Meet The Ancestors!

I think these Hipsters characters from Tim Holtz are one of those things that you either love or hate - like Marmite! I must admit I wasn't sure, but they have kind of grown on me.
While away at our recent scrapbooking retreat, I got to play with these stamps and dies (Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous Cling Mount Stamps and the coordinating Sizzix Framelits Die Sets).

There are five characters in the set. 

I cut the glasses in black cardstock but it would be good to cut them from different materials, such as metallic card.
I painted the images before layering them up with 3D foam pads. I added some shading behind each image. The painting was all done with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. 

The glasses were glazed with Ranger's Glossy Accents.

I will probably remove these from the frames and make cards with them, but it was fun to frame them for this blog post.
Thanks for the loan of your dies and stamps Linda.
Thanks for looking
