Happy Monday, crafty friends! Today I am so excited to share with you the first project that I made for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 4 release for 2020. Chapter 4 is a smaller release, but it is mighty! The Chapter 4 sets are a continuation of the fall and winter seasonal release started in Chapter 3. There is a little bit of fall, a little Halloween, and a bit of the holidays, too. My favorite set from the release is the Day of the Dead Colorize set, which I’ve used here to create a home decor piece in a 5×7 frame.
Look at all the amazing detail on these Day of the Dead characters. I love his guitar that snugs perfectly into his outstretched hands, and I just adore how it looks like she is dancing. I used muted earthy colors of Distress cardstock mixed with lots of stark black to build my couple. The new Engraved 3D embossing folder was used to add texture to her skirt and dress collar. I added Idea-ology bones and an inked bouquet flower to add some festive touches to the scene.
Day of the Dead pairs brilliantly with the Gate Keeper set from Chapter 3, and that is what I used to create the gates and add the moon and bats to the sky. I wrapped rusty wire around the gate posts to add that broken down feeling of disrepair and age you’d find in an old cemetery. Moss glued to the bottom of the frame gives them a nice carpet for dancing. The sentiment comes from the Idea-ology Halloween Clippings stickers. And of course the night time sky was made from Distress ink and paint splatters.
Do you have a favorite set from the Chapter 4 release? If you haven’t had a chance to see it all yet, be sure to check out the full post on the Tim Holtz blog.
