Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 2- Rupert

Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! Today I am back with another project that I made for the Tim Holtz Sizzix 2021 Chapter 2 Reveal. This time, it’s a whimsical, over-sized card featuring the new Colorize character, Rupert.

Isn’t he adorable? I just love these playful Colorize critters, and am so happy to have this quirky dragon to add to my collection. Rupert has been die cut from a combination of Tim’s kraft stock Distress cardstock and Distress watercolor cardstock that was colored with Distress Oxide and Ink. I really like mixing the two mediums when I’m building images, as I feel like that adds a variety of visual textures to the finished project. You can see that Rupert is a nice large size, too, which makes him quite the statement piece for larger cards or altered art or even home decor. Couldn’t you just picture him in a kids room?

Do you see how Rupert’s hands are perfectly poised to grab onto something? So I thought why not give him a potted cactus to hold? Perfect excuse to add in a background scene using the Quirky Cactus die set, another new addition to the Chapter 2 release. Once again, the cacti were die cut from a combination of kraft stock and inked watercolor paper. The cactus in the pot was too tall to fit my scene in it’s original form, but the beauty of die cuts is you can alter them to fit your needs. So a quick whack off the bottom cut the potted cactus down to size.

Rupert was also too large for my scene, so he got a bit of a trim, as well. I added a big ribbon bow and an Idea-ology sentiment sticker. The background is Distress watercolor paper that has been inked and stenciled and coated with Distress Crackle Paste. I am a little bit obsessed with the texture of that paste, I must say.

This was such a fun project to make, and it really brings a smile to my face. Such a whack-a-do design, with a dragon frolicking in his cactus garden…. but that’s what makes it so fun. Every once in awhile it’s wonderful to just let your imagination go.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a fabulous day!
