Tim did a packing tape transfer onto foil for his technique today. I was pretty thrilled, because I love packing tape transfers, but mine did not come out nicely. In fact, it shredded. I always use the thinnest possible paper for my transfers, so using the thick printed cardstock gave me a lot of problems. I finally threw up my hands and finished the pennant using an older technique where I just glue images to fragments and make ornaments that way.
Fragments are even thicker than ribbon bows, so I didn't hesitate to use gold braid on this pennant. I would like to make a comment about Tim's seasonal stack, in fact all his stacks - the colors are dim and gray-bluish. It put me off using them until it hit me - they only look good after you distress them, and a yellowish ink, like the antique linen or the tea dye, balance out the bluish gray and bring the color into a normal, usable range. This is such a Tim Holtz thing to do, to create papers that need to be distressed.
