
Tim Holtz Distress Markers: Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Wild Honey,
Faded Jeans & Tumbled Glass to photo tint my little guy.
New Ideaology Gundrops which I left in
its natural color to blend with background. I used Cargo Stencil on the
background with Wendy Vecchis Embossing paste. I used Antique Linen,
and Vintage photo on actual photo to age as instructed in the book. I
Stamped the background with Tims Harlequin stamp w/Stazon Black Ink.
I cut out the feathers from Tim Holtz Wallflower papers & used Wendy
Vecchis Art Parts Modeling Film (which I cut out) behind the feathers
so I could mold them a bit. Tim Holtz Golden Honey Jute string,
and the little "enjoy the little things" is from Prima!
I used Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Clear Rock Candy
on the feathers. I used Wendy Vecchis translucent paste on
the edges around the framing. Tim Holtz Bronze Corner Tabs.

Thank you for stopping by!
