God Bless...Tim Holtz!!

I have watched two days of videos from Online Card Classes: Creative Chemistry with Tim Holtz.  I am really not a grungy, vintage type person but I absolutely adore some of the brilliant color effects that can be achieved with Tim Holtz products.  My card today uses his Brushless Watercolor technique.  This card is about as "grungy" as I get (not up to Tim Holtz standards!) - but I am in love with my colored flowers!!


I used today's sketch challenge at Splitcoast:

  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Sweet Silhouettes, Rose Collage (sentiment)
  • Paper: Papertrey Ink Terracotta Tile, Ripe Avocado, Royal Velvet, Stampin' Up First Edition dsp, watercolor paper
  • Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Seedless Preserves, Wild Honey, Fired Brick, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and on the edges I used Broken China and Walnut Stain
  • Accessories: Nestabilities Oval die, Papertrey Terracotta Ribbon

I have missed out on some fun! A week away on hols followed by a busy week getting organised for our school fair has meant I have missed a few posts! Sorry! (I will scroll back & check them out!)

I love the watercolour effect with the flowers - it's really pretty. Great layout too! Love the colours you've used here too.

I have to admit that I really enjoy getting all inky - missing my craft room so much!
