Fun Birthday and Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - May
You won't be surprised to read that I've been playing with Distress Inks again. I inked the cloud stencil (TCW) with Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Stormy Sky, spritzed and laid onto my card base, with the lower portion masked off so that I could add some Salty Ocean and Antique linen for sea and sand. Added some splashes of water for a ..erm, water effect, and some stamped images from a magazine freebie set. The sentiment is from the new release at Winnie & Walter. I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Just Add Ink - watercolour
Winnie & Walter - Join In To Win
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Continuing with Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014, here's his tag for May:
The idea is to use all those bits of TH ephemera that you're holding on to (which assumes that you bought some in the first place). Actually I have some of those genuine nibs somewhere in my attic from my pen and ink drawing days. But they're in my attic. So I used what I had to hand. I love the shadowpress panels but the sales blurb mentions that they are specifically for use in just about every machine bar Cuttlebug. Anybody tried them in a Cuttlebug?
A pale imitation of the master's, but it's all about having a go.
