Inspired by Tim

Country View Crafts had a Tim Holtz challenge this month.  So I made some simple cards.

It started when I was mucking around with some Ranger texture paste, colouring it with silver paint, and mixing ultrafine glitter from Elizabeth Crafts to the paste.  And then I put it through the Tim Holtz Gothic Stencil.

I also wanted to try out a technique I'd seen from somewhere (I can't remember where), where you scribble markers onto acetate and then use it to smoosh over a stamped and embossed image to make a cool background.  I heat embossed the swallowtail butterfly from the Perspectives stamp set. and then used a variety of Distress Markers to make a rainbow style background.  (the original video used Tombow markers).

I used Distress Inks to edge the watercolour, and the texture paste piece, and layered them onto some papers from the old French Industrial paper stack.
